The pain in Tess Dyer’s heart stems from a lifetime of
rejection: by her distant mother, by a string of one-night stands, and by her
husband, Jason. He promised to love her forever, yet here she is, divorced and
shunned in her own town. She tries everything to dull the pain: sex, work, and
endlessly cleaning the house. Finally, in a fit of despair, she abandons the
small town of Brookfield, Maine, for an even smaller town, determined to start
over with a clean slate. But she can’t run from the demons in her head, and she
soon falls back on her old habits, this time with the help of her sexy new
neighbor Brian. Though she tells herself he is just a warm body to dull the
pain, his kindness has a soothing effect on her bruised heart. But the fear of
losing his love is always there, and before long, Tess’ past threatens to destroy
her fragile new happiness.
Ultimately, she must make a choice: continue drifting
through life, or confront the cruel realities of her past and start living. A
dramatic departure from contemporary chick-lit, Waiting for Spring is a
moving novel about a real woman struggling to find her place in the world.
