Healing Waters

Four women, who each have a scar from their past, attempt to vacate their memories by staying at Paradise Island in the Bahamas in Hurricanes in Paradise by Denise Hildreth Jones. Upon arrival, each of the women are told about the healing waters that the island possesses. And each woman denies the fact that the need any help.

Riley. A mother who survived a death sentence, but lost her husband during the fight.

Tamyra. A winner of a beauty pageant who fell in love with the football player. Now the doctor's tell her she doesn't have much time left.

Laine. (Not-so-very-nice) Author. She's on Paradise Island researching her new novel, but can't seem to get her mind off of the husband that she divorced.

Winnie. Sent to Paradise Island by her children so that she could enjoy the time away. She hasn't been on vacation since her husband Sam passed away, and she struggles with the memories the island holds.

Each of these women hold secrets, fears, and a shelf full of worries. Whether we, as readers, can connect with one of them, or all of them, this novel fights to hide the scars while the healing waters promise if we just open up to them - they can take the scars away.
