It is a clever book and the plot twists are indeed captivating. I hope it will come out in audio because that always seems to offer another level of awareness and resonance that one may miss with print. Both is always better for me.
gemma was such an incredible heroine because she was believable amd relatable. i found so many of my own qualities in her that i both love and hate to a fault.
gemma's husband ryan was such a great and loving guy and he truely cared for his wife. he made a terrible mistake and gemma was left with the "where do we go from here?" its so honest because you think, "just leave, walk away and find someone else," but the author explored the idea that we all have a part in the situations that take place in our lives; we must take responsibility and figure out a way to move on. "can i just walk away after so many years of unconditional love because of this one mishap?"
drew was swoon worthy! he and gemma were the best of friends and first loves. they spend every summer together as kids at the lake for vacationing. something happened and they were forced to seperate. after gemma found her husband cheating, she retreated to the lake after 20 years to fine solace. but what she found instead was drew, and after so many years apart, they said all that needed to be said, did all that should have been done. fate brought them to the lake together for a reason.
the authors writing style is great. i felt like i was watching a movie instead of reading words with no images. forgiveness was a reoccuring theme in this novel. but so was redemption. it was about finding yourself, not being afraid to live for fear of what might happen tomorrow. i also loved the exploration of fate and of the difference between soul mates and the ones you're supposed to share your life with. i was also intrigued by the idea of something bigger, beyond ourselves and not necessarily faith, but that the universe is so much bigger than ourselves and maybe life and death isnt all that defines our beginning and end. there is no cliffhanger, but the author left me asking so many questions, but the good kind, the kind that doesnt need answers accept that somethings, are to not be understood, just simply accepted.
i couldnt recommend this novel enough, i will surely keep cedergreen on my radar!
Gemma heads home early one day only to find her husband in bed with another woman. Sure things have been bad on the home front with the baby making process, but she didn't think it was that bad. With her heart broken, she heads back to the family cabin on the lake to try and make sense of her life.
Andrew Monroe is back at his family's lake cabin himself. He was summer friends with Gemma since they were children, until a tragedy tore them apart. He hasn't seen her in 20 years and didn't expect to now either. Like Gemma, Andrew has problems of his own and needed time to think it out away from his regular life.
I absolutely loved Gemma and Andrew as a "couple". Although they both have a ton of crap going on, they seemed to be making the most of the time they have together. Gemma missed him more than she ever thought she would, but still keeps some walls up as she doesn't really trust him. Actually, they are both hiding something big.
The weeks go by, Drew and Gemma fall into a happy routine together. One that makes her almost forget the cheating husband back at home. Of course things can't be this great, the book takes a turn and everything you just read has come into question. While I didn't hate the ending, I wasn't fond of the choices some of the characters made. The book was well written and makes you take a second to think about what you just read and if something like that is even possible.
