Driftwood Bay by Irene Hannon is the newest addition to the Hope Harbor novels. The story encompasses a great many issues in a short amount of time. The lead adults in the story are Jeannette Mason and Dr. Logan West, but in many ways the little girls in the book steal the stage.
Molly is under the care of her Uncle Logan following a series of incidents which have left her without parents or a grandmother. Her emotional challenges keep readers engaged and caught up in her story. The adults in Molly’s life have their own issues, but really it seems like Molly is the star of this book. She is the one for who the heart aches.
If these stories are not enough to tug on the heartstrings, Hannon introduces a refugee family from Syria. They too have some difficult challenges ahead of them. The beautiful part of this book is how each of the characters has the opportunity to be a blessing to someone else–even if the person was not aware they needed the blessing.
Readers familiar with the Hope Harbor novels will be delighted to have the opportunity to return to this peaceful coastal town. Romantics will be satisfied and those cheering for Molly and her search for a friend will be rewarded.
