Back Cover Blurb:
Haunted by painful memories, pediatric surgeon Sage Anderson gives up medicine and moves to Eternity Springs. There she finds a place to call home, but even her newfound success as a gifted artist isn’t enough to keep her nightmares at bay. Colt Rafferty is about to change all that.
Eternity Springs is a refuge for Colt, a place to ground himself when the stress of investigating tragedies takes its toll. He has come here for a little R & R, but instead of relaxing, he finds himself fascinated by the mysterious redhead whose secrets beg to be discovered—a beauty running from her past, a heartsick woman in desperate need of the sweet sanctuary of a devoted man’s embrace. And he is just the man to show her the true path to peace—by offering her the healing power of love.
The main characters were a bit of a conundrum. Colt kept pushing Sage for more, yet Sage refused to tell him why it wasn't possible for her. I appreciated both of their tenacities and understood where both were coming from. The fact that they were both so genuine, if a bit unwilling to share all their secrets all at once was so real. And I really enjoyed how we get to know more about so many of the characters in this town. Sage’s friends are priceless. They are the epitome of small town women with a twist. I love Celeste’s angel in disguise feel.
This was certainly a warm and restorative novel, with some rather emotional moments that brought me to tears. I love how March kept me engaged throughout with this complexly real story where she delves deep into the world of survivors and those around them.
