Sara's Son by Tara Taylor Quinn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Absolutely the best book I've read so far from this author. Years after 3 men went to jail for statutorily raping her, a recently-divorced woman meets the son she bore as a result of that night--a night neither she nor her assailants remember--and gave up for adoption. He's found evidence that perhaps her attack had been arranged to cover up another crime. As they dig into the past, they start working with one of the convicted rapist--a very nice man who is horrified at himself for doing this thing he doesn't remember doing. Meeting his victim and working with her gives him a chance at love again--but can they overcome the past?
If you find the concept of a woman falling for the man who apparently date-raped her difficult to swallow and offputting--normally, so would I. But Quinn pulls it off, probably because she shows the hero as such a genuinely kind and caring person, surprisingly untainted by years in prison, who may be as much a victim as the heroine. Recommended.
