All the Breaking Waves by Kerry Lonsdale

Release Date is December 6, 2016 - Available for Pre-Order

From the Back Cover:

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.

My Thoughts:

ALL THE BREAKING WAVES begins with Molly comforting her daughter in the middle of the night after the young girl suffers another devastating nightmare that acts as a premonition of a serious accident and possible death of a school friend.  This isn't the first time Cassie has had one of these premonitions.  And the next one involves her own mother.  As Molly prepares for her own death while trying to find a way to alter the inevitable, old memories of her own psychic abilities come into play.  Will she be able to forgive herself for what happened in the past?  Can she reclaim the love of her life, her soul mate, Owen, or will her fears force her away from him once again?

Kerry Lonsdale masterfully created a story deep in emotional conflict while emphasizing a mother's love and a sense of the need to return home to fight the main character's inner demons.  This had a well-written story line with lots of twists and turns.  When you think you have it all figured out, something totally unexpected happens.  

Once I started reading this book, I didn't put it down until I read the very last page.  I heartily recommend it!
