Summary

After a childhood as unpredictable as the flip of a coin, Faith Sterling has finally found her comfort zone in the kitchen of an upscale Manhattan restaurant. A workaholic chef, at least there she's in control. So when her free-spirited and often-gullible mother, Connie, calls to announce that she's won a bed-and-breakfast on the Jersey Shore, Faith's patience boils over. Convinced the contest is a scam, she rushes to Wave's End to stop Connie from trading her steady job for an uncertain future.

When a hurricane ravages the coast, Faith is torn between supporting the shore rescue and bailing out her beleaguered boss. But the storm dredges up deceptions and emotional debris that threaten to destroy the inn's future and her fragile bonds with her mother.

As the women struggle to salvage both the inn and their relationship, Faith begins to see herself and Connie in a new light - and to realize that some moments are better left to chance.

Wonderful Summer Read

I loved Patricia Perry Donovan’s AT WAVES END. I feel in love with the characters in the story and how their ordinary lives were transformed by tragedy. Long held secrets were revealed and what seemed like a burden suddenly flowered into deep respect, love and utter awe. THIS WAS A WONDERFUL READ.
