There comes a time in life when you realize that neither fame nor wealth will carry the day. It's the moment when all that matters are love and faith.
Stand with Naomi on a lonely beach as she faces her greatest threat and discovers that nothing is more important than her love for Jon.
From the award-winning author of the bestseller, The Distant Shore, comes Book II of the Stone Trilogy: Under the Same Sun.
Jon and Naomi’s marriage is strained as she struggles with the aftermath of her near-fatal shooting after the Oscars, a growing desire for a baby, and the realization that her persistent father will never give up on his plans for the family’s hotel business.
Alone with her fears, she falls right into the trap of a stalker…
Naomi continues to heal from the traumatic shooting that nearly claimed her life, but with her battered body and shattered spirit she struggles to find a reason to go on living. Jon is beside himself with worry and longs to have the vibrant love of his life back. Adding to the stress of their already strained marriage the couple is still trying to put their painful past behind them. Just when it seems they may turn it around and find happiness once and for all, something in one of them snaps and they're back at square one. Naomi's father continues to cause drama with his refusal to accept Jon and his unyielding disappointment in Naomi's disinterest in the family hotel business.
Another fight between Jon and Naomi sends Jon fleeing and pushes Naomi right into the path of her stalker. Now, things are about to get a whole lot worse as Jon and Naomi's lives are turned upside down. Will this horrific experience finally push Naomi over the edge?
Under the Same Sun is even better than the first book. The characters continue to captivate, with Jon and Naomi dominating the lives of all those around them. The addition of the stalker adds suspense and just when you think the stalker may have given up he strikes. I enjoyed the continued travels, especially Jon and Naomi's trip to Italy. The author has a gift for storytelling and through her detailed descriptions I felt as though I was experiencing the world right along with the characters. As with the first story, Under the Same Sun is emotionally charged and completely absorbing.
I highly recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
