"A heartwarming tale"
When they were younger, Dana and Lily taught sailing in
Newport. Dana also painted oceanscapes as she dreamed of
becoming an artist. The siblings even saved the life of
student Sam Trevor, who vowed to keep his two females
saviors safe from harm.
Over two decades later, Dana is sailing the seven seas
painting wherever she goes. Lily married Mark and they
have two preteen children. However, the world turns upside
down when Lily and Mark drown and Dana comes home to raise
her two nieces struggling with their sudden loss. Dana,
also grappling with her sibling's death, wonders how to
raise two grieving preadolescents when Sam, an oceanography
professor at Yale, enters her life again. Sam remembers
his youthful pledge to the sisters and provides mental and
logistical support to Dana especially with trying to
understand the mystery of how two-experienced "Mer" people
drown. As they begin to fall in love, Dana must overcome
her fear of commitment and her problems with being several
years older than her former student is if they are to form
a permanent relationship.
SAFE HARBOR is a safe bet for readers who relish a
relationship drama with a bit of mystery and the
convalescing power of love. The story line breezes forward
through the actions of the three dimensional key cast
members especially the lead characters and the two
children. Fans of ocean air, sandy beaches, and a top rate
romance will enjoy Luanne Rice' latest offering.
