“…Is the female as unfathomable as the ocean’s depth?”
This is the finale of the trilogy about Violet and Bud Rose, living on Long Island with Bud’s little daughter Starfish, and the extended family that has grown around them including Starfish’s biological grandparents. Star seems a happy girl, however, unknown to her her biological mother is lurking.
Much like the fictional hurricane, Violet is reactive and concerned about the daughter she was “saddled with” when she married Bud. She’d do anything to protect her Starfish. And add Mookie the dog and they are unstoppable.
Although this is the finale of a trilogy, it can be read as a stand-alone due to Elizabeth Cooke’s thoroughness and the way she writes. Worth a read. Recommended 4/5
