Tour! A Review of The Day Of The Wave by Becky Wicks

The Day Of The Wave by Becky Wicks
Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: May 1, 2015
Publisher: Self

Isla and Ben were just sixteen when the Boxing Day tsunami tore through their beach resort in Thailand. Just days after forming a life-changing bond, both were missing and presumed dead. Unbeknown to each other and haunted by one of the biggest natural disasters in world history, Isla and Ben are living very different lives, until over a decade later when a chance encounter throws them back together. 

Based on real life events, The Day of the Wave is a story of healing, learning to let go, and figuring out when to hold on with everything you have left.

The Day of the Wave by Becky Wicks is a story about surviving and learning to live again. Isla and Ben have survived something most people don't even come close to experiencing. Neither of them have coped with being the ones who survived. Heck, neither of them even knew the other had lived. It was emotional reading bits of their back stories and experiences through out the book. We get to see how they met, what happened on that day, and what's gone on since. They both emotionally punish and/or blame themselves. Once they meet again, they begin to heal, but do they feel like they deserve to move on? This is one of those stories that just makes you think, because even though these particular people are fictitious, the tsunami happened. It ruined, ended,and changed lives forever. It's an emotional story..
