Publisher Description

From the bestselling author of Pay It Forward comes a provocative and unlikely love story that starts on a New York subway car and blossoms under the windmills of the Mojave Desert.Both Sebastian and Maria live in worlds ruled by fear. Sebastian, a lonely seventeen-year-old, is suffocating under his dominant father's control; Maria, a young mother of two, is trying to keep peace at home despite her boyfriend's abuse. When their eyes meet across a subway car one night, these two strangers find a connection that neither can explain or ignore. They dream of a new future and agree to run away together, only to find that each has kept a major secret from the other. In this tremendously moving novel, Catherine Ryan Hyde shows us how two people trapped by life's circumstances can break free and find a place in the world where love is genuine and selfless.

Becky sings praise ,

Outstanding. Completely engrossing.

I always enjoy this author. And this book did not disappoint. I felt like the characters were trusting me to tell their story to me. Like I was their best friend. I could not put the book down. And when I did, I couldn't stop thinking about it and planning when I could get back to reading it. It's that good!

Chasing Windmills

I really enjoyed this story. It was quite a journey and very well written. The characters are very believable and their personal stories as well as their relationships really drew me in. It was a very interesting read and it kept calling me back so that I finished it in just a few days. I would highly recommend this story. It made me feel, it made me think and the ending was a real surprise. It makes me want to read more from this author and I hope soon to find more of her books here on Apple iBooks.
