Meet Patricia Perry Donovan, author of At Wave's End and Deliver Her, on Monday, August 21st at 6:30pm.
At Wave's End
When her estranged mother wins a Jersey Shore bed and breakfast in a lottery and heads east to survey the prize, Faith Sterling fears her mother has fallen victim to yet another scam. Their visit to the B & B confirms her suspicions. Wave’s End is not as advertised—it's nowhere near the beach, it's sorely in need of an overhaul, and its finances are shaky. But despite Faith’s attempts to dissuade her mother, Connie Sterling is determined to try her hand at running the inn.
A frustrated Faith heads back to Brooklyn, dreading the havoc her mother's proximity will wreak on her well-ordered and successful life. She doesn't have to wait long. When a supersized hurricane pummels the East Coast, Faith reluctantly agrees to return and help her mother run Wave’s End…temporarily.
But just as inn life settles into a comfortable rhythm, a grievous secret about Wave’s End surfaces, threatening the inn’s future and fraying the already fragile mother-daughter bonds.
