Mary Persephone Hail Mary—well-wished-for child. Persephone—destruction. Hail—well that speaks for itself. Her name is painful to think about. Mary, his newfound daughter, isn’t a wished-for child. Persephone, though? Yeah, destruction is a fitting description. And Hail? Yeah, that’s just the final f-you. The moment that her mother drops her off on his doorstep, Dante’s hell becomes complete. Or so he thinks. What can make life worse after losing one’s wife and kids, you ask? Here’s what: being given a baby that depends on him for her survival. Finding out that the baby’s mother is dying of brain cancer, and has a husband that he never knew about. A husband that Dante knows in the marrow of his bones is trying to kill her just as surely as the cancer eating her brain. Dante’s a bad person. He’s done some not so nice things, and now he’s being punished for his misdeeds. Karma is finally catching up to him. This child that he’s been stuck with is of his flesh and bone. This child is his salvation. This child is the final nail in the coffin of his wife and daughters’ too short lives. He doesn’t want this child. But this child will save him whether he wants her to or not. With the help of a friend—yes, a woman friend—Dante finds his way back to life. But what he finds when he gets back isn’t the same life that he left behind. Turns out, he has to start living a new one. One where he’s suddenly having feelings for a friend that helped him get through some tough times, and loving a daughter that won’t let him quit.

My Thoughts…

I am a Lani Lynn Vale fan.   I love a good beard, I love a big heart, and I love a sweet story.   That is all found in Hail Mary.  

 Dante has lost his family in an accident leaving him broken, lost, and   not living life.    When his daughter is dropped off at his house and left for him to raise I could feel some hope coming into his life.     Then he meets Cobie and I wonder how she will fit into his life.    Cobie has cancer and is fighting it alone.    She has no family or friends to rely on so Dante steps in to help her out.   What he doesn’t realize is how much Cobie is going to help him out. 

As the story continued I was glad that it wasn’t easy.   It was hard, very hard for both characters to open their lives and accept each other.   It was more difficult for Dante as he was still living in the house his wife and kids were in with him and he brought Cobie into that house but it should not be easy to move past all that loss.    There were times that I was worried that Cobie would give up hope and not accept Dante with his flaws but in true Lani Lynn Vale style these characters worked it out, figured out what needed to be done and how to get to their happy ending. 

This is my first Hail Raiser’s book but I am excited to get back to reading and meeting the rest of the crew.
