All the Breaking Waves
From the bestselling author of Everything We Keep comes a gripping tale of long-buried secrets, the strength of forgiveness, and the healing power of returning home for good.

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.

    Oh man, this book is a perfect example of why I love mother-daughter relationships in women's lit. Almost on every page there was a line of dialogue that indicated some maternal instinct, and the way that Molly interacted with her daughter Cassie literally melted my heart. In this para...

    I see I'm in the minority here with my three stars, but that's okay. I did enjoy it, but I had some issues with it. Most of them would be spoilers, however. I'll just say I didn't find the characters quite as likeable as I should have. That would have been the day I would have dared to...
