Weekend Book Club--The Obsession by Nora Roberts

I just finished THE OBSESSION by Nora Roberts. This book begins with the loss of a young girl's innocence when Naomi understands just who and what her father is. But can you truly escape the past? Naomi wants to, but when she finally decides to put down roots, the past comes back to haunt her once again. Only this time she's not a frightened child, but a woman. A dark story filled with hope. An amazing story by an incredible writer.


“She stood in the deep, dark woods, breath shallow and cold prickling over her skin despite the hot, heavy air. She took a step back, then two, as the urge to run fell over her.”

Naomi Bowes lost her innocence the night she followed her father into the woods. In freeing the girl trapped in the root cellar, Naomi revealed the horrible extent of her father’s crimes and made him infamous. No matter how close she gets to happiness, she can’t outrun the sins of Thomas David Bowes.

Now a successful photographer living under the name Naomi Carson, she has found a place that calls to her, a rambling old house in need of repair, thousands of miles away from everything she’s ever known. Naomi wants to embrace the solitude, but the kindly residents of Sunrise Cove keep forcing her to open up—especially the determined Xander Keaton.

Naomi can feel her defenses failing, and knows that the connection her new life offers is something she’s always secretly craved. But the sins of her father can become an obsession, and, as she’s learned time and again, her past is never more than a nightmare away.
