Londonderry Dreaming

I received a copy of Londonderry Dreaming by Christine Lindsay from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Acclaimed New York artist, Naomi Boyd, and music therapist, Keith Wilson, loved one another five years ago, until her grandfather separated them.
That root of bitterness keeps them apart until a letter from Keith’s grandmother, Ruth, draws Naomi to Londonderry to find she’s too late. Ruth has passed on. After the death of his beloved grandmother, Keith has also come to Londonderry only to open the door to his past . . .Naomi...beautiful as ever, the girl who broke his heart.
A mysterious painting in Ruth’s attic brings up questions about their grandparents’ entwined past and their own broken romance. More comfortable with the unspoken languages of art and music, Naomi and Keith find it difficult to share their old hurts and true feelings.
Will the majestic coastline of Northern Ireland inspire them to speak the words to bring peace to their grandparents’ memory and to rekindle love?
This took me a little while to get into but once I did it was hard to put down.  Keith Wilson goes back to Londonderry to help clean out his grandmothers house.  Naomi Boyd goes back to Londonderry because Ruth, Keith's grandmother, sent her a letter asking her to come see her.  What Naomi doesn't know is she's too late to talk to Ruth, who recently passed away.  Naomi offers to help Keith go through Ruth's house.  Can they work together and find a new way back together?
