A story of tragedy, love, longing, and twists that you won’t see coming.
I really liked this story and the writing was done in a way that kept me pushing through the book to find out what happened in the past, what was going to happen, and how these two were going to live their Happily Ever After.
Declan, is a young man who has been through enough tragedy to last anyone’s lifetime. His tragedy led to things in his life that drew him to substances to help him find ways to cope with life and his demons. His family has been funding Tristan Island for many years and he feels that if he can get away from the temptations in Boston, he can clean himself up. Although, there are dark thoughts that are plaguing him as well.
Finely, a young woman who has been through her fair share of tragedy as well. Both of her parents are gone, and she’s raised by her grandmother on the tiny Island of Tristan, the only way to get to the Island was by boat. No large boats could dock on the island though, they had to anchor away from shore and small skiffs would bring people back and forth.
These two are drawn to each other because of their childhood. They both have secrets and neither one is sure of their feelings for each other. This story has a few twists and is written in a way that you think you know what’s happening or going to happen, but then you are surprised by what really happens. The ending of the book, from around chapter 44 on, I was so surprised by the twists of the story.
I had a hard time starting this book because it is so full of information and story that it was almost too much to take in, but when I got into it, I hated to put it down. I give this story a 4-star review and recommend it to readers who like to read love stories with suspense and twists that will keep you guessing until the end of the book. Besides, who wouldn’t love the cover of this book?
