It took April's world crumbling to make her realize just how very out of touch she really was. Abandoned morals, loss of her brother, left her fiancee at the alter... all that is raw in her face personified by her family's once pristine Summer home that has fell into dilapidation. What exactly is she really looking for...will she be rescued?
I have to honestly say Kathleen Shoop managed to stuff an incredible amount of depth and feeling into this short story. I fell deeply in love with this story & the characters. Shoop brought April and Hale to life in real and amazing detail. She takes you on an emotional ride, and you find yourself lost in the story. My only regret is that the story was so short, I would love to read more.. perhaps a sequel?
