    Lovely story

    If you have read Letters across open seas you will have already had a glimpse into Noah and Anna’s story although this book can be read as a stand-alone book if you haven’t, as it’s easy to pick up on the story. Noah and Anna finally meet after years of writing to each other throughout the war, they have made been each others sanctuary through the hard times and are ready to move onto the next chapter of their lives, but Anna’s mother is doing her best to make sure they are split apart she has lost her son to the war and can’t stand that Noah has made it through. She makes it clear to Anna that if she chooses to marry Noah she will have nothing more to do with her and will make sure all their neighbours know that she disapproves. What she doesn’t reckon on is that the local priest has taken a liking to Noah even though he is not of the same faith as Anna and promises to support them if they decided to Marry. Noah is troubled from his experience of war and doesn’t feel he deserves Anna’s love especially after he tells her that her brother died saving his life and because he was an orphan he doesn’t want Anna to regret her mother turning her back on her. This is quite a different story to what Ava usually writes but I have enjoyed this book. “I received an ebook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own”.

    Lovely, heartwarming

    What a lovely story. I fell in love with Noah and Anna, as they did with each other, through their letters, and couldn't wait to read about them finally meeting in person! This story was worth the wait. I loved the hesitation, hopefulness as they first met and how they come to realize how deeply they have fallen in love. Of course, there were obstacles, and the steps and missteps of learning how to communicate, trust, and accept one another. Ava weaved a beautiful story about the impact of grief on our ability to hope, love, and connect. I truly loved how the community rallied around Noah and Anna, and the reminder of the ways in which family can be made, and not be who and what we are born into. Niall was also a wonderful character, and an added an element that allowed us to glimpse the sadness, grief, questions faced by those who went to war and came back and lived and found their happiness.

    Great book, great story- so amazing

    This book is the ending to Letters Across an Open Sea (compilation), however you can read this book without having read those. Letters Across an Open Sea is the beginning story of Noah Weatherby and Anna Sims and about their relationship that starts with writing letter to each other during World War 2 after Anna’s brother Martin who is also Noah’s best friend, dies. Along Waters of Sunshine and Shadow takes place as Noah finally comes back from the war (about a year and a half from when they started writing), it leaves off where the letters stop but there is enough information given that you can read this without reading the letters. I love this story like I do all of Ava Miles books. I think this is a little more special about Ava knows a little about being in a war zone. I love how good a job she does with showing the good and bad of coming back from the war for the soldiers. She also shows the truth in dealing with issues people have when some loved ones come home, and others do not. All of it is an adjustment for everyone and for those of us who have never had to deal with something like this it helps you relate. Anna’s mom is not happy Noah is there and her son, Martin is not. This is hard for both Noah and Anna in different ways. The community that Anna lives in including her Priest that she seems to adore tries to help them both. This is an amazing story and one that is so worth the read. "I received an eBook copy from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.

    So glad for Noah and Anna to finally meet.

    I love Noah and Anna. They finally meet and they know they are supposed to be together. The problem is her mother. Anna's mother can't get around the idea that her son is dead, Noah is alive and wants to be part of her family. She will not allow it. There is so much uncertainty. Noah can't move forward until the war is over and then he doesn't know what he will do with his life. He just knows that he wants Anna to be there, but he won't come between Anna and her mother. Noah knows what it is like to be without a family, but Anna doesn't. She not only has her mother, but she has the whole neighborhood. How can he take her away from that if her mother doesn't change her mind? Noah has come to love the neighborhood, has made some good friends and doesn't want to turn his back on that either. But, he can't stay there if Anna decides to stay with her mother and not him. Will she go away with him? They both have some decisions to make.
