A middle-aged woman looks back at her time in the past: married, trapped in a loveless marriage while she compensates for her loneliness with food. Suddenly Anne finds herself attracted to a new workmate, David, who shows her the kind of affection she has not received from her husband since they were married. When a life-threatening altercation between Anne and her husband Joe happens, she leaves and eventually finds herself divorced. Later, she is married yet again, but still holds David’s memory dearly. The marriage, however, is not as she dreamed it would be, and leaves it too, just as much as she has let go of the hope of finding David. She is shocked, however, when she stumbles upon him again – the man she realizes she was wrong to let go of when she pieces together the whole story at a time when she thinks anything is too late.

"Water’s End: A Love Revisited" is your typical romance novel, but written with a truthfulness that many women may have experienced at one time or another. More importantly, it offers its readers the lesson that even in the bleakness of situations there is hope to be found, that love lost is not always lost forever. Even as Anne pushes through life and reacts to the happenings she encounters, she holds on to a piece of hope which allows her to persevere through her inner struggles. Graceful in its own way with a femininity that readers can easily relate to, it is a story worth keeping and sharing. Jessica Deforest writes with a certain amount of sincerity that is quite endearing to the readers. I love the way she chooses her words and her descriptive style is poetic. This is a novel that will warm the hearts of those who have loved, lost, and loved again.
