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!
I don't want to re-hash the story, or give anything away, but I honestly thought I knew where the story was headed early on, and I was mostly right, that is until it took a complete U turn and I had a completely jaw dropping moment! Such a unique and uplifting ending, and so worth the ride through all the angst-filled moments. Highly, highly recommended.
The writing flowed effortlessly. I didn't feel like the author was trying to prove anything to me with exceptional analogies or whimsical writing. It was very straight forward and had a genuineness to it. I say that in the most complimentary way possible. I hate reading books with pretentious wording. I also appreciated the attention the editing. I honestly can't think of a single grammatical or spelling or punctuation mistake. I'm not a huge stickler for that kind of stuff, but I do appreciate it when I can read freely and not wonder who is speaking, or what is meant because of common spelling check mistakes. Lastly I just want to commend the cover of the book. It's such a breath of fresh air to see books that don't have male models with six pack abs of the front. I love an artistic cover and gravitate to books where the author took time and creativity to put a beautiful picture on the cover and not a greased-up sex model. ;)
Gemma is a strong and beautiful woman that has had to face betrayal from her husband. She takes time to try to find out where everything went wrong. She loves her husband but she knows that she had been pushing him away because of her fear and hurt over not being able to get pregnant with a baby. She has missed her childhood best friend and has lost part of herself.
Andrew has spent years upon years missing Gemma. He knew that she was the only girl/woman that he could truly love. He spent so much time with regret and knowledge of his loss. Also, he spent years not knowing the truth and thinking that Gemma betrayed him.
Ryan made a huge mistake. Gemma was pushing him away and he put himself in a bad situation not knowing it. He does truly love Gemma and his regret is real.
This book is definitely worth reading.
