My Review ~ 5 Stars
This is not a typical love story. It’s a story of finding your own way, discovering truths, and the journey we lead when fate deals us a path less traveled. There are revelations, obsessions, and the path of innocence. There is heartbreak and grittiness. Yet – it’s the love that shines through. Not just any love….but one for the ages.
Life in Acadia was far from ordinary. This sheltered community has shunned modern conveniences of the world. Focusing on preparing for the upcoming flood that would lead the residents into a world of eternal life. Members of Acadia follow the teachings of their prophet – Hector. While families struggle to live from the land, Hector lives his life with all that modern technology has to offer.
Calder and his family live in the Acadian community. Each family works hard to grow what they need from the land. They are taught that all of their hard work will pay off when they reach Elysium. This is the only life Calder has ever known. While preparing for the great flood, the community was introduced to Eden. This young girl was introduced as the key to their salvation in paradise. She would one day become their ‘mother’ and Hector’s wife….at the age of eighteen.
Despite their predestined lives, Calder and Eden began to seek out the other. Both sharing some of the pleasures of childhood together. Day by day their connection grew stronger. Each day the countdown towards their destiny inched closer. Choices will be made….decisions to follow their hearts or live the life that is playing out before them. One thing is certain….whatever the choice, Calder and Eden will make their choice together.
Wow!! What an emotional story. Calder and Eden have everything working against them. The isolation of their lives strengthens the bond they share. Their story is a journey of trust, hardship, and uncertainty. A story that grabs your heart and squeezes tight.
This story is unique…one you must read to discover the depth of love. A journey that will leave you reeling from the intensity. A story that will leave you understanding the beauty of something simple… Morning Glory.
