Struggling with loss and regret, Trista sets out for North Carolina’s Outer Banks, hoping to find peace in her stormy life. Fate and an old golden retriever set her on a path toward healing with an unlikely hero, the man that the locals call “Duck.” Despite his careless and irresponsible behavior, Trista is drawn to him.
Trista discovers that Duck is haunted by the ghosts of his own shattered past. Desperate for help, she is faced with the necessity of placing her hopes and her life in the hands of this man that many blame for the death of his best friend. As Hurricane Renee bears down on the Outer Banks, Trista and Duck drive a wave-battered boat into the teeth of the storm. Each one hopes to conquer the tempest that rages around them and the tempest that rages within.

Charming, Relatable, and Empowering
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Once I started I couldn’t put it down. Seward creates relatable characters that you can’t help but sympathize with, then pits them against problems that seem overwhelming without being over the top. The result is masterful; the suspense builds as the characters come face-to-face with their personal demons, then through the resolution Mr. Seward reminds us of the prevailing power of redemption and love as the dots connect through to the last page. The story is so relatable that you can’t help but feel emboldened by the vast progress each character makes in the face of adversity. Can’t wait to read #3.
