Reader's Review : All the Breaking Waves is a mesmerizing, heartfelt book about family secrets, lost love, and the sacrifices we all make for the people that we love. Molly Brennan's young daughter, Cassie, has been plagued by horrifying nightmares; nightmares which are preceded by premonitions about her friends at school. Seeking help from her grandmother, Molly reluctantly returns home, a place filled with tragic memories for Molly; a place where Molly must learn to reconcile her past in order to provide a future for her daughter. Like Cassie, Molly and her mother and grandmother all possess special abilities; abilities which Molly has suppressed out of shame, and out of the fear that if she doesn't control them she endangers those she loves. This book takes us on a journey that is fraught with tension as well as tender, heart aching moments. There were times that my heart was in my throat, pulse-pounding, holding my breath; and other quiet, poignant moments that made my heart melt. This book is filled with very special characters, characters who will take up big chunks of your heart. At the heart of this story is love; romantic love, enduring love, steadfast love; and most of all, the love that a mother feels for her children, a love that forces difficult decisions; a love that will protect them and guide them and keep them safe.

Description : After a harrowing accident tore her family apart, Molly Brennan fled from the man she loved and the tragic mistake she made. 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.
