THIS WAS A GREAT READ ABOUT THE DIFFERENT WAYS PEOPLE STRUGGLE WITH WHAT LIFE CASTS THEIR WAY. SOME RUN, SOME BECOME MORE INTROVERTED, SOME MOVE ON SEEMINGLY UNSCATHED AND SOME CHOOSE DARKER PATHS. NOBODY’S LIFE IS PERFECT AND THIS CAST OF CHARACTERS THROWN TOGETHER BY THEIR LIFE CHOICES IS RESILIENT. A BEAUTIFULLY WOVEN TALE ABOUT OVERCOMING ALL ODDS.
Ben and Caroline barely recognize each other any more. Their once solid relationship now broken and beaten by unfathomable events, leaving only a shell of past promise. When pressure cracks the last vestiges of their bond, Ben hastily leaves their Southern California home, pointing the car east to what he hopes is the edge of the Earth. After driving until he can no further, he settles in the small, coastal town of Swintonport, Maine to lose himself in quiet and anonymity, renting the quaint guesthouse of Maggie and her ten-year-old daughter, Smoof. But when tragedy strikes his landlord’s family, Ben is confronted with a sobering truth reminiscent of the one he left behind.
