An actress running from her past finds escape with a man hiding from his future.
When someone wants to be lost, a home tucked among the Ten Thousand Islands off the Florida coast is a good place to live. A couple decent boats, and a deep knowledge of fishing and a man can get by without ever having to talk to another soul. It's a nice enough existence, until the one person who ties him to the world of the living, the reason he's still among them even if only on the fringes, asks him for help.
Father Steady Capri knows quite a bit about helping others. But he is afraid Katie Quinn's problems may be beyond his abilities. Katie is a world-famous actress with an all too familiar story. Fame seems to have driven her to self-destruct. Steady knows the true cause of her desire to end her life is buried too deeply for him to reach. But there is one person who still may be able to save her from herself.
He will show her an alternate escape, a way to write a new life. But Katie still must confront her past before she can find peace. Ultimately, he will need to leave his secluded home and sacrifice the serenity he's found to help her. From the Florida coast, they will travel to the French countryside where they will discover the unwritten story of both their pasts and their future.

This was one of my favorite one of Charles Mattin books. He describes the people and places in a way that make you feel like you're like a fly on the wall, watching the story unfold. His stories are deep and true, with out any fluff. He truly has a gift with the written word. There was only one book I didn't enjoy. Start this one. You'll love it!!

This was an interesting book but wasn't one that I couldn't put down. I was impatient with the characters and their attitudes about their guilt and problems with their lives. I did like the descriptions of their surroundings.***
