Brody Markham has endured a nightmare, spending the last five years in prison and losing everything that was dear to him. Now he's back home, trying to survive in a world he doesn't recognize anymore. While his family and friends desperately try to reach through to him, he shelters himself further and further away from their love.
Alyssa Myers has worked her entire life to distance herself from the luxurious and privileged lifestyle in which she was raised. Running her non-profit agency, The Haven, she is content to spend her days helping abused animals find sanctuary, which fulfills her in a way that money just can't buy.
Maybe it's that she recognizes in Brody some of the same characteristics she sees in her homeless wards, but Alyssa is powerless to stop her personal quest to make Brody whole again.
While Brody struggles to surface from the darkness, Alyssa tries to protect her heart in case he's not willing to accept the light that she offers him.
"Douglas Berger and Bunny Warren alternate in narrating chapters in this sequel to On the Rocks. Berger is convincing as Brody Markham, who's having difficulty adjusting after being released from prison for a vehicular homicide conviction. Warren captures all the warmth of Alyssa Meyers, a caring young woman who has just opened an animal shelter. When Markham is required to perform community service, he reluctantly volunteers at the shelter. As the couple become involved with each other, listeners will enjoy their exchanges as well as the story's spirited animals, luscious food descriptions, and descriptions of the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Both narrators' deliveries intensify when Markham takes on Myers's former boyfriend, who's taken to stalking her. At that point, formerly unknown facts about the accident for which Markham was convicted are discovered. Each character is well rendered, and listeners will be rewarded with a satisfying yet realistic conclusion." (AudioFile Magazine)
