Were the answers she sought in front of her?

Lainey had to believe they were because she refused to stop searching until she uncovered the secret her mother never got to tell her.

After her mother’s funeral, she was left with more questions than answers—like why no one from her mother’s family came to the service. Her father had assured her that her mother was an only child and that her parents had passed long ago. Lainey couldn’t stop thinking that there had to be cousins or old friends—someone to tell her the stories of her mother’s past—someone to keep her mother’s memory alive.

She had so many questions. Her father refused to answer any of them. His stony silence drove a wedge between them. They maintained a superficial relationship. He’d ask how her day was and she’d say fine. She’d ask how his business was going and he’d say fine. It was always the same stilted conversation.

It’s the reason she’d become a travel blogger. She couldn’t stand the tension between them. It’s also the reason she hadn’t told him about her side trip to Bluestar Island.

Lainey rode a ferry from Boston out to Bluestar Island. Strong wind and big swells in the ocean kept the ferry in constant motion. Her stomach moved up and down with the sea. She swallowed hard as she attempted to keep her nausea under control. Sailing wasn’t for her.

Trying to distract herself, she turned until she could see her destination off in the distance. Since she’d never heard of Bluestar Island, she’d had to do some internet sleuthing before setting off on this adventure.

The photos that had been posted online had intrigued her. Since she was already in Boston and the island wasn’t too far offshore, she decided this expedition was in order. She needed to find out if the BS she’d found in her mother’s journal stood for Bluestar Island. If not, she’d keep searching until she found the answers she sought.

She once more adjusted the oversized black handbag on her shoulder. With her hand gripping the straps of the handbag so it wouldn’t slip off again and her other hand gripping the handle of her luggage, she moved to the metal railing as the ferry neared the island. The salty sea air sent her brown hair whipping around. Her finger swept the strands off to the side and tucked them behind her ear, not that it would stay there long in this wind.

She lifted the camera that hung around her neck. She’d been wearing it for so many months now that it felt as though it was a part of her, and she could hardly remember what it was like not to have a camera at the ready.

She snapped a picture of the water as the wind whipped it up into swell after swell. Her handbag slipped to the bend in her arm. She suppressed a sigh as she yanked it back on her shoulder. She continued to snap photos.

The late morning sunshine bounced off the surge of water, twinkling like a million diamonds scattered across the ocean. In that moment, Lainey felt the tension in her neck and shoulders ease. Even if this voyage was yet one more dead end on her extensive journey, it looked like a great place to spend the next couple of days. Perhaps it could be the focus of a new article for a magazine that had started to buy her travel spotlights.

She lowered the camera as Bluestar came into full view. As she once again adjusted her handbag on her shoulder, she continued to stare at the island. She didn’t know what she’d been expecting but the island appeared to be quite large. Her research on the internet said the population was approximately 9,500 full-time residents.

Overhead the seagulls spread their wings wide as they coasted through the sky. They made it look so effortless and relaxing. She snapped their photo. The birds squawked as though welcoming them to the island.
