Book description: "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 review: Meg Mosely has outdone herself with this novel! I couldn't read the book fast enough to find out what was going to happen next. The characters, setting, and plot all worked together in an amazing way to create a wonderfully intriguing tale. This is a book full of mystery and love. The mystery was not easily solved, at least for me. The romance was certainly predictable but well-written. This is a novel that I recommend to anyone looking for a good fiction book. I enjoyed it immensely. I received a complimentary e-copy of this book from Waterbrook/Multnomah Press in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
