5_Star_Rating_System_5_starsBilled as “women’s fiction” but enjoyable by anyone who appreciates a story about people who struggle with disruptive events in their lives, looking for balance and meaning. Written from the male point of view, Pablo’s life struggles guide him to his own balance in an unexpected place. The setting is obviously one that Theresa, the author, knows well and took me back to my own experiences in that beautiful part of the world on the shores of the Sea of Cortez. She writes in a fluid style that makes for an effortless read, moving the story ahead compelling the reader onward, seeking answers. At the end of this tale we are left at an edge with a view of an exciting vista of possibilities. So, onward to the next book.

5_Star_Rating_System_5_starsI binge-read this book on a very cold Saturday. Didn’t intend to, but when I got to the end of each chapter, I found myself wondering what would happen next. I like the characters—real people making their way through life’s unexpected turns. The writing has enough detail to be interesting without getting lost in itself, and I’m hoping the author will soon be writing a novella about Mark!author paints beautiful vistas with her words that left me dreaming of a beach holiday. I appreciated her thoughtful observations about life, love and living with loss. The characters are quirky and interesting, with plenty of dry humour sprinkled among the pages. I enjoyed this novel very much and I look forward to reading more from this author.
