“Grudges are heavy, but for the people hurting the most, I suppose
forgiveness is even heavier.”
Published in 2022, Reminders Of Him by Colleen Hoover follows Kenna Rowan who, five years after serving in prison for a tragic mistake, returns to the town where it all went wrong, hoping to reunite with her four-year-old daughter. But the bridges Kenna burned are proving impossible to rebuild. Everyone in her daughter’s life is determined to shut Kenna out, no matter how hard she works to prove herself.
The only person who hasn’t closed the door on her completely is Ledger Ward, a local bar owner and one of the few remaining links to Kenna’s daughter. The two form a connection despite the pressure surrounding them. But as their romance grows, so does the risk. Kenna must find a way to absolve the mistakes of her past in order to build a future out of hope and healing.
