Whose Waves These Are, by Amanda Dykes
Annie Bliss is called back to a small Maine town when her beloved great-uncle, Robert Bliss, falls sick. Many of the townspeople welcome her back, but some are leery, especially Fletch, the secretive harbor postman who seems far too close to her “GrandBob.” When Annie and Fletch discover a stack of rocks and a partially completed tower on Robert’s property, they are propelled into Robert’s past, his stories of love and family and grief stretching back to World War II. And how his simple words had helped bring comfort and healing to the nation.
I simply can not say enough good things about Whose Waves These Are. Just get it. Read it. Savor it. Ponder it. Let the beauty of Amanda Dykes‘s words resonate. This is the book everyone will talk about all year—lyrical, lovely, full of heart and heartache, secrets kept and revealed. These characters, this town, and their stories will seep into your soul and leave you wanting more. A novel of hope and reconciliation you won’t forget for a long time, probably not forever.
