In ALL THE BREAKING WAVES (Lake Union Publishing) by bestselling author, Kerry Lonsdale, Molly Brennan flees her home and the man she has grown up loving, after both of her parents die on the same day swearing she’ll never return.
Twelve years later, Molly has created a new life for herself and her eight-year-old daughter, Cassie. She teaches art history and designs sea-glass jewelry, which she calls “trash turned into treasure.” She raises her daughter Cassie in the safe environment she didn’t grow up in. But when Cassie starts having nightmares and visions of bad things happening in the future, Molly is forced to confront her past and return to Pacific Grove.
ALL THE BREAKING WAVES is a kind of magical mystery story incorporating a bit of the paranormal. It’s ambitious in the number of themes it confronts: motherhood, grief, forgiveness, death, acceptance, love, family and sacrifice. Kerry has a deft hand at writing generational maternal relationships; never hindering her characters decision-making, whether right or wrong. Eventually allowing ALL THE BREAKING WAVES to come to a beautiful ending, readers will enjoy.
ALL THE BREAKING WAVES will be published Tuesday, December 6th. Make sure to pre-order your copy from your local independent bookstore.
