Ashes on the WavesAshes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm trying to put into words how beautiful and heart wrenching this story is..I guess I can start by saying how refreshing it was to have the female character (Anna) pursue the male(Liam)I know you are thinking..why is this so refreshing, when it's done all the time? Well, because we are all so used to love stories being told the other way around..The girl is usually shy and naive and is usually the pursued, but not in this story. Anna is forthcoming and honest with no inhabitions and is strong and beautiful and knows what she wants and won't let anyone or anything get in her way. Liam is shy and innocent and really doesn't know the way of the world, he only knows the world of Dochas island where everything is handled by the villagers, including the law. The worst part was what he was told he was all his life...that he was...a demon and shouldn't be living. He grows up believing there is no hope for him and he has come to terms with his life,but it doesn't stop Liam from learning all he can from his books and about Anna from the tabloids that come to Dochas once a week. Anna is from a well to do family and Liam thinks he has no chance with her, until one day, she returns to the island..the place where they played as children, the place where Liam first fell in Love with Ms. Annabel Leighton. Anna is nothing like the tabloids say she is, she is quite the opposite. Anna and Liam find love and will fight for it, no matter what. There are things...Otherworldy things, playing a cruel game and using them as pawns to see if humans really are capable of true love or if they will cave at the first signs of trouble. Will it tear them apart forever, or does love really conquer all? I've never read such a captivating book in what seems like forever..I really had a hard time putting this book down and basically read it in one day. Hauntingly beautiful..Thanks for this wonderful gift Ms. Lindsey <3
