Overview

In a small town, reputation is everything. In her latest novel, #1 New York Times bestselling author Robyn Carr explores the burden placed on a young man returning home to face his mistakes–the first step in claiming the life he was meant to live  

At the age of nineteen, Seth Sileski had everything. A superb athlete and scholar, handsome and popular, he was the pride of Thunder Point. Destined for greatness, he lost it all in a terrible accident that put an end to his professional football career when it had barely begun. The people in his hometown have never forgotten what might have been. 

Seth has come to terms with the turns his life has taken. But now he's been presented with an opportunity to return home and show his father–and the people of Thunder Point–he's become a better, humbler version of his former self. 

Winning over his father isn't the only challenge. Seth must also find a way to convince his childhood neighbor and best friend, Iris McKinley, to forgive him for breaking her heart. With his homecoming, will Seth be able to convince the town, his family and especially Iris that he's finally ready to be the man who will make them all proud?

Lovely! Seth Sileski has returned to his hometown, older and wiser and ready to make some positive changes in his personal life as well as his town by taking over the Sheriff's office in Thunder Point. And one of his top priorities is to reconnect with the best friend of his youth, Iris McKinley. Iris isn't at all sure how she feels about Seth being back in town since he is responsible for her first, last and only broken heart and what's worse is he doesn't even realize what he did. What he thinks of as a simple misunderstanding about prom in reality was a whole lot more than that and even after all these years, Iris is determined never to let Seth have that kind of power to hurt her again. But Seth is as handsome and formidable as ever and once he learns the truth about the past, he is even more determined than ever to find out how he really feels about Iris and if it's possible to get past the hurt he unknowingly caused her and to see if there is any chance that these feelings he has always had for Iris could be love.Robyn Carr has once again written an outstanding book. The characters are so real and the story line is magnificent. I especially like the fact that she always brings a current issue into her stories. This was my favorite of her books and I have read many of them.

This story of young love gone bad and mature love igniting was heart warming in so many ways... Iris had loved Seth since they were kids.. Seth grew up the idol of his high school and his town.. Went off to college, signed a contract as a pro athlete and had a horrible career ending accident... Iris stayed in town after college and became the school Guidance Counselor and looked for someone to fall in love with but didn't get "that feeling"... Years later Seth returns to town as the Sheriff Deputy in charge and the story moves on... Read and enjoy!!!

A charming love story including suspense and a topic of interest and concern. The atmosphere of academia was especially of interest to me as a retired teacher. Robyn Carr does an outstanding job of making each story different and highlighting previous characters. LA-TXN

Seth and Iris find love seventeen years later. However, not before clearing a long misunderstanding. Along the way there is laughter, tears and friendship. All off the things that continue to draw you to Thunder Point.

What makes this story so good is the balance between reality and great story-telling. Two adults who know what they want in life and don't act utterly stupid? It's a miracle! Once again, Robyn Carr weaves a compelling story, somehow making a very serious subject fit into the context of a love story. Two caveats: (1) read the other novels in the Thunder Point series first; (2) don't expect this book to work as a substitute for a sex life. There are plenty of writers out there making contributions to the trash piles of the future. Thank goodness Robyn Carr is NOT one of them. Pros: Great love story, smart people, astute portraits of real-life problems without being depressing, multicultural, heartfelt Cons: A touch heavy on the sociological aspects, but we are reading about a high-school counselor and a deputy sheriff.

I have really enjoyed the first five books in the Thunder Point series, but this one fell just a little short of the mark for me in terms of the attraction between Seth and Iris and my enjoyment of their romance. I love the interaction between Thunder Points' couples including the community members and the newcomers. The revelation of Scott's storyline after his accident, the history of his childhood friendship with Iris, and her crush on him was very compelling and I very much enjoyed learning more about Iris' career as a counselor at the high school. I found her relationship with fellow high school History teacher Troy sweet and comical. I have a feeling we'll learn a whole lot more about him in the book to come. Taking on the serious topic of physical abuse was a shocking and very dramatic part of the book and it kept me on the edge of my chair from both the school and communities' perspective. It's a powerful and dramatic subject that will reach and possibly help a portion of Robyn's fan who might see themselves in the character of Rachel. But, all in all, once Seth and Iris hammered out their past and came together as a couple the chemistry between them just sort of fizzled instead of sizzled.

Kharak..... a desert wasteland that has been our home for over four thousand years. The hot sands of the great deserts are all our people have have ever known. Or, at least that's all they remember. The Polar Regions are the only habitable areas of this planet. Even Kiith Gaalsien, the oldest clan of our people, remember nothing more than this home. Many religions suggest that we did not originate on this world. They say that the great god Sajuuk banished us to this world for our sins. But not until recent discoveries prove the inevitable truth..... we are aliens to this world. <br> <p> One hundred years ago, a satellite's propulsion systems malfunctioned. It turned to face the planet instead of scanning for metallic debris in Kharak's orbit; it detected an object buried in the sands of the Great Banded Desert. An expedition was sent. What they found was an ancient starship, buried in the sand. On the metal pieces of it's hull were symbols. One of them was that of the Gaalsien clan. They claimed to have no knowledge of this. Deep inside the relic was a power plant that was not functional. It sent our scientific studies thousands of years into the future. But farther in, was hidden a single stone that would change the course of our history forever..... <br> <p> On the Guidestone was carved a galactic map, and a songle stone more ancient than the Kiiths themselves. Hiigara. Our home. <br> <p> The clans united as one and a massive colony ship was designed. Construction would take six decades; twenty years for the scaffolding that would aid the forty year construction of the Mothership. It would demand new technologies, new industries, and new sacrifices. The greatest of these was made by a young neuroscientist, who was an old friend of mine. Her name was Karan S'jet. She had herself permanently integrated into the ship's operating systems as it's living core. She is now fleet command. <br> <p> The promise of the Guidestone united the entire population. Everyone's mind became focused on a single question: Where do we come from? Every effort was put into building the ship that would seek out the answer among the stars.....

I just finished listening to audio of this book. There is funny lol humor, a painful issue to be resolved and deep devolpment of characters. This was like virgin river novels. I look forward to reading or listening more in this series.
