Read an Excerpt:
Lake Tranquil was vast. So much so that Patience couldn’t see where it ended or began. Despite its size, it was deserted. She was the only human in sight and she loved the thought of being so alone, immersed in the beauty of nature. An occasional bird flitted in and out of the trees, or swooped down to land at the water’s edge. In the distance, a rabbit ran through the trees, its tail bobbed, flashing white as it ran for cover.
Trees lined craggy mountains that surrounded the lake. They were thick, green and tall, and reached to the shoreline; only a small wavering line of pebble-covered beach sat between the shimmering waters and the forest.
It was heavenly.
It wasn’t the first time Patience had been to Lake Tranquil. Once, as a child, she had visited it with her mother and enjoyed a week of blissful freedom away from the chaos of life. Now here, fleeting memories flooded back. Swimming in the lake as her mother sat on the deck and read. Running through the trees playing hide and seek, and sitting on the shore as the sun set. Watching the stars appear overhead as her mother cooked fish over a smoky fire. It was a time in her life that stuck in her mind, when her mother had been truly happy and content.
It was why Patience was here.
For her mother. To try to be closer to her, to try to understand her. To try to find some peace.
