Left for dead in the fields of rural Oregon, a young woman defies all odds and survives—but she awakens with no idea who she is, or what happened to her. Refusing to answer to “Jane Doe” for another day, the woman renames herself “Water” for the tiny, hidden marking on her body—the only clue to her past. Taken in by old Ginny Fitzgerald, a crotchety but kind lady living on a nearby horse farm, Water slowly begins building a new life. But as she attempts to piece together the fleeting slivers of her memory, more questions emerge: Who is the next-door neighbor, quietly toiling under the hood of his Barracuda? Why won’t Ginny let him step foot on her property? And why does Water feel she recognizes him?
Twenty-four-year-old Jesse Welles doesn’t know how long it will be before Water gets her memory back. For her sake, Jesse hopes the answer is never. He knows that she’ll stay so much safer—and happier—that way. And that’s why, as hard as it is, he needs to keep his distance. Because getting too close could flood her with realities better left buried.
The trouble is, water always seems to find its way to the surface.
Wow, this story was extremely good, the plot is very good, and a total roller coaster of emotion, and inspiring story of survival and fate.
This is the tory about Water and Jesse. Water wakes in a hospital with amnesia and she have no idea who she is and how she ended in the hospital. With the help with the doctor whom she build a trusting relationship.
Jesse in the son of Water’s doctor and he is a bad boy, makes bad mistakes in the past. And off course he fell for Water. But he have his secrets about Water.
Water feel very connected with Jesse, like she meet him before. But she doesn’t know why. And both are thrown into a world they can't control and how they fight this attraction that is so strong.
I adored this woman, and her backstory was fascinating. She made me laugh aloud and had me hugging myself tight as I thought about her past.
Of course this audiobook and this love story about Jesse and Water/ Alex keep me completely interested and can´t stop listening. And the best, is a dual pov and rotates between the past and present.
Jesse tell his pov of the past and Water being in the present. So this is a story filled with hope, perseverance and love. I love how the character draw you in and captivated until the last word.
I really recommend this audiobook and this author, I love how she bring an intense, and intriguing tale of what one might do if given the chance to do it all over again.
I love the narrators they did a super job, you feel the intense and pain and of course the love. And really love Jesse.
