Sinopsis: Book 3 in the Treading Water SeriesIn a drunken stupor, Brandon O'Malley frightens his brother Aidan's girlfriend, enraging his brother and the rest of his family. Aidan offers Brandon the choice of rehab or jail, and Brandon reluctantly enters treatment. While in rehab, he confronts the lifetime of secrets and resentments that fueled his spiral into alcoholism, and these revelations have a major effect on his entire family. When he returns home expecting to resume his supervisory role in the family's construction business, Brandon learns his father has retired and put his younger brothe, Colin,r in charge. Brandon is unhappy to be given the job of renovating an apartment building where he loses his heart to an adorable five-year-old tenant named "Mike." After he falls hard for Michaela, Brandon becomes involved with her mother Daphne, who is running from a past that will later test his sobriety and his mettle as a man."The finale to the Treading Water trilogy was an enchanting lesson in ensuring a low point in your life doesn't define the person you become. It is wonderfully written with characters that envelope you in their world. This book is an excellent ending to a series of books that truly pulled at my heartstrings." --Starting Over, A Reviewer Top Pick, Night Owl Reviews.The Treading Water SeriesBook 1: Treading WaterBook 2: Marking TimeBook 3: Starting OverBook 4: Coming Home
From the Author:
This is another book I didn't plan to write. When I began work on Marking Time, I had no idea I'd meet yet another character whose story would need to be told. When I was looking for a name for Clare's love interest in Marking Time, my friend Julie and I batted around a bunch of options. Travis was one of them (we ended up using that in True North). When we settled on Aidan O'Malley, I decided to give him a big, boisterous Irish family full of the joys, trials and tribulations that go with it. When we met Aidan's brother Brandon in Marking Time, he was in the process of hitting rock bottom in his struggle with alcohol. His story needed to be told, and thus, Starting Over was born.
During the writing of this book, I attended an Alcoholic's Anonymous meeting that ranks among the most powerful experiences of my life. I read The Big Book from cover to cover, and immersed myself in all things AA and Al-Anon. And while Brandon's alcoholism is a central theme in this book, it's not the prevailing theme. I like to think this book is about love--the sustaining love of a family, the love between a man and a woman and the love of a man for a little girl who quite literally saves his life. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it.
