The Beach Pool – Life comes full circle
A feel-good story about life, love, and family.
When Zach and Desi lose their mother to a tragic illness, it’s left up to their father, Josh to finish molding their children into the kind, caring, and loving adults he and Christine would be proud to send out into the world.
Each of them would forever remember their mother’s last words and wish: “Zach, you’re the ribbon that surrounds our family with love and Desi, you’re the bow on top that rains love over us. You’re a wonderful package and promise me you’ll always protect, guide, and watch over each other.”
Five years later, out on the beach, Josh handed fifteen-year-old Zach a ten-dollar bill as he started toward the beach pool. “Go make someone’s day by buying them an ice cream cone,” he told him.
At the same time, fifteen-year-old Zoey headed for the beach pool, looking forward to a few quiet hours of reading.
Minutes later, Zach and Zoey’s worlds would collide and the simple gesture of him buying her an ice cream cone would change both of their lives - forever.
Over the next ten years, Zach, Zoey, and Desi would find their worlds tangled, untangled, and then tangled yet again, as they meet the challenges of growing up, protecting each other, falling in love and facing everything else that life would throw at them.
Comments from readers of advanced copies. Oh my God, I was so sorry when this story ended. I feel like I’m part of the family and want to know what wonderful things the future holds for them. Please please write a sequel!
