Ten years ago, I saved his life. The daughter of a megachurch pastor, I always assumed that the walls were there to protect me. Now, I see that they’re meant to hold me captive. My father’s followers were my family, his church my home, and his teachings my law.
When Killian re-entered my life, I was nineteen. A lost soul in need of a savior. He started out as a distraction. A distraction that quickly grew into compulsion. I tried to stay away, but he stirred up something within me that was more real than anything I ever experienced inside the church.
What happens when a girl from the inside falls in love with a boy on the outside?
He’s a baseball player, known around the entire world, and I’m—well, I’m nothing more than a hostage of my faith.
Perhaps it’s fitting that his name means church as he is my sanctuary.
Ten years ago, I saved his life. If only he could save mine.
Shannon is a born and raised Texan. She grew up inventing clever stories, usually to get herself out of trouble. Her mother was not amused. In junior high, she began writing fractured fairy tales from the villain’s point of view and that was the moment she knew that she was going to use her powers for evil instead of good.
In 2003, she moved to Denver and met the love of her life. After some relentless stalking and a few well-timed sarcastic remarks, the man eventually gave in to her charms and wifed her so hard. They welcomed a son in 2007 that they named after their favorite Marvel superhero, Spiderman.
Sick of seeing beautiful mountains through their window every day, the three escaped back to the desolate landscape of the west Texas desert in 2009. She welcomed her second son not long after and soon realized that being surrounded by three men was nothing at all like she’d imagined in her fantasies.
After an unplanned surgery in 2014 and a long pity party, she decided to pen a novel about the worst thing that could happen to a person in order to cheer herself up. She’s twisted like that. Thus, From This Day Forward was born and the rest, as they say, is history.
Not only does Shannon enjoy stalking people, she also has a fondness for being stalked. Find her on your favorite social media site to keep up with the latest schemes and shenanigans.
Through the Water is unlike any book I’ve had the pleasure of reading. I fell in love with the man that is Killian. My heart broke for the woman Ari was hiding. This story has mystery, drama, love, and turmoil. I found myself getting lost in these two.
Killian is a baseball player. After getting injured he ends up at True North rehab. Ari has been through an accident she doesn’t remember. She is at True North to recover also. But Ari can’t express herself. My heart broke for everything she’s been through. Ari is the daughter of a megachurch leader. I loved her thoughts on her dad. Killian and Ari have a rough start. One that ends in a misunderstanding, only to figure out they both need each other, more than they know.
Shannon Myers has done an amazing job telling this story. I honestly got lost in her words. I loved getting wrapped up in Killian and Ari. These two had a love that some can only dream of. I loved this storyline, a modern twist on one of my favorite fairytales. I loved the idea behind this book. Shannon has written one of my favorite stories of 2020.
