We probably all know families like the Helms family. One parent is a tyrant and the other tries in every way possible to keep things on an even keel. One child rebels and takes off to make their own way, whether or not that way is good or bad. Another child tries to work within the framework of the family, hoping to eventually be fully accepted and appreciated. And then one child is the turtle, basically trying to hide in their shell from all that is going on in the household. Maybe you grew up in that kind of family. Your family may not have had the wealth and power of the Helms family, and maybe the tyrant only affected those within the household, but the tyrant wreaked enough havoc on the children to have a life-changing impact on their lives. What causes a parent to become impossible to live with? Is the other parent ever justified to walk out on a situation like that? Did Beth leave Jack and move into an old run-down apartment because she no longer loved him? Did Buddy walk away from his father’s company because he hated the man? Why did Sylvie leave? The family situation was disturbing, but seeing how a man like Jack can practically rip a ministry apart is heart-rending. No person should ever have the control over a church or ministry that he held. Although much of the story evolved around the relationship between Jack and Buddy, Beth was the real hero. The closing words of the book sum it up better than anything else.

This is the third book in what I would call a loose series (the books are linked, but not strongly). You do not need to have read Miramar Bay or Firefly Cove first. I liked this book the best of the three. To me it has a different flavor than the first two, which each had some elements of almost fantasy in them. This is full of the nitty-gritty of life. It took me well into the second chapter before I got the various characters and their relationships straight in my mind. Then the action ramped up, and it was hard to put the book down. It's not an easy or relaxing book to read. However, there are some good, deep truths in it that may help a reader face his/her own past and come through to a beginning of healing. This is not an overtly Christian book. However, it is built on a foundation of spiritual truth that Christians will easily recognize. I think one reason I enjoyed this book is that it's set along the central California coast, which is where I live. However, you don't need to be familiar with the locale to enjoy the book. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Kensington Books through NetGalley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
