Author J.M. Darhower

Ever since she was young, JM Darhower has found writing to be therapeutic. Her passions include crafting, mothering, politics, books, and speaking out about human trafficking, and she can often be found on twitter, sharing her random thoughts and opinions on those subjects. She lives in the Carolina's with her amazing family, and she’d love to hear from you. 

I can't express in words how much in love with this novel myself and the other three wonderful ladies part of the "Author of the Week" team are. But I suppose, in the best way we can word it, you'll find out at the end of the week... in the form of a review.

Look for the review to be posted on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Author-of-the-Week/324746787635796

Novels by J.M. Darhower:

Sempre (Forever) Synopsis

This is a story about sacrifice... death... love... freedom. This is a story about forever. Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco had vastly different childhoods. Haven, a second-generation slave, grew up isolated in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, lived a life of privilege, never having to answer for anything he did. 

Both now seventeen, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide, making them question everything they ever believed. Entangled in a web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface, they have more in common than anyone would think.

In a world full of chaos, where money and power rule, Haven and Carmine yearn to break free, but a string of events that started before either were born threatens to destroy them instead. Murder and betrayal are a way of life, and nothing comes without a price-- especially not freedom. How much will they have to sacrifice? Can they escape their pasts? And, most of all, what does it mean to be free? Not everything is as it seems, and no one can possibly come out unscathed, but maybe, just maybe, it’ll be worth it in the end.

J.M. Darhower is also in the process of writing the unnamed sequel to Sempre.  Info on the novel coming soon.

  1. This really was an awe inspiring book. It brought to light the fact that slavery does still exist. It also added the mafia and I'm borderline obsessed with that subject. I love that Haven was such a strong character, when a lot of us would have cracked. I can't wait for more Haven and Carmine.
