    A Riveting Read!

    In this novel, three families each touched by their own separate tragedies, will forever be bound together in a tangled web of betrayal, love, and forgiveness. Daniel and Vanessa Parker have a struggling marriage that is only made worse by the problems they’re having with their teenage son, Quentin. To give his marriage and Quentin the second chance they desperately need, Daniel takes Quentin on a voyage sailing around the world. His hope is not only that Quentin will benefit from the voyage, but that Vanessa & Daniel will be able to rediscover their love for each other and save their marriage after the voyage is done. Ismail is a young Somali pirate that has seen his fair share of tragedy. Not only has he seen family and friends murdered before his very eyes, but the man who committed these murders also kidnapped his sister, Yusmin. Whether good or bad, every choice Ismail has made since Yusmin’s kidnapping has been to put him on a path to rescue her. Paul Derrick is the government’s top hostage negotiator. His sister, Megan, is a well-respected criminal defense lawyer in Washington. The two siblings share a deep bond that was born out of a family tragedy that has affected them throughout their entire lives. Oh, this was a wonderful story! I was initially intrigued by the description of the book and I was hooked immediately. There’s a strong theme of familial bonds and loyalty that is just beautiful throughout the book. I immediately found myself swept up in Daniel & Quentin’s story of circumnavigation and then being transfixed with Ismail & Yusmin’s story later on in the book. And about halfway through the book the author brilliantly unearths more of the story to give the reader a deeper glance and it truly kept me hanging on in suspense until the very end. I appreciated the separate points of view from the characters that gave their stories an added depth as well. This was a riveting, multi-layered story that is sure to entertain and keep you in suspense. I also have to add that with 10 or less cuss words in the entirety of its 400-something pages, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others. I really appreciate that while the author was able to describe some harsh realities, especially for women, there was no graphic sex or violence. I was shocked at how “clean” the book was. It’s truly hard to find a good book without all the junk in it and this book passes with flying colors. While it’s difficult to leave a detailed review and communicate just how well-written and fantastic this story is without giving away any spoilers, I can for sure say that I highly recommend this book and am making it a priority to get my hands on the other two books by this author! (I received and ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. The above opinions are entirely my own.)
