The Wave by Kristen Crusoe



About The Book:

It should have been a relaxing day at the beach for Dr. Clair Mercer and her family. But an argument with husband Adam distracts her from watching their four-year-old autistic son, and tragedy strikes when a sneaker wave sweeps him away. Clair's well-ordered life is plunged into madness, and after attempting to murder her husband, she walks into the ocean. Arrested, charged, and awaiting trial on a locked psychiatric unit, can she discover a path to forgiveness, for herself and the husband she tried to kill? The Wave is a beautifully-written debut novel that explores the emotional complexity of family life and how suffering, self-realization, and the power of love can heal even the most wounded bonds of trust.


My Thoughts

Just like that...little Devon was gone..A relaxing day at the beach turned into a absolute nightmare with the blink of an eye. Dr Clair Mercer sat on the beach with her eyes on her son...trying to listen to her husband's conversation with his girlfriend on his cellphone...her thoughts wander...a wave sweeps her son away..just that quick..

The death of her son rips their family apart. As they struggle with their grief this tore at my heart. Clair is determined to make her herself and her husband pay for the loss of their child. The guilt is overwhelming..to the point that she can't function...but she must, even if it means murder...

The writing was beautiful and the journey was highly emotional. We all need to step back and appreciate life and those around us. A very quick read that had me reaching for the tissues!

Thank you so much to Suzy Approved Tours for having me along on this book tour! Thank so to Kristen Crusoe for this gorgeous gifted copy!
