My life was adrift...
Until I found her.
Broken and bruised from an accident that nearly took my life, Cora was the nurse who cared for me. She not only tended to my wounds, but for a brief time, she healed my heart as well.
But, our lives were destined to take different paths and I never thought I’d see her again.
Three years later when she moves into my small town, I can’t help but wonder if the universe is trying to tell me something.
Cora is seeking a new beginning. For years, I’ve been wandering the streets of this town, searching for something too.
Maybe she’s the answer to my prayers.
Another heart breaking story!
Dean was on the ferry that fateful day it exploded ... he survived, but his right arm isn't the only thing he lost. When he was in the hospital recovering he developed a crush on his nurse only to find out that she was already married. For the next three years, Dean just existed. Then one day he went to the clinic on the island where he lived ... only to come face to face with the nurse he hasn't forgotten. Cora has finally escaped the abusive marriage she was trying to hide from her friends and family. She remembered the island that a patient talked so fondly about ... and she remembered the patient!. She takes a job at the small clinic on the island so she can get away from her ex and his family. When she comes face to face with Dean, she can no longer deny the sparks that she feels when he's around.
Both Dean and Cora are badly broken and my heart just broke for them. I couldn't help but root for them to overcome their fears so that they could have a happily-ever-after. Dean was afraid to go back on the water and Cora was afraid to trust her own judgement on picking the right guy. I love books with kids in them ... and I just loved Lizzie ... what a cutie! She made me laugh ... she is this 5 year old genius who would spout off all kinds of facts that she read in a book or on the internet ... when most kids her age were just learning how to read. This is a great series and shouldn't be missed!
