Riot Recommendation: Stories of Rekindled Romance

stillness of chimesThis installment of the Riot Recommendation is sponsored by A Stillness of Chimes by Meg Moseley.

When Laura Gantt returns to the North Georgia town where she recently buried her mother, she hears a startling rumor from her high school sweetheart, Sean Halloran. Many believe that when her beloved but unstable father disappeared in a mountain lake years ago, he staged his “drowning” and fled to the wild. Recent sightings of an unkempt mountain man seem to indicate that the crazy rumor is true. While Laura deals with serious doubts about the dad she adored, Sean protects her from still darker secrets that can remain hidden as long as her father never returns. As old affections are rekindled, Sean and Laura also uncover memories of a long-ago event that could break them even as it reveals the love beneath the secrets.




You know how it goes. Boy meets girl. Boy and girl fall for each other. Boy and girl get married, or boy and girl grow apart. Most stories end there. But every now and then, something special happens, and the boy and girl get a second chance together. And that’s what we want to talk about this week. Tell us: what are your favorite books that tell stories of rekindled romance?
