Paige Bleuabout this book: On the surface, 'Finding Summerland', is a love story, following the journey of two lost souls. Wesley Rochester was born into wealth, has the perfect family, and hates his life. Olivia is a mysterious girl, who arrives on the beach with little explanation of her past. They are drawn together in an almost insatiable way, the attraction is instant and they become inseparable. Olivia has secrets of her own though, beginning with the fact that she isn't exactly human. Wesley isn't bothered by her revelation, he's never met anyone quite like Olivia and he needs her as much as she needs him. Channing, Wesley's older brother, is missing. Wesley's life feels like it's in complete disorder and Olivia is his key to understanding. But it is so much bigger than that.
It's really about opening your mind to the possibility that there is more than meets the eye. Just beyond the veil, behind dogma and myth, there is a completely unexplored paradigm. Wesley is slowly being awakened to the reality that he is more than he remembered. It is a story of discovering one's true self and the synchronicities that happen along the way. The parts that have been suppressed, forgotten, or abandoned begin to surface. Destiny and fate clash as Wesley rediscovers his truth and begins deciding for himself. Olivia also has a choice. To stay with Wesley in his world and give up her own, or return home to save him.
This is the introductory book of the series, 'The Ameryn Chronicles', a complex story that unfolds in stages. Book 1, 'Finding Summerland', touches on the ancient race of the Ameryn, what we know as mermaids, only don't fully understand. We begin to get a sense of why they evolved the way they did and what it has to do with Wesley, and possibly even why Channing is missing. It also gives us a sneak peak at future installments with some alternative history to ponder. There is no instant gratification here. The symbolism is progressive and subtle. So in short, yes, it is a romance...there are supernatural, paranormal aspects, but it is also something profoundly more, for those with the eyes to see it.
