Can you live a lie?
It’s a ghost town, this place that haunts me, the one that made me.
It’s clear to me that I’ll never outgrow Triple Falls or outlive the time I spent
I can still feel them all, my boys of summer.
Even when I’d sensed the danger, I gave in.
I didn’t heed a single warning. I let my sickness, my love, both rule and ruin
me. I played my part, eyes wide open, tempting fate until it delivered.
There was never going to be an escape.
All of us are to blame for what happened. All of us serving our own
sentences. We were careless and reckless, thinking our youth made us
indestructible, exempt from our sins, and it cost us all.
I’m done pretending I didn’t leave the largest part of me between these
hills and valleys, between the sea of trees that hold my secrets.
It’s the reason I’m back. To make peace with my fate.
And if I can’t grieve enough to cure myself in my time here, I’ll remain sick.
That will be my curse.
But it’s time to confess, to myself more so than any other, that I’d hindered
my chances because of the way I was built, and because of the men who built me.
At this point, I just want to make peace with who I am, no matter what
ending I get.
Because I can no longer live a lie.
““I didn’t know how f****** possessed I was until I saw the way they loved you.”
If you look up “Exodus” in the dictionary… you will see it as the book that will fuel your soul and then absolutely crush it.
Flock leaves us with a bit of a hanger as we are finally introduced to The Frenchman and all the darkness that follows him.
Cecelia wants nothing more than to be reunited with the two mysteries that stole her heart, but fate has other plans.
Exodus is a rollercoaster and feels like two books smashed into one.
Expect to fall in love, to fan yourself from the HEAT, and to sob as you try to retrieve the pieces after the explosion that hits your heart.
I’m naming Exodus in my top 10 reads of 2021.. all consuming and completely destructive.
I also have a special place for this book from the Thorn Birds references… which is my all time favorite book.
Come take a ride in Dom’s black Camaro, learn how to love insatiably, and unravel the mysteries and confusion created by the men that changed you and made you.
Read if you love:
