At the end of September 2018, four copies of Foam on the Crest of Waves  embarked on a journey. One started in California, one in the state of New York, one in Maryland, and one in New Jersey.

They are passing from reader to reader and hopefully garnering fans and reviews. 


If you are interested to take part in a review chain or would like to know more about how it works, please send me a message...

#1 The Pacific Copy


Pam, Summerland California, took the book to Seattle where she welcomed her new grand-son to the world. Congrats!!!

Here is what she says about

Foam on the Crest of Waves:

"What a delight! Not quite a fairy tale, as it travels a path of deep suffering and great joy, but it arrives on the shore of Glass Beach in triumph. I couldn't put it down."

Linda, Glendale, California: "Anyone who understands the joy of finding a sea glass treasure on

a beach stroll will love this modern twist on the siren call of mermaids and the sea.

Heartbreak, redemption, young love. A good read."


The book will spend Christmas with Jamie in Reno, Nevada.

#3 The Atlantic Copy


Sandy, Pasadena, Maryland:

"What a complex mixture of emotions. Layers woven like a fabric throughout the family’s grief stricken struggle and the joys that surface a break much like waves on a shore. You get entangled in the book, and I couldn’t wait to read the end!"


The book is now with Rhonda in Suffolk, Virginia.


#4 The Seaglasslovers' Copy


Jewelry maker Linda in Cape May, New Jersey, was the first reader in this review chain.

Here is what she says about

Foam on the Crest of Waves:

"I loved this book! When I find a book about sea glass, Mermaids and family, I am in heaven! I hope all the mermaids out there read about Abalone's journey. Foam on the Crest of Waves is full of love, beautiful journey, and my favorite, sea glass jewelry! Prepare for a wonderful journey."

Amy in Orland Park, Illinois, just finished reading; this is what she says about Foam on the Crest of Waves

“I really liked it! There were a lot of

surprises and twists and turns.

I always tell my kids when I’m

reading a book, or watching a movie, when I “figured out” what

was going to happen. Unfortunately for my near perfect record of

being correct, I did not figure anything out in your book! It kept me guessing!”


The book is in the mail to Stephanie in North Tonawanda, New York.
