My Review






The author grabbed my attention right from the beginning, and what a beginning, have the tissues handy.
Trying to find peace, going to a happy spot, this is what brings Annie Marlow back to Oceanside, and an entirely new start on her shattered life.
I loved these characters and they all seemed so real, and they meld together beautifully, hurting yes, but so much compassion for those less fortunate.
I do have to admit, I couldn’t put this one down, and now I’m sad that the page turning is over, I wanted even more, even with the epilogue!

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Ballantine Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
