Kay Jacobson has led a far from charmed life although she never lets on. Behind her strong and seemingly manipulative facade lies an aching heart in need of some intense care. To much of the world she is a form of pleasure or evil, depending on the person’s worldview. What neither party knows is Kay never lets things go too far. Her strange ways are merely her way of paying back the father who hated her very looks. Stung by the rejection of her parents and sisters Kay would like to think she has moved on with her life. Flying has offered her so much more than what her parents ever gave. But her past has been the force that has driven her to the life she leads. Can she let go of it and learn to open up to people who love her for who she is?
I have a confession. After reading about Kay’s flippant character book one and two of this series I had no idea what to expect of In Perfect Time. There was a little voice in my head that kept saying I was going to hate it. But you guys knowing what a glutton for punishment that I am I dove in. It was hardly a mistake. Kay’s flawed character didn’t put me off like so many others have been doing lately. I daresay the author has only reinforced something I have always believed everyone should do: show mercy and kindness even to the people who seem tough and carefree – it could very well be a facade for a person crying out for help. It was enjoyable and at the same time sad to watch Kay’s transformation take place. Unlike a fairy-tale story it did’t get better all at once. Kay’s path to a new life was a long and difficult one fraught with disappointment, misunderstanding and heartache. Kind of like – oh I don’t know – life. A fabulous finale to a much-loved series. I look forward to reading whatever Sarah Sundin comes up with next.
