What would you do with a second chance at life?

Sarah Talbot thought she’d never see another birthday. But against all odds, she beat the illness that could have killed her, reopened her bedding shop, Cloud Nine, and vowed to make the most of a fresh start that few are given. With Thanksgiving approaching, Sarah charters a small plane to take her to Elk Island, a remote spot off the rugged Maine coast where she spent some of her happiest days and where she hopes to reunite with the two most important people in her life. She arrives on the island with pilot Will Burke, a kindred spirit with whom Sarah forges a bond that will give them the courage to confront the past and have faith in the future…no matter how uncertain.

Once Sarah thought happy endings occurred only in books; now she believes they can happen for anyone. And as she and Will grow closer, and something unexpectedly real blossoms between them, she has him believing it, too. But is believing it enough? Is even love enough? Can real life be lived on cloud nine? In this stunning novel, New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice tells a story you will cherish, peopled with indelible characters whose challenges are your own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! From all the books Luanne Rice wrote, this is her best one ever. I could not put it down, and it evoked so many different emotions. Go read it, because its one of those books that can teach you how precious life is - and that love can save people in different ways.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cloud Nine A very passionate tale of the courage of one woman who has recently survived a cancerous tumor in her brain, and with this - the realization that life itself is precious and incredibly short. She makes the decision to reach out to reconnect with her seventeen year old "estranged" son, who, upon hearing of her illness has left home in search of his roots, where he settles peacefully in her own home town with her father and aunt of modest means. Mike matures as he listens and learns what is important in life from Grandpa's stories and experience. Sarah's tale weaves into hope as she becomes introduced to a man named Will who offers her strength, love, compassion and ultimately - the miracle of saving the life of her own son. This is a tale of family, love, honour and woe as tragedy bestows Sarah back to back. I found this to be a very "moving" book - not "happy ever after" but reality and true to the essence of life. I have also read this author's book "Follow the Stars Home" and although the story told touches on vague similarities, I would recommend this one over it.
