River of Hidden Dreams by Connie May Fowler
Book DescriptionSet in the waters and along the coasts of southern Florida, River of Hidden Dreams is more than a love story - it is the rapturous tale of Sadie Hunter, a free spirit who discovers the balance between freedom and romance, and the rich connection between past and present. Sadie is in love, and with a wonderful guy, but she doesn't know it. In fact, she's only just begun to realize that, like her Plains Indian grandmother and mulatto mother, she is afflicted with a certain resistance to love. For in addition to a quilt emblazoned with details of their strange history, and a boat built by her grandmother's lifelong unrequited lover, the two women left Sadie the curse of unyielding orneriness as far as romance is concerned. While Sadie sifts through the enchanted, often painful memory-stories that have been passed down to her, she wonders whether history is indeed repeating itself with her and Carlos, her passionate Cuban suitor. To lift the curse of the past and cut away the thorns around her heart, Sadie agrees to sail with Carlos on a voyage of discovery from Key West to St. Augustine, where the truth about her family awaits. The voyage will prove to be an odyssey in which the utterly unexpected holds sway and redemption shimmers all along the vast blue curve of the horizon....
