When a new family moves into the house across the street, Kathryn Price has no clue just how much her life will soon become intertwined with theirs—and what fate has in store for her and Carson, the only child of the gracious Ferris family.Kathryn soon realizes that she and Carson have a lot in common. Not only will they be starting their freshman year of high school together at the end of the summer, Carsons mother is dying—something Kathryn has already experienced, years before. Before long, theyre inseparable. For Kathryn and Carson, everything seems nearly perfect—until their happiness is overshadowed by the specter of Huntingtons disease, which threatens to destroy everything they hold dear.Ferris Wheel is a compelling contemporary drama that is difficult to pigeonhole. On one level, the story is a poignant, slice-of-life examination of the extraordinary relationship that gradually develops between two young people, and the devastating disease that eventually overshadows their lives; but it’s so much more than that. The love between Kathryn Price and Carson Ferris is rock solid, and much more innocently restrained then that which is common in the modern romance genre.The story ventures onto tragic ground when a painful fate overwhelms them and comes to define their lives, threatening not just their health but their wills as well. This isn’t happily-ever-after territory, though most of the story explores the joy and rewards of a mature relationship between a man and woman deeply in love- and despite it’s dark turn, it ends with a glimmer of genuine hope. However you care to categorize it, this character driven tale will make you sit up and take notice, and is likely to bring you to the verge of tears more than once.
