  • REVIEW

    Upon finishing SEA by Heidi R. Kling, I was filled with an overwhelming sense of hope, love and heartache.

    Heidi has written a wonderful summer read that not only has a special romance set in an exotic locale, but showcases how hope can fuel the human spirit and how love can change the path in which we take our lives.

    SEA is a story about Sienna Jones, a girl that was once daring and fearless with life until her mother disappears in a plan accident while on a mission overseas. Now Sienna is withdrawn and afraid of taking chances, yet despite her fears she reluctantly agrees to assist her father in post-tsunami Indonesia for two weeks. Once there, Sienna is drawn to the orphans that so desperately need her but it is one particular orphan named Deni that has captured her heart. It is not long before they begin on an mission of hope that produces some unexpected heartache and joy and Sienna will never be the same again.

    I liked this romantic and compassionate story that demonstrated that we may cross paths with people that can have powerful outcomes in our lives regardless of how long or how little they are in it.

    Favorite Quote:

    "I wanted to tell him that you can meet someone and they can change you life forever, even if you have known him for a short while, that when you leave, you're a different person than before you met him..."

    1. Awesome review! I love the quote! It's so striking. Sea has been on my wishlist for quite a while now. I'm dying to read. Sienna and Deni seem like lovable characters with realistic feelings.

    “Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself. Reading is escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
