BOUND by Victoria Lynn || Book review

Two souls don’t find each other by simple accident. ~Jorge Luis Borges~

Levi thought he was making this journey alone. But when he meets an eight-year-old girl at the train station, that plan is turned on its head.

Casey is running away and finds out that Levi is too. They decide to journey together and their lives are suddenly bound together in a journey they will not soon forget.

Both children come from abusive situations and are running from the dangers of their previous life. Levi is confident he can handle this on his own, but when Casey is injured on the journey, he must seek help from the first person that comes into his path, or rather people. Mr. and Mrs. Bellworth are simple farm folk with a heart for kids and a passion for serving God. When their unconditional love and gentle care surrounds Levi and Casey, the troubles of their previous lives melt away and they start to flourish. But when Casey is dragged back into the abusive world she came from, the emotional trauma, pain and distrust resurfaces. Will they be forever bound by their past? Or will God answer their prayers?

BOUND is such a sweet story about friendship, forgiveness, love, and redemption. I thought that the author did a great job with addressing some hard topics such as abuse / drug dealing, and there is just so much emotion in this story that made it absolutely beautiful. This book is just so precious.

I absolutely loved all of the characters in this book! Levi and Casey were just so sweet and I love how they connected from the very beginning. They both went through so much, and it was so sweet to see the outcome of it all. Mikayla was another character that I really liked. I loved her personality and I thought that she was a perfect fit to the story!

A quote was shared at the beginning of each chapter which I thought added to the story. I also really enjoyed the spiritual part of the story. A lot of Christian books honestly feel a little preachy to me, but this one didn’t at all.

This is the second book that I’ve read by this author, and I really enjoyed it. I definitely recommend reading this story!
