From New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters comes a timeless love story answering the question of what happens when everything is stripped away.
“There is a message for everything. From handwritten to verbal, seen and unseen. Messages exist all around us.”
But what if you don’t see?
What if you don’t understand?
What if, by ignoring the message, your life is never the same again?
Estelle Evermore morphed from nobody to somebody overnight.
Galloway Oak put his past behind him and endeavored to make his fortune using his trade.
Multiple unseen messages.
From sky to island, they find neither fame nor skills can save them. Stripped from society and left alone to survive the elements, the very task of staying alive outweighs all other needs.
Until survival turns to desire.
And desire turns to danger.
Author Pepper Winters is known for bringing the unexpected into her books. Her dark thrillers have kept readers on the edge of their seats. Her bold choices in subject matter have earned her the reputation of being the queen of dark romantic thrillers and the queen of angst. She has a gift of building a story that keeps readers glued to the pages.
Pepper Winters has once again surprised the readers with her latest release of Unseen Messages. She has stepped out of the dark world and created a completely different reading adventure. A reading adventure that once again kept me glued to the pages. The nicest thing about this latest release is that it was a stand alone book. There were no CLIFFHANGERS! I didn’t close this book with knots in my stomach. I closed it with extreme satisfaction. I marveled at the reading experience. I was left with the thoughts…What If? Would I survive? I also marveled at the journey Pepper created for each of her characters.
I think most of us are intrigued with the idea of being stranded on a deserted island. We romanticize the theory in our heads, but the reality of it is brutal. Would any of us be able to survive without our cell phones? Could we live without the comfort of air conditioning, electricity, and automobiles? Could we forage for food rather than going to the frig or going through a fast food drive through. Then think about hot showers, soap, deodorant , toothpaste, and body lotion. Could we survive without pain killers, bandaids, sunscreen, or antiseptics? A mere scratch could be deadly in a primitive world.
A group of travelers anxious to get to their destinations fall into the hands of fate. A family eager to reconnect on their long awaited vacation, a young man desperate to begin his penance and redemption, a young woman desperately seeking peace and quiet, and an experienced pilot taking his passengers to their dream destination. Fate intervenes. The helicopter crashes. Lives are lost. Some survive but the cost is high. Now the survivors must learn how to survive in a primitive, untouched world. None of the survivors have the proper skills to exist in a hostile environment.
Two adults and two children will learn a new meaning of life. A new life with different values and different dreams. They will learn to become a part of their new existence or perish. Along the way they will experience life, friendship, love, loss, and renewal. Their experience will forever change their perception of the world. It will change their lives. They are no longer the same people that boarded a helicopter on August 29th. They have evolved. Their secrets of the past no longer matter. Their future is on a new path. Their hopes of rescue may be in vain.
Pepper Winters did a phenomenal job writing this story. It was very realistic and heart breaking. She didn’t romanticize the harsh realities of her characters lives. She didn’t give them the kind of happily ever after we would expect. She gave them new lives that were molded by their time on an island.
This is a true love story in many ways. Four people bonded with their complete hearts. The survivors had a new perception of love, life, and happiness.
I highly recommend reading Unseen Messages by Pepper Winters!
