My Rating :
Ruth has a secret that she can’t hide forever. Dora wonders if she can ever truly escape where she comes from, even when good luck suddenly comes her way. Alyce is trying to reconcile her desire to dance with the life she’s always known on her family’s fishing boat. Hank and his brothers decide it’s safer to run away than to stay home—until one of them ends up in terrible danger.
Four very different lives are about to become entangled. This is a book about people who try to save each other—and how sometimes, when they least expect it, they succeed.
I went into this book kinda blindly. I had taken interest in it a while back but since really kinda forgot what it was about. However I knew I wanted to read it so when I found it at the Book Outlet Box Sale, I grabbed it.
This book was super enjoyable. I loved so many things about it and I just adored it. These characters really did capture my heart and I felt for all of them. I think this is the first book to truly be able to leave me unable to pick a favourite character. This book is told in different perspectives and each of them is very different and you really can tell the difference from each character. No one gets lost in all the different views. There is also good friendships in this book and bad family relationships. We all know I love a good book that show that family is not blood. Your built up family is just as important as your blood family, and this book captures it so well, especially with Dora.
I really enjoyed how every single character cross paths with each other in this book. Every one knows everyone, not in a super close best friend way, but enough to recognize each other and I really loved that.
This book really left me constantly thinking about. I would be thinking about it while not reading it and was very anxious to see what came next for whoever I was reading about next. In fact I still think about this book. I really enjoyed it.
If you are looking for a feel good emotional read, you need to pick up this book. Please let me know if you have read this book or plan to read this book, and what your thoughts were.
