Pieces of the Heart
To escape the stress from her all-consuming job as an accountant, Caroline Collier joins her overbearing mother at the family's vacation home in the mountains of North Carolina. But the serene beauty of Lake Ophelia cannot heal Caroline's heart, which is still broken by the loss of her younger brother, who died when she was seventeen. And the tension between her and her mother still simmers. Only their neighbors, the husband and daughter of one of Caroline's childhood friends, seem able to penetrate her cool reserve, giving Caroline the courage to face her biggest fears-and dive headfirst into life.

Review: Pieces of the HeartUser Review - Renee - Goodreads
Loved this book. I think I could relate to the main character in that I am also a swimmer so much of what she described about the way she felt in the water really "struck home" for me. The only thing that keeps this book from getting 5 star is that I thought the ending a little "sappy." Read full review
