Item description for Eventide by Cindy Martinusen Coloma...

Carrie left behind--but never got over--the summer of 1989. Now that she's dying young and still haunted by the secret of that summer, her friend Lauren is determined to soothe Carrie's scars. In the unraveling of lives and exposure of old secrets, a quiet miracle comes in the gathering grace.

Publishers Description

Eventide: the time from when the sun begins to set until total darkness has descended.

It was once of those magical seasons that lives forever in memory. An Italian seaside village. Days of adventure and romantic exploration. Moonlight swims in a sparkling sea. A once-in-a-lifetime love. And though it ended in heartbreak, though she moved on to marry happily and have a son, Carrie never quite put that summer behind her. Now she's dying young and still haunted by thoughts of her long-ago love. Her best friend Lauren, determined to put Carrie's mind at ease, sets out to do something completely foreign to her own cautious, conservative nature.

Out of love, Lauren will find and confront the man she despises, the man who broke her best friend's heart, the man who has spent the last twenty years running from his past. Out of love, she will journey alone to retrieve secrets left behind after that never-for-gotten summer. And somehow, she will set into motion events that change nothing . . . but transform everything.

As the mysteries of twenty years unravel, as husband and son and friend and even a long-lost love converge to say goodbye, something unexpected unfolds.

Another seaside adventure. Another moonlight swim. And somethow, even at eventide, the miracle of enduring grace.

Reviews - What do customers think about Eventide?

Good read  Oct 15, 2007
It was good... but a little bit drawn out. The entire book kept referencing something that happened in the past on a particular day, but you didn't find out what it was until near the end. Otherwise, pretty good.
Relaxing read  May 9, 2006
Eventide is a well chosen title, because it reflects everything about the book, the pacing, the emotional journeys of the characters, and Carrie's peaceful approach toward death. However, the story is told in an almost impersonal way. It feels as if the reader is watching the story unfold as a whole, and never really gets deeply involved with any one character. Perhaps this is just the style of Martinusen's narrative; but, even so, reading this book is somewhat of a calming experience. That is most likely because of the poetic phrasing. Those looking for a relaxing read will find in Eventide a peaceful exploration into death and the resurrection of memories buried but not forgotten. - Devin B. Wieland, Christian Book
Quiet Elegance  Apr 14, 2006
Cindy Martinusen has an elegance to her writing that draws us in slowly, embraces us, then turns our eyes to things weighty and deep. She's done this for us in previous novels, and once again she uses the sea as a symbol of life and death. As a small gift to previous readers, she even references places familiar from "The Salt Garden."

"Eventide" is a story of a man and a woman whose desire to understand the past draws them in an ever-tightening circle toward a young woman on her deathbed. Carrie, the dying woman, is a former love of Graham, and the best friend of Lauren. Their attempts to unravel old mysteries drive wedges between them, while also offering chances to draw them closer than ever. Along the way, Carrie's adoring husband and likeable son are pulled in as well.

This is a story of haunting beauty, profound insight, and intrigue. While wearing certain colors of a mystery and a romance novel, it takes on hues all its own--hues that match Martinusen's ability with words. For those longing for rich stories and characters, look no further.
