(I am back for an update here!)
Before too long the Moore family finds themselves in the middle of crimes that need to be solved, which only adds to the mystery of this book. After all, this book didn't open up with how the two Moore boys died, only that as we read, we learn they are dead...and those left alive are suffering.
This is a wonderful story of forgiveness, and how God can move in lives. Not everything is as it seems.
I am so glad I got to read this book!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Breakers, a small community perched on the rocky coast of the Pacific Northwest, is draped with cold isolation that seems to mirror the hearts. As they settle into their new life, old grief settles with them. Matt is always on edge and easily angered, Irene is sad and pensive, and Casey is confused and defiant. They've once more set the stage for calamity. Into this mix comes Billy Thurber, a young drifter with his own conflicts, whose life unexpectedly entangles with the Moores'.
His arrival in Breakers parallels a rash of hateful and senseless crimes, and soon the whole town -- eager for someone to blame -- goes after Thurber with murderous intent. Out of this dangerous chaos, however, the Moores find unexpected grace and healing in a most unlikely way.
