WAITING FOR SUNRISE
Sometimes finding your future means making peace with your past
Patsy Milstrap wishes she could leave her past behind. Though she tries to put on a brave front for the sake of her family, the wounds still ache, and the scars on her soul are still deeply felt. At her concerned husband's gentle insistence, they take a vacation from South Carolina on Cedar Key, an idyllic island on Florida's Gulf Coast. A week in paradise will do them good, he says.
When a familiar--and most unexpected--face greets her at a seaside restaurant, Patsy knows she can no longer run from the past. But what will opening old wounds mean? And what will the future hold?
With a large helping of Southern charm, Waiting for Sunrise is a touching story of family, young love, and the need for forgiveness. Eva Marie Everson expertly draws out the bittersweet moments of life, weaving them into a tale that will envelop your soul.
A compelling story that draws the reader in without apologies for the complexities of life. Real, hard-hitting, emotional -- Everson knows how to draw on a myriad of truths, not all of them pretty, in order to offer up joy and hope. A reminder of how each individual is the result of their own 'back story' -- all the good and the bad, the realities and the misconceptions that swirl together and merge into our psyche. Waiting for Sunrise is also about unconditional love -- in all it's varied forms. A gut-wrenching yet oddly comforting read that has firmed my resolve to be gentler and more understanding to those around me.
