This book was so wonderful.
It’s about the many different kinds of bravery. It takes courage to carry on, courage to step outside your comfort zone, courage to let go.
It’s about the sacrifices we think we are making for those we love, but are actually walls we are erecting for self-preservation. It’s about tearing down those walls brick by brick.
It’s about self-deception and erroneous assumptions.
Marin agrees to leave her cocoon of ten years for a sisters’ getaway. It turns into another type of adventure altogether when she meets Lucas. As he shows her around the island, she doesn’t recognize her flirty, forthright alterego. She takes risks, embraces danger, and loses her moorings.
The reason behind Marin’s solitary escape will turn her world upside down and result in an epiphany that changes her life.
Recommended if you settle in with this spectacular debut:
-A box of tissues within easy reach.
-No early morning appointments because you won’t be able to put it down once you pick it up.
