Delayed Justice is one of my favorite books so far for 2019. While Jaime’s backstory is heartbreaking, it was handled with extraordinary grace and sensitivity. There are not many authors who can take on the challenge of writing about child abuse and write it in such a way as it is portrayed in Delayed Justice.
The heartfelt reactions and emotions of the characters will reach through the pages and make you long to take care of all their problems. Jaime’s refusal to accept the presence of a loving God is understandable, and her friends’ refusal to give up on her shows the true meaning of friendship.
Chandler is probably the best male character ever. If I was creating awards, he would win (maybe I’ll do that just for fun). I’m going to use the phrase beautifully broken for both Jaime and Chandler. Neither of them has had the easiest life, and they both chose to use their past to help others.
The writing was beautiful, with excellent setting and characters that could have walked right off the page and out into real life. Also, best ending ever! I think I actually clapped my hands.
I received a copy of the book from NetGalley. I was not required to leave a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
