What would you do for those you love?
Sarah loves her husband, so when his organs start to fail, she knows she has to find a donor. When she finds out about a secret half-brother, she does not let the fact that he is in prison for murder stop her.
Dylan was convicted of a murder he claims he did not commit. When Sarah comes along to ask for his blood, he knows he has to take advantage. Striking a deal: his blood in return for a lawyer, he finally has hope that the truth will be revealed.
In Donna Jean Picerno’s Blood Brothers, she demonstrates how love can prevail when going through the depths of despair. A story with borderline profanity, little to no sexual or religious content, and a few spelling and grammatical errors, a quick and enjoyable read was created.
Although categorized as a suspense romance, this book leaned more towards romance than suspense. This led to expecting a situation to turn dicey and ended with some disappointment. Additional suspense would have amplified the storyline and resulted in a higher rating. Therefore, 4 out of 5 stars is given.
Yet, this tale is not all sunshine and roses, so please use caution if triggered by any of these events: leukemia, stem cell donation, heart attack, murder, incarceration, car accident, mental illness.
All things considered, a novel depicting how there is always a silver lining when the clouds seem too dark. To see it, you just need to focus on faith, family, and love.
