Haven Point: A Novel
Skye Demarest is returning to Haven Point. She’s been there before, as a child fleeing her alcoholic mother, but never felt connected to the place. Now, after her mother Annie’s death, Skye returns to scatter her ashes. She yearns to understand why Annie hated Haven Point, and what drove her to become the person that Skye knew.
Maren Demarest has said a lot of goodbyes in her life. This time, it’s to her daughter. She knows that Annie passed along her opinions of Haven Point to Skye, but Maren also knows that Skye doesn’t know the whole story. Maren hopes to reveal the truth to Skye, and maybe explore her own grief in the process.
As secrets and betrayals swirl around Haven Point, Skye will learn exactly what happened that day of destiny – and what Annie’s past might mean for Skye’s future.
This book was a dramatic exploration of small-town dynamics, buried secrets, life’s mountains of joy and sorrow, loss, and letting go. Skye and Maren were interesting characters with fascinating backstories that were explained in great detail, and I liked reading their chapters. I will look forward to more books by this author in the future!
