One of my favorite things when reading a book is when the author devotes one chapter to one person’s viewpoint. In It’s Never Water Under the Bridge by Rianne Moss, that is exactly what I am talking about. The first chapter starts with you getting to know Tess whose husband, Andrew, has been missing for 5 years. Tess and their daughter, Hannah, don’t know what happened to him or if he is even alive. However, you the reader find out when you read chapter 2 where you find out that Andrew is alive but being held captive in a basement.
Throughout the book you volley back and forth where one chapter you are hanging out with Tess and seeing how her and Hannah are dealing without Andrew in their lives and the next chapter you are witness to Andrew and his torture. I really enjoy this technique writer’s use … it makes you feel like you are really reading 2 different stories even though it is only viewpoints of the characters.
There is a lot that can be said about It’s Never Water Under the Bridge but by doing so it will take some of the nail-bitting, sitting on the edge of year seat, glued to the pages excitement.
It will amaze and frighten you when you see how one person can wreck havoc on people and when you finally find out the reasoning behind it, it will blow your mind !!! For one person to be so consumed over another person makes you wonder about commitment….in a bad way. But then on the other hand, you also witness the love and devotion between a husband and wife and you will long for that relationship.
I will leave you with this…… I highly recommend reading It’s Never Water Under the Bridge but make sure the doors are locked and you have a few lights on……because this story is going to take your breath away !!!
