Winter Haven & North Island
Tyler Leigh Martin
Devon J. Lecusken
Winter Haven is a coming of age new adult novel that takes place in the fictional town of Winter Haven, in the very real place of North Island (Vancouver Island, Canada).
The moods of this novel are loneliness, alienation and boredom. It's written as a throwback novel, and deals with coming of age themes of first love, mistakes and illness and heartbreak.
Its sequel, North Island, takes place six years after the original novel and completes the story.
Here's a link to an actress I think physically embodies Tyler Martin: Jessica Parker Kennedy. Here's a link to an actor I think embody Devon Lecusken: Tyler Hoechlin.
This is the music I was listening to when I began this coming of age romance story, and forgive me if it's slow and cheesy, but this was the mood I was in during my teenage years, and this is the mood I wanted for Winter Haven.
