“Safe Harbor” by Luanne Rice

Safe Harbor” by Luanne Rice
2002, Bantam Books
ISBN: 0-553-80218-6

I started it yesterday. I finished it today. “Safe Harbor” by Luanne Rice is a terrific page turner. It’s family. It’s romance. It’s grieving and it’s moving through grief. It’s discovering anew the important things about family. I just couldn’t put it down.

Safe Harbor” is the story of Dana, an accomplish artist who has made her home all over the world and is presently living in France. She returns home to Connecticut to take charge of her two nieces, suddenly left orphans when their parents, Lily and Mark, were swept into the sea and their boat sunk on a perfectly clear night.

There is mystery surrounding their deaths and it becomes 12 year old Quinn’s mission to make things right. Quinn and her sister Allie and Dana are 3 people who just don’t understand their new positions in life. Enter Sam who Dana and her sister Lily taught to sail many years before. Sam swore when he was 8 years old that he would protect them all their lives. And, so the story goes. I am always assured of a good read when I pick up a book by Luanne Rice.
