Anna and Keane are both running away from their lives. They both have been run through the gristmill by recent tragedy, and are trying to pick up the pieces and put themselves back together.
Keane wasn’t part of Anna’s plan. But neither was Ben’s death. And now she feels overwhelmed and abandoned and rudderless. An able seaman, willing to help her sail to Puerto Rico free of charge seems like a godsend. Soon, sharing her tiny space with him doesn’t seem weird. Soon, she looks forward to his cheeky grin and it no longer fazes her when he grabs the Capt. America mug for his morning coffee.
Keane is dazzled by Anna. By both her self-effacing beauty and her vulnerability. By her grit and her determination. He has his own demons to fight, but he would gladly spend the rest of his days watching sunsets with her. And when Anna finally begins to deviate from the course set by others abd sail where her heart longs to go, he hopes she’ll want him by her side.
I loved loved loved this story about second chances, finding the bottomless well of courage to face the hard days, climbing through your grief and carving your own path.
