REVIEW: Weight of the World (Old Wounds #3) by N.K. Smith


Now that the lonely and deeply damaged teenagers have discovered a strong interest in one another, what else is left to reveal and how much more can each of them handle? Sophie has taken great steps to let him in, but is Elliott ready to do the same?

With a painful past buried deep within him, Elliott embarks on a journey of self-discovery propelled by a need to be normal for his new girlfriend. Amid a lifetime of betrayal, Sophie continues down the perilous road of recovering her true strength. Each of them has something to hide and an incredible untapped reserve of compassion, love, and friendship.

Their new relationship is put to the test by both mundane and extraordinary circumstances alike. Sophie has to face up to the life she’s led, while Elliott must decide to come to terms with the life he’s been given.

The hardest part of learning how to love is allowing oneself to be vulnerable to another. As children, their choices were taken from them, and as young adults they struggle to lower their walls and let each other in. Sophie Young and Elliott Dalton continue to explore life,
themselves, and each other. They learn how to trust and what it takes to fully participate in a life of love.. Every day they reveal a little more about themselves, but will it be enough or will the past continue to hold them hostage?

Every time I've picked up the next book within this exceptional series. I'm not surprised by how great it is.

The characters are gritty, realistic and quite frankly fascinating. With their dark and cruel pasts, that chase's and ensnares them in the present.

The character's become more loveable every time you learn something new.

And the plot is ceaseless at capturing your attention and dragging you into the fictional world that N.K Smith has written. (An unfortunate world that can be very real for many un-named people out there.)

This has to be one of my all time favourite series.

Now I'll start the grand finale.

And I'm dreading opening it, but only because I know this will be the last book and I'm not quite ready to let go of Sophie and Eliot's story.

This has to be one of the most poignant reads upon my shelf.
