What if the pain of the past revealed an unknown sacrifice that changes everything?
When teacher Laura Gantt comes home to Prospect, Georgia to settle her recently-deceased mother’s household, the last thing she expects to encounter is a swirl of rumors about the father she lost to the lake twelve years ago—that he has reportedly been seen around town. Elliott Gantt’s body was never found and he was presumed dead.
Reeling from the sharp loss of a parent, Laura must now grapple with painful memories surrounding her father’s disappearance and the sense of abandonment she experienced after his death. Life-long friend and former beau Sean Halloran wants nothing more than to protect Laura from the far-fetched stories of Elliott’s resurrection and to care for her, but he has his own reasons, troubling echoes from his childhood, to put Elliott’s disappearance to rest.
Working together, Laura and Sean begin to uncover the truth, one mired in the wooded peaks and deep waters of the Blue Ridge Mountains surrounding Prospect. Can they fathom how many secrets the steep hills hold? With surprising facts revealed, will Laura be able to understand the sacrificial choices made that forever changed her life? And can love and a peace with God be rekindled in her heart after so much time has passed?
My Take On This Book:
This is the second book that I have read by Meg Moseley, and I loved it. It is a wonderful romance/mystery that kept me reading until the end, I will definitely be watching for more books to be released by Meg. It shows us how past events can cast long shadows and can greatly affect a person's present. When her mom suddenly dies at a young age, Laura returns to Georgia to go through all her parents belongings.
With her mother's passing, rumors have surfaced of people seeing her father, who had supposedly drowned 12 years before. As Laura, and Sean set out to find answers to the mysteries surrounding Laura's family. Which everything about their lives seems to be a big mystery until the final pages of the book where all of the past issues will come to light. You will not want to miss reading this book by Meg, I recommend this to anyone who loves a great mystery/romance book.
I received a free copy of this book for review from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, for my honest unbiased opinion.
