The Way Home
The Chasing series, book 3
by Linda Oaks
About the Book:
“Not everyone you love is going to leave you…but what if they do?"
For Nate Lucas, this was his reality.
When he lost her, he was left with no choice. Life was impossible in Crawley without her. He couldn’t live with all of the memories or her ghost.
He vowed to never return again.
It was business that brought him back and the chance to right a wrong, but then she needed him; his best friend’s little sister. Her life and her child’s were in danger. It was an arrangement until it became more.
He vowed to never love again; to never allow the past a chance to repeat itself, but sometimes you’re left with no choice.
When the walls around your heart are finally breached, do you run and save yourself or stay and fight for the chance to love again?
When you lose your way, how do you find the way home?
Nate Lucas lost the love of his young life when he was 18 years-old. We know this story, we’ve read (in Chasing Rainbows) how deeply that death affected the other people who loved her – Natalie Hayes. But for Nate, the pain wasn’t simply about her death; for him, the body blow came from more than just losing her, with her he’d lost his future. Or at least the future he’d seen for himself, for them, the only future he believed he could have. To survive, to go on, he had to leave. He had to keep himself separate, wall himself off and stay away.
But alone is no way to live, and living the way he did through all the years since her death was merely existing. To heal, to really live again would take more.
