It Will Always Be Us
I’m always excited to read the latest book by Theresa Sederholt. She doesn’t just write words, she pours her emotions onto the pages. You can feel what she is conveying with the simplest words, and grandest descriptions. I’m always immersed in a world that I can come alive with. Her heart is written into every nuisance of the story, and her characters emote every part of her secret self. It is never just a story, but journey into the heart.
Fitz is a character that speaks to the hidden depths of ourselves. He is sinner and saint; flawed, yet seeking redemption. In this latest installment, we are gifted with a glimpse of this character’s innermost fears, humility, and devotion to all he holds sacred. The suspense and mystery that surround him with his latest case, force him to confront not only the demons of his past, but of his deepest soul.
While there is always plenty of case-solving and crime-fighting, there is an element of spirituality to this story that eclipses that of its predecessors. I praise the insight and ingenuity of this approach, and admire the beauty that revealed itself because of it.
I love how this author always meshes the secondary characters so seamlessly with the main story and character. Each one breathes their own story – their own hopes, dreams, and fears. The story is always multidimensional in its entirety, leaving no character abandoned in their own thread of the weave.
I won’t recount the story in my own words, as it will not do justice to this splendid book. An accomplishment for the author, and a wonderful journey for the readers. It Will Always Be Us, is one of the best works by this author and I thank her for giving us another amazing story.
