A young woman’s search for her estranged father, raises unwanted
demons from the past and more adventure than either of them could have
imagined. Especially dedicated by this best selling author to his
daughters, this unforgettable, dramatic and moving novel will stay
with you long after the last page is turned.
Nikki Kimble was brought up by her mother in the lap of luxury, with
every conceivable material thing she could ever want, except for the
presence and love of her father Jake, a former bestselling author who
disappeared from her life when she was three years old. All she has
are fleeting memories and a romantic notion of him gleaned from the
central character in his novels.
On the death of her mother, Nikki decides to search for her father,
and when she finds him, drunk on board a battered yacht in the Florida
Keys her shattered illusions turn to anger. Demons from the past
threaten to overtake them both as they embark on an intensely personal
journey of self-discovery.
As father and daughter face-off in an emotionally charged atmosphere,
adrift on a leaking yacht in the middle of a massive storm, their
fury, sadness and sense of loss is countered by that mysterious and
precious bond that exists between a father and a daughter, and a deep
seated human need for love, belonging and new beginnings. Their only
hope for the future is by healing the past. But the burning question
remains. Will the truth really set them free, or will it create so
much pain that it shatters them into tiny pieces, never to be whole
This dramatic and inspirational novel explores universal themes of
family relationships, love, hate, betrayal, self-realisation and the
power and strength of the Human Spirit to overcome seemingly
impossible obstacles that Life places in our way.
