He sensed the presence standing directly beside him in the dark. Tess was weaving back and forth, her features intermittently visible in the moonlight that had begun to gleam through the window. Her expression was dazed, yet more conscious than a sleepwalker’s.
"A village on the coast of Maine holds painful secrets—the kind only the miracle of new love can heal." SNOW FENCE ROAD by Phyllis Edgerly Ring
Tess Johansen returns to a small town on the coast of Maine after the devastating death of her fiance'. She uses the money he left for her to invest in the Spinnaker Inn, becoming a co-owner with her good friend, Claire, who keeps a watchful eye over the young woman. Tess throws herself in the daily running of the inn where she works herself into exhaustion hoping the hard work will ease her pain and guilt.
Tess runs into Evan Marston, who is harboring his own guilty secrets. As SNOW FENCE ROAD unfolds, we find that their secrets aren't the only secrets in this little coastal town, and Tess unknowingly sets the change in motion for all.
I enjoyed the author's descriptions of life at the inn and Maine has also been on my list of places to visit. SNOW FENCE ROAD has brought that to-do to the top of my list. Phyllis Ring did a wonderful job depicting life in the small town with her descriptions of the houses and stores and landscapes.
There were a number of grammatical errors and at times, I found the story a little cryptic, as though I had been dropped into the middle of conversations. SNOW FENCE ROAD was fast-paced and when it slowed down, I found myself enjoying it. I liked Tess and Evan and throughout the book rooted for them, hoping for their healing and love to take place.
I did enjoy the book, despite the grammatical errors and cryptic conversations, which I think may be the author's writing style. I am giving the book 4 stars.
