So Near the Horizon

so near

So Near the Horizon is not an easy read and worth the time you will invest as it is a story that should be told. The subject matter is hard: incest and rape of children, AIDS, and drug abuse but the story enfolding these issues is one of live and of building trust.

I spent so much emotional energy reading the story of Jessica, Danny and Christina that I had to leave the book at times just to recharge. Danny is a broken young man inside who developed a guarded exterior for protection and out of necessity. Jessica is the young girl who falls in love with him and helps him battle his demons. Christina is Danny’s closest friend who battles drug addiction. The future is never bright for them and they battle a fight to try a win a possibly losing battle.
