ABOUT THE BOOK
When Holton lost his wife, Adele, in a freak accident, he shut himself off from the world, living a life of seclusion, making drifwood sculptures and drowning his pain in gin. Until twenty-three-year-old Libby knocks on his door, asking for a job and claiming to be a friend of his late wife. When he discovers Libby is actually his late wife’s illegitimate daughter, given up for adoption without his knowledge, his life is turned upside down as he struggles to accept that the wife he’d given saint status to was not the woman he thought he knew.
Together Holton and Libby form an unlikely bond as the two struggle to learn the identity of Libby’s father and the truth about Adele, themselves, and each other.

Gina Holmes is a gifted author, and Driftwood Tides is another wonderful release. Her novels reach deep and explore the issues that leave people raw and vulnerable. Libby immediately tugged at my heart as she discovered that her life wasn't what she thought it was and began the quest to find out who birthed her and why she was adopted. Vivid scenes with heart-wrenching moments kept me glued to the pages. Like the tide that washes upon the shore of Nags Head, this story will splash across your heart and stir your soul with its themes of belonging and forgiveness. Don't miss it!
Be sure to come back tomorrow, when I'll be sharing a Q&A with Gina Holmes
