Publisher's summary

From New York Times bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin comes a heartfelt story about overcoming great loss and forgiving past sins to find happiness again.

Brooklyn Hewett hasn't set foot in Cape Harbor for fifteen years - not since an accident claimed the love of her life, Austin Woods. Desperate to move forward, Brooklyn has focused on raising her daughter for the past fourteen years. But when the opportunity comes along to renovate the old Driftwood Inn, Brooklyn knows it's time to go home.

But it won't be easy. For one, Austin's best friend, Bowie Holmes, still lives in Cape Harbor. Brooklyn hasn't quite been able to forget him: not since the night they spent together - the same night they both lost Austin. Separated by tragedy and guilt, they're brought together by the Driftwood project. And as they rebuild the inn, they discover they're also rebuilding something else.

Brooklyn's always been desperate to move on, not knowing that she first needs to reconcile past transgressions. She can't forget, but she can forgive - Austin, Bowie, and herself - on her way toward long-awaited happiness.

Great story

I loved this Audible, but it was difficult to follow when it was changing from the present to the past and back again. I believe the print edition changes font, but there’s no distinction made in the narration and it’s confusing.

fantastic listen,perfect for the ride to the beach

2/18/21 Holy Crashing Waves!!!! I just listened to the audiobook. I didn't think the book could get better, but the narrator proved me wrong. She was able to bring one of my favorites stories to life in a way I could not each and every time I have read it. Her ability to distinguish between characters was fantastic. I will definitely be listening to it again and again in the near future.

Great read

This book was an enjoyable read. it was a bit predictable, but for those like me who love a "happily ever after" story, this is a good one, and in a beautiful setting. The narrator was great, and I just truly enjoyed this book

good story, but fairly predictable

I pretty much figured it out pretty quickly, but the characters were likable and the story was good.

Contains foul language

They need to put a disclaimer in the description so I don't waste time or money on something I don't want to hear. I let one go in Chapter 6, but by Chapter 10, I was really into the story, but the cussing happened more frequently. That wasn't fair. If I had known ahead of time, I wouldn't have selected it. Can't they make edited versions of these things? I really like the story and I want to know how it ends, but I can't stand reading/listening to foul language. I get enough of it at work.
