This story swept me away with its quaint town on Lake Michigan. The characters had depth and were relatable. I could feel the tension and fearfulness that Adeleigh had as she tried to run and hide from danger and heartbreak. David was a well-crafted hero, taking care of his grandma and siblings and smart enough to see people for who they really were.
The book was full of mystery, danger and an intriguing premise that we sometimes confide in near strangers when that is easier and less intimidating than telling our secrets to those we hold dear.
The author effortlessly pulls together facts about fishing and small towns and put me right in the middle of the action, all the while giving a solid spiritual message with characters who live out their faith.
An absorbing story by a talented author. I look forward to her next book with anticipation.
