From Goodreads.com: "Eighteen years ago a teenage pregnancy changed Kate Worthington’s life forever. Faced with many difficult decisions, she chose to follow her heart and embrace an uncertain future with the father of her baby and her devoted first love…
At the same time, in another part of the world, sixteen-year-old Ryan Hamilton makes his own share of mistakes, but learns important lessons along the way.
Soon Kate’s and Ryan’s paths cross in a way they never expected, which makes them question the possibility of destiny. Even when all seems hopeless, could it be that everything happens for a reason, and do we end up exactly where we are meant to be?"
My Two Cents:
"The Color of Destiny" is the second book in Julianne MacLean's The Color of Heaven series and I liked this one even better than the first book. Although this is the second book in the series, you definitely do not need to read the first book before you read this one (although you should read that one at some point because it is also a good book) as this book follows a minor character in the first book.
The book follows the story of Kate and Ryan. Kate and Ryan both have had very difficult lives in very different ways. Their story is a story of redemption and fate and of course, destiny. The book is told from the perspective of several different characters including Kate and Ryan. Again, the first person narration worked oh so well here because you really get a chance to get into the characters' heads, which is important as there is a huge twist or rather a couple of huge twists in the book where it's so good to know what's going on in the characters' heads.
At first is a little bit difficult to see how things are going to come together because the book goes through a lot of Kate's story and then Ryan's story comes in much later. I kept waiting for the connection between the two and eventually it does come and it is fantastic so it is definitely worth sticking this book out. I am looking forward to the next book in this series!
