Dane lives for the salty breeze and a sweet wave, because that’s all he has. He’s been on the streets since he was fourteen. A drifter. Homeless. Then he meets Amy. Smart and accomplished, she’s everything he’s not. He wants to be the sort of man who deserves her.
Except that means facing down his past—and that past might very well swallow them both.
How to Say Goodbye was a very good read. The story flowed nicely and the characters were real enough to touch. This author pulled me into the book to the point I felt the rain on my face and smelled the ocean on the breeze. If you are looking for a weekend getaway, I recommend getting How to Say Goodbye.
Amy grew up in sort of a dysfunctional family. She has never been touched and doesn't really know how to touch, how to respond to touch. She excels at school and works hard on her internship.
Dane is living his life day to day, not looking for a relationship but then he meets Amy. There is something about her that draws him in. He sees something in her that he recognizes, something that he sees in himself.
I would recommend this book for the mature audience.
