AT THE SCENT OF WATER by Linda Nichols, 2004. Here’s my version of the book blurb:
This is the story of Samuel Truelove, a gifted heart surgeon, who married Annie the love of his life, and they had a beautiful daughter. One day Samuel was asked to perform emergency surgery that sent a deadly cascade of events in motion and their picture perfect life started to unravel.
Broken hearted Annie Truelove leaves her beloved home in the mountains of North Carolina, hoping to escape her grief. She moves to far away Seattle to start over. Not that she’s any happier with her memories which of course still haunt her everyday. Then she is offered a job with The Los Angels Times, where she hopes a better life awaits her, but a disturbing headline interrupts her plans and takes her back home to her husband, where the past coming flooding back to her.
Here’s the teaser:
“He remembered the foolish hope that had carried him through the first year. She had been traumatized, he told himself. She just needed time to recover from the events that had torn both of their hearts to pieces.”
I’ll have to let you know what I think later!
NOTE: Here I am on page 94 and I can’t seem to get into the book, there’s to many religious overtones..and Biblical quotes. If you are a true Christian and go to church every week, or even one who doesn’t, you may love this book.
