“Aqua, someday when you’re older, you’ll look back at the events in your life and the people who have taken this journey with you—the good and the bad—and you’ll see them in a new light. That doesn’t mean that what is done or said can ever be changed, or that it was justified but when we choose to see people in the best possible light, and approach situations we don’t understand with curiosity, sometimes we find the reality is very different from what we imagined. Sometimes the only change that takes place is the change that happens within us, and often, that is enough.” (Mr. Weiker)
Aqua Weaver has always been the outsider, having hippie parents that did not fit the mold that most people considered normal. They raised their food, herbs, and made tinctures and natural products. Blake Stone came from an upper-class family that looked down on the Weavers.
“Was there any rejection more painful than the realization that the person you loved more than you even knew was possible had so completely and utterly rejected the people closest to you, and thereby rejected you too?”
Aqua will go to college and then onto New York City where she is a CPA and works for the CIA. When she comes home for the memorial, a place she has always sworn she would only visit, she sees it in a different light, and especially with her parents aging. Blake went to John Hopkins to become a doctor and has returned to Burnt River to set up a medical practice.
The plot will bring Aqua and Blake back together during her homecoming. Their relationship is hot one moment and cold the next. Secrets will be revealed, and then there is the issue of medical science versus homeopathic cures. There are several people who still are standing in the way for Blake and Aqua to try and get back together. Will family and friends put an end to their relationship before they even have a chance to explore their feelings? The CIA needs Aqua’s skills in a major money laundering case that will take her back to New York for many weeks, and it will involve working with an ex-boyfriend. Will absence make the heart grow fonder or let them realize that it was just infatuation?
Disclosure: I was gifted a Kindle copy of this book and am under no obligation to write a review and do so voluntarily. All thoughts, opinions, and ratings are my own.
There is a lot about family and acceptance of others in this book. I loved the strong bond that Aqua had with her parents. Even though she had different views on some things, she respected and loved her parents, and didn’t want to change them. I also admired the way her parents let her pursue her own life, even if it wasn’t like theirs. Blake had been raised very differently, and his judgment of Aqua’s parents was the main stumbling block to their relationship. It was nice to see him open his heart and really get to know her parents, and even find some common ground.
Contains some swearing.
