--To Get to You
I can tell you my favorite parts, for a start.
Riley and Becca: My very favorite part is the beginning and the visuals I got as the balsam fir was loaded on the sled and the walk in the starlight sky glancing off the snow. Their conversations budding; walking up to the Airstream and the siblings bursting forth. What love they had for each other. Hot cider and baked sugar cookies, lovingly carved and decorated by hand.
Jake: I applaud the Dad for the decision he made ~ to reunite beyond rekindling another award from the public view.
Riley: The struggle leaving the Jeep ~ the prized treasure that was all his. To make that call. How hard. Conflict of emotion. The buffer their friend Saul was. Feet on the dash ~ not mattering after a while as the connection was more important.
The struggle to stay the course. A long trip with past memories ~ vacant and haunting, longing for what couldn't be returned, pushing back time.
I want the reader to experience what I did and not have snippets put before them, robbing them of self-discovery.
These are tidbits of To Get to You I gleaned. So important to read with the heart, filling in longing gaps, moving forward.
