What impact would it have when everything suddenly faded to black?

For Mia, a crowded subway ride changes her entire life. Retreating to the wilderness helps her cope with a world that is suddenly too loud, too turbulent. Her existence safely contained to the small cottage on the lake, she is unprepared for the neighbor that moves across the bay.

A career-ending injury has Jared permanently benched. His reputation as The Enforcer won’t survive the unanticipated responsibilities awaiting him. Away from the public eye, he adjusts to his new reality, under the quiet observation of the intriguing hermit on the other side of the water.


waff - my review

After a career ending injury Jared is enjoying a period of freedom as he decides what direction the future will hold. The one thing that he does know is that his life is about to change when his sister Jordy, who is pregnant and alone, moves in with him.

Over a decade earlier a devasting experience cost Mia the life she knew. She has moved to a cabin on the water and limits her interactions with other people so having Jared and his sister next door is more difficult than she imagined.

Mia is there when Jared and Jordy need someone the most and not only does it bring Mia and Jared closer, but it brings up the past that she hasn’t been able to face. The obstacles that they both faced and how they dealt with them were real as both the love and healing was not instantaneous but rather developed over time which only made the story that much more fulfilling. I enjoyed the performance by both of these narrators and thought they did a great job at bringing out the personalities of the characters.
