Release Blitz: The Silent Waters by Brittany C. Cherry

Title: The Silent Waters
Series: Romance Elements #3
Author: Brittainy C. Cherry
Genre: Romance
 Release Date: September 22, 2016



Our lives are a collection of moments. Some utterly painful and full of yesterday's hurts. Some beautifully hopeful and full of tomorrow's promises.

I’ve had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones—the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones—all included him.

I was ten years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This is the story of a boy and girl who loved each other, but didn’t love themselves. A story of life and death. Of love and broken promises.

Of moments.

(Book Three in the Elements Series. Complete Standalone.)

Review by Lisa Kane

No matter what, find me, because I'm going to be the one to show it to you. I'm going to help you cross things off your to-do list. I'm gonna show you the whole wide world. 
Just like that, I was his, and he'd never even know it.
Promise? I wrote.
Promise, he replied. 

Maggie Riley is six and moving to a new house with her father. He's marrying a woman he's met and this time Maggie hopes it lasts. Ever since her mom took off, her dad has gone through relationships much too quickly, but maybe this one will be the one. 

She meets Katie and her kids and their friend Brooks Griffin. She hits if off with Brooks right away. 

"And, Maggie, this is Brooks. He lives across the street the from, but tonight he's sleeping over."

She bonds with her new family. Particularly Brooks.

On her way to Brooks' house one day she wanders into the woods. That day, at that time, the devil was there. Pure evil. Maggie saw something no child should ever have seen and came face to face with her own private hell. She got away but she lost so much that day. 

<b>In that moment I knew who he was.
The devil.</b>
Maggie's scars are lasting. She watches everyone, including Brooks live their lives-proms, dating, parties. Her life revolves around her nightmares of the past and dreams of the future. But Brooks is always  a rock for her. He will never abandon her. Slowly their friendship has become so much more. 

"There's this magnetic pull of friendship between us, Maggie May. You're my magnet."

He wants so much with her. Brooks is a talented singer and guitarist and together with Katie's brother and his friends they form a band. Maggie comes up with the name Crooks. 

"C is for Calvin, O is for Own, the other O is Oliver, and then well, Brooks is the rest," he explained. 

She uploads a video of them singing on Youtube and it opens up a whole world to the band. But there are reasons that Maggie can't be part of their new life and she remains behind. 

"Stop it, she ordered. "You think about the kind of life you'd give Brooks. Do you really want him to give up his dreams to stay here with you? How do you think you could be in a relationship with him when he's traveling the world, making a life for himself? Why would you do that to him?"

Silent Waters spans decades. Years of change for Brooks and his band. For Maggie life moves slowly. But always Brooks is part of it. Until he isn't. 

I met someone. 

But when we least expect it, when life is going along great, life knocks you on your ass. Brooks was Maggie's rock for so many years. Will she be there for him?

"That's kind of the beautiful part in the hurting, though."
"What's that?"
"The strength you find to keep going on. Even on the mornings when you think you won't make it, by nightfall you realized that you could. That's my favorite thing about life-that no matter what, it keeps moving on."
"What's your least favorite thing about life?" I asked.
"That no matter what, it keeps moving on."

At times, this is a heartbreaking read. Does that really surprise anyone at this point when it involves reading one of Ms. Cherry's works. I expect there will be a need for tissues...and usually tequila. This one pulls at the heart and tears at your soul. But you know if you just keep reading you'll find that rainbow after the storm. No matter how dark it is right now, the sun will shine at some point and a new day will begin. 

"The world keeps spinning because your heartbeats exist."
