Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for my review. The following post contains advertisement

The nightmares of her past have found Ana Kavanogh an ocean away.
Ana Kavanogh's memories of Ireland are mostly of fire and pain. As a girl she survived a blaze that left her an orphan, scarred and angry at God. Now in New York Ana find a kindred spirit in Eoghan Hamilton, who's struggling with his own anger. His twin sister, Cara, betrayed him by falling in love with his enemy. Both of their lives in danger,
Eoghan must choose which road to follow - bitterness or forgiveness - and where to place his trust.

What did I think?
This is book #2 in the series. I think it is a stand alone, but you will certainly glean more if you have read book #1. Read my review of  Book #1 No Safe Harbor.  That said, I enjoyed this book even more than the first one! Ana and Eoghan have both suffered deep hurt and confusion about circumstances in their past. Ana was young when she tried and failed to rescue her mom and sister in a house fire. She still suffers the nightmares but was it an accident? Eoghan was doing what he thought was right, when a man was murdered. He has been on the run, was betrayed by his sister, and is still not sure what actually happened that night. Both are angry with God. But God has not forgotten them, He has a plan - put to action in this book. Will they learn to trust him, let go of their anger and find forgiveness for the past?  Along with the characters in the book, you get a bit of a history lesson about this time period. This book is interesting and you will not want to put it down. Elizabeth's writing, keeps you on the edge of  your seat and turning pages til the end. I would certainly recommend this series.  

Be on the lookout for book #3 Tide and Tempest coming March 2014!

I can't wait!!
