As Waters Gone By
How can a marriage survive when separated by hundreds of miles and impenetrable prison walls?
Emmalyn and Max Ross may have to endure the fight of their lives to mend the tattered fabric of their marriage. His actions ensured she could never be a mother and put him in prison, giving their relationship a court-mandated five-year time-out. On a self-imposed exile to beautiful but remote Madeline Island, one of the Apostle Islands of Lake Superior, Emmalyn has just a few months left to figure out if and how they can ever be a couple again.
Nudged along by the exuberant owner of the Wild Iris Inn and Café, a circle of misfit people in their small town, and a young girl who desperately needs someone to love her, Emmalyn restores an island cottage that could become a home and begins to restore her heart by learning what it means to love unconditionally. Yet even as hope begins to find a place within the cottage walls, Emmalyn still wonders if she’s ready for Max’s release. She may be able to rebuild a cottage, but can she rebuild a marriage?
My thoughts: This is the first book that I have read by this author. I've looked at them a time or two, but never taken the time to sit down and read one of her titles. I am so glad that I received this one to review! The story was different, in a good way. I like that she builds the story, rather than giving you all the information about the characters at once. The secondary characters are amazing and full of depth, which is a huge plus in my book! I also really enjoyed her descriptive way of writing. And, the story itself was amazing! Two thumbs up!
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
