About the Book:
Twelve years later, Molly has created a new life for herself and her eight-year-old daughter, Cassie. The art history professor crafts jewelry as unique and weathered as the surf-tumbled sea glass she collects, while raising her daughter in a safe and loving environment—something Molly never had. But when Cassie is plagued by horrific visions and debilitating nightmares, Molly is forced to return to the one place she swore she’d never move back to—home to Pacific Grove.
A riveting exploration of love, secrets, and motherhood, All the Breaking Waves is the poignant story of a woman who discovers she must confront her past, let go of her guilt, and summon everything in her power to save her daughter.

Drowned in a Sea of Flashbacks
My problem started when I was being inundated with flashbacks. It wasn’t coming from just one person, such as the main female character, Molly, but from all sides. There were flashbacks from the main male character, Owen, and Molly’s grandmother. And each chapter is marked by the time of day, afternoon, midmorning, etc. It felt like a badly written psychic version of 24.
These are just the major reasons why I couldn’t get past chapter 12. Unfortunately, it joined my small DNF pile, because of the constant wavering between flashbacks, timestamps, and the general loss of continuity. I am a firm believer in redemption, and one day I will give Kerry a second chance at winning me over. As the saying goes, “To each their own.”
