This is one of those books you just have to read - even if you don't know it yet. The story gets you in from the first moment when Lucie is found standing knee-deep in water. She does not know who she is or how she come to be there. As the story unfolds it takes you on a journey of sadness, reality and most importantly hope. Jennie Shortridge beautiful creates her characters and crafts a story that is sad but inspiring. A must read.

Good readReviewed in Canada on 6 May 2014
Not into love stories but this was was enjoyable and I wanted to keep reading to see how it ended up. Well written to how main characters evolved and how new and old memories are made. Really liked the book!
Should've delved deeperReviewed in the United States on 7 November 2018
Lucie disappears for 9 days and is found standing in San Francisco Bay with amnesia. What traumatic event triggered this? This is an interesting thing because Lucie is normally an uptight, control freak. It all comes from another traumatic event from her childhood. But what if we were freed from the baggage of our pasts? Who could we be? This is theinteresting part. As Lucie resumes life with her wounded fiancé, who also has a difficult past, who will she be as she tries to recover her memories? The old Lucie or the newly freed Lucie? What annoyed me about the story was the tentativeness of the characters. Of course, this would happen initially, but they never communicate with each other and I found it odd that Lucie wouldn’t be plying him with questions in her quest to rediscover herself. Also, it’s never really explained why she hates the aunt who took her in so much. This story could’ve delved deeper into the fascinating premise of reinventing yourself and overcoming your past.
Fascinating Premise, well-executedReviewed in the United States on 14 April 2013
You can get the general plot from the other reviews (& I agree this is a thoroughly engrossing read). What I find most fascinating in LWM is the notion of what it must be like to get to/have to view yourself solely through the eyes and reactions of others and whatever 'evidence' you've left. Talk about opportunity for redemption! I'm a Shortridge fan from way back and this is my favorite of her novels.

Wonderful!Reviewed in the United States on 26 February 2017
What a lovely story beautifully told, with the power and gracefulness of water, as the title eludes. So well put together, even though it's like a puzzle, it is as smooth as an "all in one piece" glossy photograph. Great characters, settings, rhythms.
OkReviewed in the United States on 5 April 2020
What kind of ending was that ? I was not pleased with the ending but everything else was fine. Would not recommend it
