Description

Empty nest. Broken dreams. A single mom rediscovers her inner compass on the Potomac shores, guided by an ancient arrowhead and the captivating marsh man who found it.

Katie Young thought she had it all figured out. A fresh start in sunny Florida, a new husband, a thriving career. But life, like the tide, has a way of shifting course. Forced back to Virginia by the tragic loss of her mother, the family river house becomes her refuge from a storm no one saw coming.

Heartbroken and adrift, Katie explores the river on her dad’s old boat, questioning where—and with whom—she truly feels at home. Rekindled friendships around the beach bonfire spark new dreams in the little town of Occoquan.

But when a neighbor’s development threatens an eagle's nest, Katie finds herself fighting for her heart, her land, and a future she never dared to imagine. As the lovelorn cicadas emerge from decades in the dark, can Katie chart a new course toward a forever love?

The Cicada Spring, the first in the Potomac Shores series, is a coming-of-middle-age story about second chances, the enduring bonds of friendship, and the power of nature to heal and guide us home. 

Empty nest. Broken dreams. A single mom rediscovers her inner compass on the Potomac shores, guided by an ancient arrowhead and the captivating marsh man who found it.

The mom and daughter story of this book was so sweet! I just was so attached from the first page. It was such a sweet, honest, and beautiful story. I listened to the audio and read the book. It helped me get through gettin gall the winter gear away, and stay up way past my bedtime. Carolyn McBride is a new author for me and I can’t wait to read more of her stories! Beautiful story, and wonderfully written. Add this book to your TBR lists.
