The Clearing by Heather Davis (Wanda)

In this bittersweet romance, two teens living decades apart form a bond that will change their lives forever. Amy is drawn to the misty, mysterious clearing behind her Aunt Mae’s place because it looks like the perfect place to hide from life. A place to block out the pain of her last relationship, to avoid the kids in her new town, to stop dwelling on what her future holds after high school. Then, she meets a boy lurking in the mist—Henry. Henry is different from any other guy Amy has ever known. And after several meetings in the clearing, she’s starting to fall for him. But Amy is stunned when she finds out just how different Henry really is. Because on his side of the clearing, it’s still 1944. By some miracle, Henry and his family are stuck in the past, staving off the tragedy that will strike them in the future. Amy’s crossing over to Henry’s side brings him more happiness than he’s ever known—but her presence also threatens to destroy his safe existence. In The Clearing, author Heather Davis crafts a tender and poignant tale about falling in love, finding strength, and having the courage to make your own destiny—a perfect book to slip into and hide away for awhile.

I have to say I think this is a sweet book. It starts off with a typical girl who moves out of town because of her no good boyfriend, which most of us ladies in this world have had at least once in this lifetime, a no good boyfriend. Moving into a small town where you become the "new girl" was something she really didn't care for. She just wanted to avoid conflict. Then one day she caught herself drawn to the mist in her aunt's land. There she finds something she wasn't looking for, love and happiness. Now who wouldn't mind walking into some mist and find a hottie that makes you smile and feel special? So that's what Amy found, but this guy was different. His manners, his clothes and his surrounding were different and she didn't understand it. But it didn't matter because she finally found a friend. However, this new friend she made was never around, he wasn’t in school, around the mall…anywhere. So as she continues to visit she comes to realization that he's stuck in time, back in 1944 and something was wrong. As the relationship progressed, their different reality changes everything.

I always wonder if I were stuck in time what one choice could I make to change my future.
I really enjoyed this book. I read the whole book in 3 days. This book makes you think, what one decision did you make that changed your whole life? And that's something Henry did, he changed his life and the life of his family by making one simple decision. He had to deal with the consequence of his decision, until Amy came around and had him see things differently. Learning and leaning on each other for support was what they both needed in life.

A Must Read!
