Review: All the Breaking Waves by Kerry Lonsdale




After a harrowing accident tore her family apart, Molly Brennan fled from the man she loved and the tragic mistake she made.

Twelve years later, Molly has created a new life for herself and her eight-year-old daughter, Cassie. The art history professor crafts jewelry as unique and weathered as the surf-tumbled sea glass she collects, while raising her daughter in a safe and loving environment—something Molly never had. But when Cassie is plagued by horrific visions and debilitating nightmares, Molly is forced to return to the one place she swore she’d never move back to—home to Pacific Grove.

A riveting exploration of love, secrets, and motherhood, All the Breaking Waves is the poignant story of a woman who discovers she must confront her past, let go of her guilt, and summon everything in her power to save her daughter.

 

My Thoughts

Such an amazing story of love, family and a bond between a mother and daughter that can never be broken, or can it?  This story will capture you from page one and you will fall in love with this waterside tale.

Molly Brennan had run away from her past, and never looked back until now.  Her daughter Cassie is more like her than she would ever have imagine and she needs her help.  Molly has a successful teaching career but realizes that she has no choice but to return to her little shore town of Pacific Grove and her grandmother whom she hasn't seen in years.

Molly knows that by returning she is going to have to revisit her past fears - her parents tragic ending, the love of her life that she pushed away and the feel of her powers that she has tried to ignore for quite some time.

But Cassie's happiness and well-being surpass Molly's fears and she heads home but only for a few weeks. 

What will she find when she arrives?  Will her fears drown her and take her last breathe?  Will Cassie's fears and images of her mother's pending death be her end?

This book is amazing from page 1 and you will not be able to put it down.
