Review: The Breaking Wave by Katherine Hayton

The Breaking Wave
by Katherine Hayton

Pages: 62
Format: eARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

Goodreads:  After their daughter is ripped from them by the Boxing Day Tsunami, Christine and Gary Emmett hunt through Phuket, Thailand, trying with increasing desperation to find Tamsin; or find her body. 

When a village contact reaches out to say he's found Tamsin, alive, they make a journey. A journey that could see them reconnect with their lost daughter or face the truth that she's lost to them, forever.

Kritters Thoughts:  What I would consider a short story, this book takes place in a short amount of time after the major tsunami that devastated Thailand.  A couple reunites after the tragedy, but can't find their daughter so they desperately search every day for her.  

I have heard a few stories about Thailand, but this book really described the aftermath and what families did to reunite and rebuild after the devastation.  I knew going into this book that it would be short and sweet, but as it was going, I definitely could have used a few more pages and maybe some more detail about the actual tsunami and maybe even more detail about how they reunited.  

If you would like to read a quick read about the after effects of the tsunami and the humanity behind it.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row
