Anna Bertram was not prepared for this. Not after all she had been through. A mothers love, so deep; wasn’t it her job to protect? Anna had poured her heart and soul into raising Justin. When he unexpectedly dropped out of her life, she was left devastated.
Was it fate?
A chance meeting with a young soldier on a beach in Maine, who had left a pocket-sized book in the sand, a photograph tucked neatly inside. The photograph portrayed two soldiers in Army fatigues, one being the soldier, the other her son Justin. With this clue, Anna is desperate to find the soldier who could possibly lead to her estranged son. Is it too late to reclaim the close relationship they once shared?
Mistakenly Anna believed she was responsible for her sons future. In her zealous search to reunite, she finds the unexpected, love and forgiveness. Journey with Anna, as she learns to let go and surrender to divine destiny. And give thanks for the gift that she was entrusted.
Anna breathed the salty air and let it fully fill her lungs. The gentle misty breeze tickled her cheeks and wrapped her golden curls about her face. Since Anna had been a child, this was her escape place, the place that would summon peace and surround like a warm hug. It was the only place she could live in the exact minute; take everything around her in, the closest thing to heaven on earth. Anna was glad she had made the trip to experience this moment. She could almost hear her own childlike giggle as pictures formed in her mind. She remembered her older sister, Holly, jumping the rocks, the wind whipping her dark mass of curls, being careful not to fall in the tide pools that lingered between the sharp rocks. Holly’s tender olive eyes had twinkled as she reached out her hand for Anna’s grasp. Anna smiled as she reflected on the moment.
She could almost feel Holly with her again. The memory quickly faded as the tide receded from shore and pulled the stones along with it.
Anna watched as a large wave pounced and sprayed the children playing in the rocks below and heard their squeals of delight.
She saw him again. “It really could be Justin.” Every young man who looked like a recent high school graduate could be her son. His absence from her life was an endless ache within her. She tried to make sense of it. Why he hadn’t contacted her. They had been so close. Pregnant at nineteen, Anna was proud to have raised such a fine young man. Strangely, he had walked out of her life as easily as he’d come into it. It was as if he came to her, altered her inside out, then left her dazed and confused. Their last conversation replayed over and over as she searched for clues to why he wanted out of her life. She had given so much of herself to him, that when he walked away he took a part of her.
