Enduring Justice by Amy Wallace opens with the reader finding out about Hanna Kessler’s “secret” of past abuse. In a series of flashbacks that Hanna would rather have kept hidden and private, the author slowly divulges what will become Hanna’s present demons.
Hanna’s love interest, Michael Parker, is hot on the trail of solving a missing child case, with striking details to an incident that Hanna knows more about than she is willing to tell.
The main character’s past abuse and relationship with her father become blurry at times. Hanna seems more concerned at “protecting” her father from finding out the truth of her abuse, than squaring what happened to her and beginning the “healing process”.
The book may have had a more believable story line if Hanna had been written as a stronger female lead character. All in all, it was a decent read, but it leaves the reader wondering if all of Hanna’s personal issues were really resolved in the end.
