FROM THE DEPTHS
Ten years after a terrible accident steals her happiness, Fiona Moran has a life as shabby and rundown as the little lighthouse she maintains on the isle of Inisheer—and only fury in her heart for the fabled gods of Ireland. Little does she know, all that is about to change. Backlit by the pouring rain, a handsome stranger appears on her doorstep, and unlike the fearsome deity tasked with sailing drowned souls to their final resting place, this handsome behemoth with a boyish grin is intent upon raising her back to the heights of happiness. He alone can make this offer of bliss. She alone can choose it.
Ok, this is my first review in a long time, so please bear with me!!
This book had me from the first moment. It starts out heartbreaking, as Finoa loses her husband Conner in a boating accident.
Ten years pass and she's living a half life. She misses Conner desperately, and has decided she will never love again. One stormy night there is a knock on her door, and Lir enters her life unexpectedly.
She's not expecting anything, but he offers her help to fix up the lighthouse and the house, as things have fallen into disrepair. She's only one person, and her grief has taken up most of her attention. As she keeps spending more and more time with Lir, she realizes just how wasteful her life has been. He starts to open up feelings in her she thought were long dead.
But, Lir has a secret, and he's afraid of what she will think once she knows the truth.
This book had me right from the start. I could not stop reading it, and didn't want it to end! It was a quick read for me, which I loved and hated... as I wanted to read more with them!! You do feel for Fiona, as she's dealing with the loss of her husband, and is just a shell of herself when Lir comes into her life. It's beautiful to see her come to life again!!
Deena spends her time playing in the Garden of Good and Evil as she writes fantasy, paranormal romance, and suspense. She’s been known to have downed a few beers with her angels, and even put Satan in his place a time or two. She’s fascinated with the concept of immortality and all its implications. Gilbert, Arizona, near her beloved Superstition Mountains, is where she and her family call home.
“Crazy?” Fiona huffed her way into the kitchen with the barely emptied coffee mug and dumped it in the sink. “Why? Is it wrong to love my husband so deeply that my heart shrivels and dies without him around? Is it crazy that all livin’ color has gone gray in my world? I curse the sea fer takin’ ye away from me, Connor, because the better half of me drowned along with ye that day.”
She crumpled to the wooden floor and dissolved into a mass of wretched sobs, something she hadn’t done for months. A stranger had intruded on her world, disrupting the numbing effects of a despondency she’d come to rely on to get her through each day. All with a simple, careless comment.
“Oh, Connor!” Weak hands slapped at the floor beneath her. She didn’t know how much more she could take before she walked herself right into the ocean with no thought of coming back.
Pounding on her door accentuated her desperate thoughts, and a muffled voice seeped through the cracks.
“Mrs. Moran, I’ve come back to apologize. I’m so sorry. For everythin’. Please open the door so I can tell ye so to yer face. I can’t leave without makin’ things right between us.”
