Whose Waves These Are – Amanda Dykes
Don’t get stuck in the dark, Bob.” It doesn’t make sense. Maybe he doesn’t know what he’s saying. But right now Robert would promise his twin anything. “I won’t,” he promises, shaking his head. “There’s a whole lotta light,” Roy says. “Go there instead.”
Reminders of not being stuck in the dark are hard to hear when the dark is all around, but Annie knows she must respond to the ad that is calling her home. Home to a place she’s worked so hard to forget and avoid. But home she goes, because GrandpaBob needs her, turns out she needed it too…
It’s not everyday that you open a novel and get so fully drawn in to the characters – and in this case, even the village of Ansel-By-The-Sea is a character – and the stories they have to tell.
Transporting the reader between wartime USA and almost present day, we see the outcome of decisions made, life choices followed. Amanda Dykes so beautifully weaves their stories together, it becomes one wonderfully crafted tapestry. Annie, in helping her ailing GrandpaBob meets and learns so much from Ed, Annie and Jeremiah and through it all – learns about the God Bob loves so much.
As one who lives her life through stories, I was beautifully reminded that each and every one is vital to creating who I am, and who those I encounter are. What a treasured time I spent with these pages. Thank you Amanda – I’ll be back for more!
