The hardest decision for a person to face is knowing when to let go. Hearts are broken, children grow up, the people we love and admire pass on. Life happens. It's inevitable. The pain is real, but in dwelling on the bad moments means missing out on some of the best. Ms. Cole does a beautiful job of relaying that message in Dreaming at Seaside. Caden is a single father struggling with grief, guilt, loneliness and a difficult child. Bella is a woman determined to live life to the fullest. Against a beautiful backdrop and deeply moving scenarios, sparks fly, hearts get broken and difficult choices are made. However, the one thing that remains the same the lasting impact of the lessons learned.
Moran gives voice to the frustrations of love, the heartache of loss and the turmoils of taking a risk. Caden and Bella are a reminder that despite the pitfalls, love is a rewarding experience.
