The emotions flying between the two women who tell their story here is as dramatic as the Appalachian Trail and as tumultuous as the Atlantic Ocean. These natural elements are a perfect backdrop for the revelations of love which both repel and engage them.

Readers' Favorite

Madison lets her characters pull no punches -- we see the rage, frustration, and aggression Alex expresses on being rejected and can sense Cate's fear of rejection and commitment which has closed her off to the possibility of a loving relationship. All the while, each of them is

aware of the passage of time as the thirty-somethings come to realize their existence in this life is a finite thing. Her nature descriptions of Cate’s sailing adventures and Alex’s Appalachian Trail hike are first rate and make this a must-read for anyone interested in adventure fiction. In the

Direction of the Sun is a brilliant character study and an engaging and powerful romance. It’s most highly recommended.
