Synopsis can be found here.
Sweet and sad. Lucie Walker wakes up wading in the San Francisco Bay, with no memory, no ID and no cell phone. She has been missing for days, and cannot remember her whereabouts. Her fiance comes to collect her, a stranger she doesn't remember. And there begins a journey of finding who she is, who she was and who she wants to be.
Beautifully written, I love this story. The writing flows elegantly, opening the heart sometimes and slowly breaking it other times. Lucie is torn, her struggles real and sad between being the person everyone expects her t be and the person she feels like she truly is. Grady is a beautiful character filled with insecurities, love and confusion. Really, the characters made this book for me. They leap off the page with love, warmth and struggle.
As Lucie uncovers her past, meets new friends and tries to reform a relationship with Grady, Grady does everything he can to remember that his old Lucie is gone and that there is a new Lucie in front of him. Who is she? And who can they be to each other?
I really enjoyed this beautiful story about identity, loss and memory. And how love weaves its way through it all.
