Music is my motivation. I’ve always believed that, because of it, I would be somebody. Somebody to someone, and something to myself.
At age four, I picked up my grandfather’s acoustic guitar and, up until three weeks ago, I’ve never put it down. From a single chord to a full arrangement, music fed my soul. I craved it with every fiber of my being, but now, I just don’t know. That driving force that’s always pushed me has somehow stalled, along with the thrill, the passion, and the familiarity . . . it’s all gone. I’m beginning to worry that my love for music just isn’t enough.
As the summer tour finally comes to an end, I head to the Blue Ridge Mountains instead of returning to Nashville. It’s here that I’ve always been able to lose myself amongst the solitude and the lake, but what I didn’t expect to find was her.
Wild blonde hair, light blue eyes, and a laugh I find myself trying to coax from her has me completely enamored. She’s quiet, incredibly poised, and driven by secrets as big as the mountains around us. They’re what’s made her untouchable, and left me wanting to know more.
Maybe that’s what I need. Maybe I need more. Maybe I need her.
They say that life isn’t about how many breaths we take, but how many moments take our breath away. But what if those moments aren’t filled with happiness and love, but something dark and haunting? For me, it’s those moments that’ve shaped and taken over my life. I can’t change who I am, God knows I’ve tried, and, because of this, I’ve accepted the silver lining . . . I’m alive.
Fifty-two white keys, thirty-six black keys, ten fingers, seven notes, two friends, and one stage. At the piano, on the stage, with my two best friends, I finally found myself, and I live for those moments. One by one, I collect them, cherish them, patiently waiting for the next, until it arrives and changes everything. That’s the moment I meet him.
Blue Horizon was my first book by Kathryn and let me tell you it will not be my last, i loved the writing style and her words compiled into a wonderful story that had me captivated for a good few hours, i simply could not put this book down.
I adored both the main characters, Ava has a past that haunts her every day, simple things can bring on such horrific panic attacks. Ash a great musician who has lost the passion behind his music and just wants to feel again.
Both these characters carry emotional burdens, but then when their paths crossed they find that they can overcome anything when they lean on each other,trust and love.
The way that Ash helps Ava during her panic attacks really tugged at my heart he is such a beautiful man.
I found myself pulled into this story and felt every emotion within the words, this is a unforgettable story that captures your soul.
Kathryn does an excellent job in painting the scenes throughout the whole book, but especially between Ash and Ava, the story plays out like a movie in your head.
