Will the secrets be told?

How would you feel if the wonderful guy you're about to marry suddenly ups and dies just a week before your wedding day? Then you'll know precisely how Anna felt when her fiancé, Murray, had died. Unfortunately since that tragic day, on a daily basis, she would receive an onslaught of condolences, gazing looks of sympathy, etc. from both friends and strangers alike.

Eventually Anna had taken all she could bear and decides to ditch her current environment and move to the cottage she's inherited from her fiancé and his family in Regina Beach.

As a child of the 1950's, I can remember those autograph books we used to use when we graduated junior high school [9th grade at the school I went to] where we would say congratulations to our friends. etc. Sometimes we would write little fun things like:

2 B

[which was written as an addition problem] or things like:

"Don't make love by the garden gate. Love is blind, but the neighbors ain't."

This is the kind of place Regina Beach is, a place where everyone has to know everyone else's business, and this is especially true when it came to someone who's just moved there.

Along with Anna who's here to recover from her drastic loss, we have Nick, a Sergeant in the Canadian Army who came home to recover from his tragic accident where he lost a limb due to an IED explosion. Both of these two main characters were there to find some sort of solace from their own predicaments, and it's a chance meeting her first night in Regina Beach which brought these two "lost" souls together.

I loved how the relaxed dialogue shortly ensued soon afterwards and then eventually led their relationship to blossoming into one of a more serious nature. However, this could never grow into a truly open relationship since she refuses to talk about her past, and he refuses to talk about his future, especially where it concerns his desire to return to active duty. Who will be the first one to break the silence and share their secret? Will their relationship become a happy ever after one? I'm not saying, but I am giving Ms. Bower's book 5 STARS!

Dear Robin,
Thank you for your insightful review of Moving On. Secrets do curtail a truly open relationship and trust is necessary to share those things most painful and life-changing.
The residents of Regina Beach will appreciate that you have understood their desire to know a new neighbor in their midst.
Yours truly,
Annette Bower

Dear Robin,
You are right, I did live in Regina Beach for many years and have a real affinity for the town. I write about the places I live, I believe these places are as exciting as many other parts of the world.
Yours truly,

Hi Annette

As a Book Reviewer I endeavor to write something others can relate to, as I did regarding my days in junior high school. I believe personalizing my reviews makes me a real individual and not just someone writing a review.
Given the location for the main part of the book, I have to wonder how much of you is actually in it.
Have a GREAT DAY with whatever you do.
