An actress running from her past finds escape with a man hiding from his future.
When someone wants to be lost, a home tucked among the 10,000 Islands off the Florida coast is a good place to live. A couple of decent boats, and a deep knowledge of fishing and a man can get by without ever having to talk to another soul. It's a nice enough existence, until the one person who ties him to the world of the living, the reason he's still among them even if only on the fringes, asks him for help.
Father Steady Capri knows quite a bit about helping others. But he is afraid Katie Quinn's problems may be beyond his abilities. Katie is a world-famous actress with an all-too-familiar story. Fame seems to have driven her to self-destruct. Steady knows the true cause of her desire to end her life is buried too deeply for him to reach. But there is one person who still may be able to save her from herself.
He will show her an alternate escape, a way to write a new life. But Katie still must confront her past before she can find peace. Ultimately, he will need to leave his secluded home and sacrifice the serenity he's found to help her. From the Florida coast, they will travel to the French countryside where they will discover the unwritten story of both their pasts and their future.

I cannot compare this book to any other I have read, as this book touched me in a way that no other ever has.
Kevin Stillwell did a fantastic job performing this book and would very much like to hear other books performed by him.
The entire last half of this book, when secrets begin to be revealed and self discovery and healing begins, is so moving and the ending is heart wrenching.
This is the second book written by Charles Martin that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed the first, Catching Fireflies. Now that I have read and totally loved this newest book, I plan to read everything he has written.
