From best selling author AFN Clarke this powerful novel traces an emotional journey of self-discovery between a heart broken daughter and her estranged father. “Unforgettable”, “dramatic” and “uplifting”, it’s “an absolutely beautiful story that will stay with you long after the last word is read!”
When Nikki Kimble’s mother dies, she is left with a deep sense of loss and an aching desire to find her father Jake, who disappeared from her life when she was only three. She leaves Rhode Island in search of him, hoping for answers to a lifetime of questions. But when she finds him aboard a battered yacht in the Florida Keys, their worlds collide and sparks fly, threatening to destroy the fragile bond that hangs like a thread between them. As their lives start to unravel they find themselves in the path of a deadly hurricane, perilously adrift in a raging sea on Jake’s now damaged and leaking yacht, lost in the Gulf of Mexico. Fighting for survival they face off, and emotions run high as they are forced to discover the truth about each other that neither is ready to accept.
Dedicated by the author to his daughters, this deeply moving novel explores the fragility of human emotions and the strength of the human spirit to overcome seemingly impossible obstacles that life places in our way.
