Welcome to a place where broken hearts come to heal–and where every lost soul will find a home.

When Ella’s sister decides to reunite with their estranged mother, Ella goes along for the ride—it’s always been the two Preston girls against the world. But Sanctuary Island, a tiny refuge for wild horses tucked off the Atlantic coast, is more inviting than she ever imagined. And it holds more than one last opportunity to repair their broken family—if Ella can open her carefully guarded heart, there is also the chance for new beginnings.


Grady Wilkes is a handyman who can fix anything…except the scars of his own past. When he accepts the task of showing Ella the simple beauties of the island that healed him, he discovers a deep sense of comfort he thought he’d lost. But now he must convince the woman who never intended to stay that on Sanctuary Island, anything is possible—forgiving past mistakes, rediscovering the simple joys of life, and maybe even falling in love.

My Thoughts

Everybody seemed to feel everything so very deeply at all times.  Ella has her back up as well as Grady which made it difficult to get to know any of the characters well enough to care about them.  Though it was a relatively sweet story, I just wasn’t invested in their future.  This book wasn’t by any means terrible, but it lacked any kind of pizzazz.
