by Nora Roberts
The Shelter in Place is a story of rebuilding, moving on, and growing. Nora Roberts is the author of this novel. Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels. Her most popular novels are The Liar, The Collector, Whiskey Beach, The Witness, and many more. Terrifying and heartbreaking, and in true Nora R fashion, draws you in until the characters are right there beside you, smiling, crying, breathing. The romance took a bit to heat and discover, but that’s actually okay. It is actually better the romance part waited, because neither was ready for it until then. Ms. R is fabulous with relationships, especially family ones, and here, we would say the family is the romance, the love, if you will. From the ‘traditional’ family structure to the hero who made his own family, it all was so well.
It is a story of rebuilding, moving on, and growing. Not just maturing but actually growing and of PTSD, something so rarely is spoken of and acknowledged. Each character fought his/her own demons and battles. Some won. Some didn’t. But all changed from who he/she was at the start to who he/she was at the end. And that’s the hope we all have, isn’t it? To simply live life the way it should be lived, even when bad things happen.
