The Hermit, By Shayne McClendon


        No matter how much you try to distance yourself from people, there is always that one person who can break through your walls.  Ryan had erected walls around his life, afraid to get close to people for his reasons.  Daphne was scared of everything, including Ryan.  Being held captive and tortured
for years, she didn’t know what to expect.
Through his patience, Ryan was able to help her heal, but she also helped heal him as well.
This book was amazingly powerful in so many different ways. The strength that it shows of two  complete strangers who help each other heal, it gives you hope in people. This is not a “normal” love story, but it shows the love that starts out as caring grow into something more serious. It is amazing what people can go through in their life, yet still manage to come out stronger than they were before.
It also shows that sometimes, the most important thing that you can do for a person in need is to just answer the phone and listen to them.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a new read; I have actually purchased several copies of this book for friends of mine. I think this book is a must read for everyone.
