Wind to Water
A United States military plane is shot down over the Iraqi countryside; its young pilot is presumed dead. A decade later, his fiancee, Maryn, takes a trip to Australia to finally say goodbye to her airman who never came home. The Seattle school teacher meets a divorced marine biologist named Grant on a tour. Grant soon discovers he's attracted as much to Maryn's wit as to her looks. But occasionally, a melancholy creeps into her eyes. Eventually, she allows Grant to read a letter from her fiance-the kind soldiers write "just in case." Grant halts his romantic feelings and their friendship blossoms. Later, they reunite in California, but Grant wonders if Maryn's past is truly behind her. Wind to Water is a love story, travel adventure and romantic comedy. It chronicles an ordinary man's search for an extraordinary love in a world mostly unfit for such a venture. David Hamershock is an officer in the United States Armed Forces. The California native has flown nearly 2000 hours and 113 combat missions during his years of service. Prior to flying, he was a research biologist with several published works. He has an undergraduate degree in biological conservation from California State University, Sacramento, and a master's degree in managerial economics from the University of Oklahoma. Growing up near Lake Tahoe, the coastal redwoods and the Pacific Ocean, he developed an early appreciation for the great outdoors. Since then, his passions for culture, travel and nature have taken him to 35 countries. He lives with his wife and son in Hawaii. Wind to Water is his first novel."
