Poughkeepsie by Debra Anastasia
He counts her smiles every day and night at the train station. And morning and evening, the beautiful commuter acknowledges him—just like she does everyone else on the platform. But Blake Hartt is not like the others . . . he’s homeless. Memories of a broken childhood have robbed him of peace and twisted delusions into his soul. He stays secluded from the sun, sure the world would run from him in the harsh light of day.
This is not your typical romance. It is a beautiful, moving story that had me on an emotional roller coaster. At times touching and shocking. Filled with crude, creative cursing and sweet moments. Had me laughing out loud and reaching for the tissues. Deals with some tough issues such as homelessness, the foster care system, mental illness, and the sacrifices people make for those they love. This is an incredible story and I highly recommend it.
