Blurb: There are some mistakes we make that we will regret for the rest of our lives. For Christian, it was the day he betrayed Elizabeth.
Christian Davison has a plan for his life. He is determined to become an attorney and to one day take his place as partner in his father’s law firm. Nothing will stand in his way, not even Elizabeth Ayers and their unborn child.
After Christian cuts her from his life, Elizabeth spends the next five years struggling to provide for her daughter and willing to sacrifice anything to give her child a safe, comfortable life.
For five years, Christian has regretted the day he walked away from his family and will do anything to win them back just as Elizabeth will do anything to protect her daughter from the certain heartache she believes Christian will bring upon them.
When Christian wrestles his way into their lives, Elizabeth is faced with asking herself if it is possible to forgive someone when they’ve committed the unforgivable and if it is possible to find a love after it has been buried in years of hate. Or are there some wounds that go so deep they can never heal?
They say everyone deserves a second chance.
Review: Christan walks out on a pregnant Elizabeth, the pregenacy itself is hell on her body, though she has a friend to lean on. Fast forward five years when his eyes meet with a little girl in a grocery story and a connection is made. Christan spends the almost the entire story trying to make up for the mistakes of his youth. Elizabeth isn't going to let him back into her life so easily, though she will not deny access to his daughter...
Take This Regret is told through First person with alternating POV's, which adds to the levels of complexity in this story. It was a highly emotional read, she'll take you through the betrayal, anger, longing, deep love and finally redemption. It is not an easy road by any means. It was a wonderful story by a master storyteller. A.L. Jackson is definitely an author to keep an eye on.
I give Take This Regret 4 stars.
