Book Blurb: 
The sounds of unexpected tragedies—a roll of thunder, the crash of metal on metal—leave Miranda in shock amid the ruins of her broken family.

As she searches for new meaning in her life, Miranda finds quiet refuge with her family’s handyman, Dix, in his cabin in the dark forests of the Adirondack Mountains. Dix is kind, dependable, and good with an ax—the right man to help the sheltered Miranda heal—but ultimately, her sadness creates a void even he can’t fill.

When a man from her distant past turns up, the handsome idealist now known as Darius, he offers Miranda a chance to do meaningful work at The Source, a secluded property filled with his nature worshipers. Miranda feels this charismatic guru is the key to remaking her life, but her grief and desire for love also create an opportunity for his deception. And in her desperate quest to find herself after losing almost everything, Miranda and Dix could pay a higher price than they ever imagined.

Review: There are some books that leave me befuddled. This was one of them. It is a short read, only 256 pages. There were a few times when I thought I wasn't going to finish it, but I did, and for that I feel proud of myself.

I wish I could bring to words my feelings about this book, but it simply didn't do anything for me, but I'm one of those people that won't leave a book unfinished.

Rating: 3 flowers
