Posted by brriske
Being someone’s first love is unforgettable. Being their last is immeasurable.
Claire Peters should be on top of the world. She owns the radio waves and has a budding movie career. But her heart longs to be rooted. Ten years ago, she fled Martha’s Vineyard to pursue her dream and to make something of herself. But there’s still a void. After a decade of running, she returns to the island hoping to find her happiness with the man she’s loved all her life.
When a tragic event shatters Dr. Forrest Desvareaux’ well-balance world, the Vineyard’s hometown good guy discovers everything in his life is based on lies. Angry and betrayed, he turns to Claire – the one woman who has indelibly marked him.
Is it possible to run back to the person who broke you? Forever linked, Forrest and Claire are an unending continuum. But she’s a wildflower and Forrest’s roots run deep on the Vineyard. Can they accept home is not a place but a feeling?
There are few stronger memories than that of your first love, especially when it’s been your only love and you’ve never moved passed it. The young love between Forrest and Claire doesn’t end the way they both envisioned and it’s been an excruciating 10 years since. When Claire returns after tragedy strike Forrest’s life, he has a hard time moving past the hurt that her leaving caused. When she finally shares why she left, he starts to move on, but now he has many other stressors he would never have imagined. I really enjoyed this book and although I haven’t read the others in this series, I didn’t feel like I was a missing plot. And it actually makes me want to go find the others. I felt that all main and supporting characters were fully developed, interesting and believable. I rate this story 5 Stars.
