The night of a college party, Kaitlin didn’t expect unprotected sex or a surprise pregnancy. What would she do? How was she going to tell her parents? But a torrential rainstorm ended up being her parents’ demise, destroying Kaitlin, a boat they built and often sailed on. When Kaitlin hears the terrible news, she rushes back home to her grandparents to mourn the loss and take on a new challenge. Readers would definitely admire Kaitlin’s quiet strength and be endeared by the family’s close bond. Story was well-written and full of emotion, certainly following the literary prose, but it also remained long-winded, which was waning on my interest.

Critique: A deftly crafted and absorbing novel from beginning to end, "Kaitlin's Mooring" showcases author Cary V. Azzara's genuine flair for originality and character driven storytelling. While unreservedly recommended, especially for community library Contemporary General Fiction collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that "Kaitlin's Mooring" is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $3.99).

Kaitlin’s Mooring is a stunning piece of literature that enthralled, entertained and enchanted me from the very first page! Everything about this contemporary piece of fiction was incredible; the characters, as well as the beautiful setting of Maine and the other places the reader gets to experience and the phenomenal literature courtesy of the excellent author Carey V. Azzara, made me fall madly in love with this book. Kaitlin’s Mooring is a piece of fiction that will captivate readers from all genres thanks to the many themes that are interwoven between the pages. The themes explored throughout the book are of a hard-hitting and poignant nature, but this should not deter you from reading the book because the story is so much more than a story of loss and is, in fact, a story of hope too and so it really should not be missed. Kaitlin’s Mooring is an emotional read that deals with loss but it is also a story of hope, and its beautiful, poignant story will stay in your memory for a long time after finishing it. Kaitlin’s Mooring will introduce the reader to many characters, but one of the core characters is Kaitlin Deveau, a pregnant twenty-year-old who while in Boston, receives a call from her grandfather Henry who has some terrible news. This leads Kaitlin to pack up and return to Maine and it is here, with the help of Kaitlin’s son Christopher, that Kaitlin and the rest of the Deveau family begin to heal. Henry becomes one of the leading figures in the family, and he takes Chris under his wing and teaches him many life lessons. However, the story develops further, and soon Chris, as well as his adopter sister Susan, will have to save their parents due to something and this book lovers is the premise of this emotionally charged and captivating novel. The story that unfolds throughout Kaitlin’s Mooring is a profoundly moving one with many profound themes laced throughout the book. I admit that I was guilty of assuming from the description that Kaitlin’s Mooring would be too hard-hitting to read but when I started to read it I knew full well that this book was not that kind of read. Instead, Kaitlin’s Mooring is a poignant novel full of powerful and even inspiring themes which are all excellently explored and weaved well together by the phenomenal author Carey V. Azzara. Carey V. Azzara is the exceptional author of Kaitlin’s Mooring and I admit, I am gutted that I have not discovered his work sooner! Kaitlin’s Mooring is the perfect read for me as books such as this one make for the perfect escape. Azzara knows how to flawlessly transport his reader into the story as well as to Maine (which is one of my favorite places of all time!) because his descriptions are glorious and will correctly paint a picture of the isolated but beautiful landscape. To summarize my thoughts on the compelling novel that is Kaitlin’s Mooring; I would say if you are a reader who is tired of reading the same old books that are lackluster and forgettable then take a chance with this one because I promise you now that you will not be disappointed! It is an extraordinary piece of contemporary fiction that will take you on a memorable and unforgettable journey that should not be missed, and so I have to award Kaitlin’s Mooring five stars!

Kaitlin’s Mooring by Carey V. Azzara is a beautiful story about relationships and family. This book was surprisingly good and I savoured reading every minute of it. The overall story was a feast and the writing was pretty good and the characters strong and believable. The character’s inner conflicts seemed real and they complemented the carefully woven tale very well. The beginning was slow but built up steadily and the ending proved to be apt. Except for a few minor pacing issues, I enjoyed the book thoroughly. I’d recommend it to all contemporary fiction readers and to those readers who want to explore new authors and books.

Kaitlin's Mooring had me intrigued throughout the entire novel. Being a female myself, I was able to relate to Kaitlin and her internal struggles from the very first page. This novel took you on an emotional roller coaster but also gave you a sense hope for the future and for better days. I really liked how descriptive this book was because it made you relate to the characters much more since you could visualize the setting so deeply. I think everyone should read this book at least once in their life since it teaches you a few life lessons along the way! Overall I give this novel 5/5!
