The sound of the ocean, the crash of the waves as they kick up against the sand and rocks - these are the only sounds Megan Greene wants to hear. She wants to leave the rest of the world behind and find some peace.
The offer of a private house on the beach, set in a small town in Maine, is perfect. Time to think - to be by herself. It's all she wants. It's the escape she needs. Until she stumbles across the painting that seems to echo her own chaotic mindset. Until she meets the unfriendly artist behind the stormy painting and discovers his secrets.
All Zachary Adams wants is to be left alone. His canvases, and the unending scope of the ocean and sand, are his life. They direct him - fill his hours. Bring him focus. Until she enters his life.
She dredges up memories of the past - the haunting images he has hidden for years, the fears he has never shared. A story he keeps buried below the surface.
Can she make him see what he is missing? Can he trust her enough to believe?

"Such a good story"
I really appreciated that this wasn't your typical love story where two extremely hot people couldn't keep their hands off each other. The love in this novel had depth, reaffirming that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and love and lust are not synonymous.
Another gem from Melanie Moreland!! Heartbreaking and beautiful. The narrators were captivating and did an excellent job portraying the heart of the story!
"A terrific read!"
One of the top 20... before you think that's a high #, I do a LOT of audio book "reading"... maybe 60-70 a year, so that's a good book at #20.
The character development and personalities of both were stellar and totally believable. In books like Melanie's you at times want to slap each character for their skittishness, their jumping to conclusions, and their stubbornness.
both did a fine job.
Twice I was rocked hard: once when the a**hole douche boyfriend of hers caught her up with the press and the her new artist guy... the ambush in town seemed plausible with her wanting to surprise him with new paint/brushes that were special... that was totally plausible. And, Karen's approaching him at the end to tell him what a jerk he'd been. The journals were a lovely touch. Their expressions to each other thru writing were a nice surprise.
