Good story... the Water Philosophy was wierd. I kind of skipped over the water remarks. Jayne Ann Krentz has a tendency to touch base on strange subject matter, so if you read her books, it's not that off-the-wall. Liked Charity and the secondary characters a lot. 4 stars.
I like Jayne Krentz, although some of her earlier work has a touch of old-fashioned physical dominance by the male (in particular, the threat of spanking, usually, which just annoys me). This book doesn't have that slightly outdated and misogynistic feel to it. The relationship between Elias and Charity is allowed to build, although one never has a doubt that they are meant for each other. The suspense in the book is genuine suspense and Elias' self-imposed isolation and remoteness makes for an interesting hero.
