It started out so simply. Anna runs away to Thailand, drags her best friend Dante with her and spends a few weeks away, taking on other people’s problems while getting away from her own. She meets the enigmatic Jude Grayson, and for as long as it’s clear to both of them that it ends when they leave, she thinks she’s got the perfect fling planned out.
Or does she?
Anna returns home to find that her life is no longer the way it once was, and that she can’t stop thinking about him. She learns through tragedy that nothing she’s ever believed in has turned out to be true. The worst part? The people she loved were keeping a secret from her. And that no matter what she does, no matter how hard she fights against it, every path she takes keeps leading her back to Jude.
This is a story about love, found in a faraway place by two very unlikely people. It is also a story about friendship and loyalty and fighting for what you have despite the illogical mystery of fate. And with the struggle between morality and guilt, faith and acceptance, there comes a learning that even the best-laid plans are powerless against the alignment of the universe.
From the beaches of Thailand to the streets of New York, three friends, Anna, Dante, and Jude will learn the hard way that once providence steps in, there is nothing in the world that can change what is truly meant to be.
Christine Brae has done it again! She has brought to like such a emotionally charged, realistic story that you cant help but fall in love with. Anna, Jude and Dante will take you on an incredible journey of self discovery, love, and loss. Christine paints such a vibrant and truthful picture that you will feel everything that Anna, Jude and Dante do.
” Drenched, we danced away our worries and fears. There was no need for reasons, no need for confessions.
They say that love is found in the darkest of moments, when you’re lost and alone, in desperate search for answers. But that night, we found love in merriment and joy.”
To me that passage says it all and reached a place so deep in my soul that I will always carry it with me. I laughed, I cried. I was broken and I was healed. I experienced a journey I will soon not forget.
Listen to the songs that inspired the story of Anna, Dante and Jude.
