Unbound: A Novel by Teri Davis is a dramatic fiction story, the prequel to Unveiled. The Great Depression left everyone struggling, doing what they could to survive. In a small town in rural Ohio in 1936, a stranger is about to change the lives of two boys forever. The best of friends, the closest of brothers, the boys are torn apart by circumstances out of their control. But circumstance also throws them back together again. Until the war. The US has joined WWII, retaliating against the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor and the boys are about to be tested beyond all comprehension. Can their tenuous bonds survive? Can a mother’s love bring them back together or will it be the one thing that destroys them forever?

Unbound: A Novel by Teri Davis is a fantastic read. It is the prequel to Unveiled, which I have not read, and it explains how the feud between the MacFaddens and the Loftons began. Starting out in the 1930s and 1940s, the language perfectly fits the era and the locations. It opens with a prologue, a brief look into the future, before hurling us back to the beginning. There is plenty of action, not a page going by without something happening to keep you on your toes. The characters are just wonderful, so well-developed that you feel as though you’ve been living next door to them all your life. Their story is one of wonder, sadness, and the true bonds of brotherhood and friendship, a rollercoaster story that will have you on the edge of your seat, desperate to find out what happens to them. If you’ve read Unveiled, this book will explain it all; if you haven’t, it doesn’t matter, you’ll enjoy this book anyway.
