What if one morning you look in the mirror and no longer recognize the person looking back?
When Leelo can no longer identify herself by the roles that once defined her, it’s both terrifying and liberating. Oh, she feels the loss, the grief, and then the anger, but when she inherits property up north, she jumps at the promise of freedom and independence.
Yet not everyone in her new community is what they seem, starting with the surly mountain man down the road.
As owner of the local fishing lodge, Roar is content with his everyday life. And the older he gets, the less he appreciates change. So when a blue-haired, tattooed ‘city girl’ moves into the old motel, shaking up his daily routine, he’s none too pleased.
Still, something about the woman’s easy smile and almost reckless grit has him step up as her keeper.
As Freya says, it’s amazing how beautiful things are when you occasionally risk a change of view.
Leelo had my heart from the first few chapters as she forged ahead to make a change in her life. She was 46, divorced, lonely and needed to repair her inner self belief. As all women know we are our greatest critics both physically and mentally.
Roar was strong, masculine but he was also sensitive and I loved watching him make Leelo sensual again. His group of friends and famiy provided lighthearted moments in this story, his mother Charlie a standout for me.
My favourite component of this story was watching how her relationship with her adult children evolved. Her son Matt visiting, helping her and making his own life. The relationship with her daughter brought tears to my eyes.
Surprising me was the suspense and mystery towards the end of this story with the constant danger placed in Leelo’s way, I had no clue to the turn of events so that was a great twist.
The Epilogue I loved and when the jar was opened well my heart swelled and tears were in my eyes.
Quote: She’s my fantasy, my fortune, my fate and my future.
