Summary: Annie Crow Knoll-Sunrise is the story of a place where people come to restore their spirits, heal their pain and reclaim their lives.
Annie is a determined young woman who is left to run her family’s property after the death of her parents. Managing fourteen summer cottages with only the help of a family friend, she struggles to survive on her own. When she meets Drew, a young college professor, Annie thinks she’s finally found a love she can trust.
But years of conflict and pain destroy their bond and leave Annie alone again, unless she can find lasting peace and passion in the most unlikely arms.
In this family saga, love, loss and history twine together the people whose lives are changed by Annie’s fierce determination and the magic of her knoll nestled along the head-waters of the Chesapeake Bay.
I received this book for a fair and honest review.
This book grabs you and won’t let go from the very first page. I found myself wanting to get back to Annie and read more when I was unable to get to my kindle that day.
This is a book that makes you feel for the main character. Annie is a complicated soul. She has always lived on the Knoll. She has never wanted to live anywhere else. With the passing of her parents at a young age, she is left to run her family’s summer cottages on her own.
This is a coming of age story. However, it’s so much more than that as well. The story follows Annie as a young girl to a grown woman with a family. I feel everyone can see themselves as Annie in different times of her life.
I highly enjoyed this book. I noticed it’s part 1 of a series. I’d love to read the next one and will be looking for it.
