Silver Bay by Jojo Moyes is another shinning gem from this author. The story involves two worlds, London and Silver Bay (Australia). Mike is from London and he will be going to Silver Bay to check out on a development contract for his company; Liza is from London, but ran to Silver Bay and her Aunt Kathy’s arms 5 years prior for mysterious heart wrenching reasons; Kathy is known for catching a shark when she was 17 and now at 76 she has been running her family’s bed and breakfast hotel in Silver Bay; Hannah is 11 and only knows loss: the loss of her sister, the loss of her mother’s sanity, and the loss of freedom; Greg’s wife has just left him and Liza is still running cold around him, what does a man have to do to catch a break and be happy? This is the story of how lives can intersect at the best and worst times, how one action/word/decision can affect many, forgiveness, love, compassion, and redemption. I didn’t cry, I didn’t call all my friends about this book like I did for Me Before You; however, as time passed after I finished I started thinking and reevaluating things in my life. This is a book that commands you to reflect, but it seeps slowly and unrelenting into your subconscious in Jojo Moyes’ true fashion. This book will compel you to feel.
4 out of 5 stars. Thank You Net Galley.
