Amazon AudibleBLURB: Sara Hawthorne is a dedicated attorney, a loyal wife, and the mother of two nineteen-year-old girls. When her husband succumbs to cancer, Sara has to battle the grief and also the addiction to which one of her daughters falls prey. Maximus Tempest is business driven—and family starved. Eager to get his estranged wife to sign the divorce papers so he can move on with his life, he is frustrated when she is taken to the hospital after overdosing and wants no part of her treatment. When Sara and Max see each other after twenty years, old feelings spring to life, but with the whirlwind of problems that surround them, how could it possibly work? Secrets are revealed from the grave that could threaten any future they might have, and it will be up to Sara and Max to see if they can overcome the lies—or if they must bury their dreams of a relationship forever. REVIEW: I really enjoyed this story Ana the theme of beginning and loving again. This book deals with strong themes like addiction, divorce, and death, but the story doesn’t feel depressing or negative. Stacy Easton does a great job of making the reader an emotionally active participant in the story. I could feel Sara and Max’s pains and struggles and their joy and excitement. The connection with the story and characters helped see me through the difficult subject matter and had me rooting for everyone to get their happily ever after. Narration is such an important part of an audiobook and I think, for me, this one fell a bit short. Chris Chamberlain and Marie Rose do a good job voicing the main characters and have quite a great chemistry going with their duet narration. Sadly, when it comes to the secondary characters they kind of lost me. In an effort to make everyone sound distinct some of the characters are given accents that have nothing to do with the story. One example is one of Sara’s daughters; she sounded like a poor imitation of a Southern California valley girl. It was distracting and pulled me out of the story a bit. Still, overall the narration was good and the story was great. Four stars.
