Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Beaten Paths is a spinoff of Stephie Wall’s 2018 release Gravel Road. That book had told the story of Randi and Austin, and how Randi ran away as a teenager after an accident that nearly killed her older sister, Sarah. (Sarah went out looking for Randi after a fight, and was hit by a car.) Now we come to Beaten Paths, which is Sarah’s story, and her tale of love with Austin’s brother, Charlie.

I love how Charlie was the last person Sarah was expecting to be by her side as she recovered, but he was strong, supportive and just there every step of the way. She’d long had a crush on him, and then suddenly he appeared in her life like a guardian angel, giving her hope where she thought there was none. Charlie hasn’t exactly had an easy go of things in life either. But he finds a kindred soul in Sarah and wonders how he never knew how wonderful she was.

There are some frustrating moments in Beaten Paths, but Charlie and Sarah have a wonderful relationship, and Stephie Walls does a great job of vividly creating the loss and pain Sarah’s going through. I didn’t like Sarah much in Gravel Road, but reading Beaten Paths gave me a much different outlook on Randi’s big sister and what she’d gone through as having to be the mother figure.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
