H.M.Irwing's heartaches is one of a kind. It contains a mixture of emotions, ranging from sadness,turmoil,trauma and happiness. The protagonists Rafe and Anna experience very horrid situations but are able to find comfort in each other's arms. They are able to understand each other from the moment they meet. They both see the pain in each others eyes at that very moment. It is the kind of pain that can only be seen from another who has experienced the same horrid event.
Anna has just lost her step father but this does not make her sad because the dad was abusive to both her and her mum. Unfortunately this does not end their predicaments as Brian her step brother end up using her to pay off his debt to the Preston's. She is raped by three men including her boy friend Matt. This stirs in her feelings of depression and self pity making her feel betrayed.
Rafe on the other hand comes home from Syria. Nothing was better for him than coming home to his aunt and his aging dog. He is also a victim of sexual assault and wants to put everything behind him. The pain and trauma he experienced broke him into pieces he could never recollect again. The pain is never ending for him. This is why when he meets Anna he sees the same pain he sees in the mirror everyday.
Together Rafe and Anna decide to help each other get their strength back. They both want justice for what they went through, the horrid experiences they had to endure. They both found trust in each other and are able to see light at the end of the tunnel. Together they can achieve the justice they both want and be able to live in peace and love thereafter.
I definitely give this book a 4 out of 4.The story flows very well and is very unique from other romance novels I have come across. I loved the fact that the story is not obvious as such. he use of vivid description is clearly depicted in the book. Though this book may not be suitable for sensitive people due to the overwhelming sad events that transpire. The book has a few editing errors but that does not stop one from enjoying the great flow.
