Georgia and Moses meet at such a young age. But I think it because of it, that their relationship evolves as quickly as it does. Georgia is a VERY naive teenage girl, who knows that Moses is not like the other boys, but is still drawn to him. At times, his strange behavior puzzles her but I think it also pulls her closer.
"Maybe it was being seventeen, maybe it was first love, or first lust. Maybe it was just hot. But I wanted him with a desperation that consumed me. I had never wanted anything so much in my life. And I couldn’t imagine wanting something so much ever again."
They are given only a short time together before their world implodes and they are ripped apart. And the wreckage left behind is devastating. It gutted me to read how Georgia fought to hold on, while Moses is steadily pushing her away. I understood his reasoning but it didn't make it any easier to experience.
The Law of Moses is very difficult to review. There are quite a few twists that could easily be spoiled by saying too much. So, I'll just say, it really is a book that just has to be read to experience all the beauty it has to offer. It is one that will show you love, true love, is blind to all the obstacles that stand in its way. Even the ones that destroy you. Can Moses and Georgia's love for one another pull them out of the depths of despair they've both found themselves in and to the other side, one where they both find peace and happiness?
And once you finish The Law of Moses, go pick up ALL of Amy Harmon's other books. Each one is very unique in its storyline and just as well written!
