Ella is a middle-aged woman with a stagnant career, an exasperated teenage daughter, and a husband that has left to make a new life with another woman. Her first attempt at dating is a disaster, and in an attempt to refocus her life and rediscover her joy, Ella goes fishing. It is here that she meets Dennis, the older, captivating man that ends up saving her life and stealing her heart. But Dennis has a history, and Ella might just be in for the biggest heartbreak of her life if she can not get her emotions under control and face the demons from her own past.
The story starts with Dennis staring at Ella who is fishing just like him at the riverside, looking at her he was all amazed and mesmerized by her presence and she is looking lost and sometimes gloomy. Week-by-week their meeting at the reverse side became frequent as they fished and they started becoming friends. Dennis seemed to like her company and she did like to talk to him too.
So one day as Dennis was walking he heard someone hitting another person, soon he yelled to stop him, and help the other the person and instantly realizes that the person who was beaten up and with the swelled face is Ella and that person that hurt her was the person whom she went on the first date after her divorce, that she had mentioned. Saving her from him is what made their friendship grow deeper and while saving her it is when he met her 15 years old daughter.
So the story continues from friendship to love, from doubt to happiness, from moments to memories, from family drama to epic story. So is this a start of a new love story? What will happen next? Will Ella be able to become an independent woman? What will Dennis do?
Beyond The Surface is the debut novel written by Trisha Ridinger McKee and this book is a great example of elegancy and simplicity that amazed me and took me to a whole new episode of love.
I liked the way the author Trisha Ridinger McKee has written this book with creativity and with the beautifully expressed emotions. The story is written in easy to read English which made the book more imaginative and attractive. I also liked the cover of the book, which is beautiful and lovely.
The highlight of the book is the narration which is impressive to read. The storyline has an easy flow and has a perfect balance of emotions. And the best part of the book is that throughout the book there are few quotes that will touch your heart and will make you feel the emotions of what character is feeling like when Dennis says "I think the hardest part is to break in routine. people are such comfort creatures. We crave that familiarity, the safeness of what we know. But you will eventually get your own routine and get used to not being with him daily."
No doubt the book is emotional but in a way, it also shows how to be independent and have confidence in ourselves.
Overall I love reading this elegant and beautiful story. I will definitely recommend all the other readers to read this. So click here and read now the sorry of Ella & Dennis in the book Beyond The Surface written by Trisha Ridinger McKee.
