Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life - steady boyfriend, close family - who has never been farther afield than her tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex-Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life - big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel - and now he's pretty sure he cannot live the way he is. Will is acerbic, moody, bossy - but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected.

I enjoyed the romantic struggle between Lou and Will and Lou's determination to fulfill a promise that she made to herself and to the contract. I thought the conflict Lou had with her family in the end was a little surprising in light of the love of a mother to child.
I would recommend this book to any suppressed romantic who wants to rekindle a love back into their life.

Folly Beach, South Carolina, has survived despite hurricanes and war. But it's the personal battles of Folly Beach's residents that have left the most scars, and they are why a young widow has been beckoned there to heal her own. To most people, Folly Beach is simply the last barrier island before reaching the great Atlantic. To some, it's a sanctuary for lost souls, which is why Emmy Hamilton's mother encourages her to buy a local bookstore, Folly's Finds, hoping it will distract Emmy from the loss of her husband.

This was one of the most interesting novels I can remember listening to. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the performance of the Narrator, Lyssa Browne ofter brought tears to my eyes. I would ofter find myself thinking about the book through my day and eagerly wanting to get back to listening again. I enjoyed this book as i did Karen White's other novel, The Sound of Broken Glass.
