Rachel Wells loses everything she cherishes in a brief summer storm off the coast of Florida. Haunted by the ghosts of her past, driven to the point of insanity by survivor’s guilt, Rachel turns her back on the world and retreats to a deserted island with her cat. Here she plans to live out her life in isolation, frozen behind an impenetrable veil of pain. That is, until she receives a gift from the sea that opens a slit in the veil and allows the world to intrude. Ignoring her conscience, Rachel learns too late that some gifts are not meant to be kept forever, and that forgiveness and redemption sometimes require sacrifice. The gods and spirits watch as the many layers of love unfold to reveal a complex finale.
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review* This was an emotional tale. I'll warn you, as a mother, you have no choice but to cry and hurt. You feel Rachel's pain every step of the way! I think that the twist at the end was just wonderful! This book is about a woman healing after losing her child and husband. She goes about it in an odd way, but this book is just a beautiful story that you can't help but love. Page by page, I was taken away with this story. Any woman, any mother, can relate to this story.
