“So how much do you know about St. Augustine, Chris?”
The woman driving gently touched her elegant yellow hair, careful not to mess it up with her colored nails. She spoke with a strong southern accent and was incredibly beautiful for her age, which I guessed was more than twice my age of twenty-two. Her name was Mrs. Kirk. I had just met her at OrlandoAirport for the first time a few minutes before. She was waiting for me holding a sign with my name, Christian Langaa, printed on it.
The year was 1983 and I had recently finished my third year of med school at a university in Denmark. I had just left my country of birth for St. Augustine in Florida. Leaving Denmark was my father’s idea, really. I guess he thought it was about time I left the nest, so he called in a favor with an old friend of his, an American eye surgeon, to take me in and help me get a year at a medical school “over-there.” I can’t say I was unhappy about it. At that time all kids my age wanted to go to the States where stone-washed jeans and Michael Jackson came from. His latest album “Thriller” had just been released and was played on every radio station all over the world. Like so many else I bought the cassette and played it again and again on my Walkman. Where I came from anything that was American was considered hip and cool. That summer before I left, my friends and I had watched the movie Flashdance that made ripped sweatshirts popular and we loved the TV show Dallas and Dynasty that made everybody wear increasingly oversized shoulder pads – even us guys. We drank lots of Coke and dreamt of watching MTV, which at that time wasn’t something you could do in Europe yet and especially not in my small home-country Denmark, where we only had one national channel on our TV.

So this is a very interesting book. This kid, Chris, I love him and I hate him all at the same time. I think a part of me doesn’t like so much conformity, so there’s my issue. Ok lemme tell you a few things. Chris is very happy to come to America to study at Florida’s medical school. He’s really smart and his dad has told him to become a doctor, so he will. That’s my first negative point. But his dad is a GP, and Chris wants to help people especially kids, so he’d like to be a doctor without borders for a while and then go into Peds. Here’s his first positive point 🙂 things get real interesting one his first night in the USA. He’s staying at a mansion, they give him nice things. But it also seems superficial.
So, he goes out with the rich family’s hot daughter, heather. Heather is your typical spoiled rich girl, but at least she is honest about exactly who she is. So she introduces Chris to her friends down by the swamps, and serious drama takes place… He’s attacked and then saved by TWO different predators! It’s a thrill ride of crazy! And then some odd things begin happening, and Chris meets the “mysterious girl next door.” You know, I can’t stand people who judge others without the real story. And of course you get this. The rich family doesn’t like the “weird” neighbors so they spread lies. BUT positive point for Chris into not listening to all the crap.
this is a fascinating story. Things unfolded so well! I read it quite quick. There were some surprises and some things I predicted. But I still loved it. I really liked the Native American lore that plays into the story. I especially like the “weird” neighbors! This family makes me happy! I loved reading every thing about them! Everyone has their own uniqueness and that’s very cool to me
I will say one more negative thing about Chris… HE’S SUCH A TYPICAL GUY!!! You know, he gets a heartbreak, so he fixes it with loveless sex and bottled up emotions. You know, our choices in life really do shape things. I don’t think I could do something unless my whole heart is in it, so I could never “follow the family trade” unless it meant something big to me. But I get that it’s “sensible”. Now with that said, I really did like this book, a lot! Especially all the mysteries unfolding 🙂 and you know you’ve connected with a character when you wanna slap them for their stupid choices lol
The author is working on book two and I can honestly say I can’t wait to read it. There is a kind of happily ever after, it just wasn’t MY HEA! Hahahaha I’m seriously anxious to see where the story will go with that last sentence 🙂 so with that, pretty please hurry and gimme book 2! 4 PAWS! 🙂
