Reviews

Praise for "Sea Escape"

"Lynne Griffin’s "Sea Escape "is a tender, heartfelt portrait of mothers and daughters: the attention we crave from each other, the secrets we hide, the unexpected ways our wishes are sometimes answered and the walls come crumbling down.”

—Jenna Blum, "New York Times "best-selling author of "Those Who Save Us"
“Lynne Griffin adroitly weaves the separate truths of two women, a mother and daughter, into the singular, moving story of one family. Peopled with characters who are delightfully complicated and divinely flawed, "Sea Escape" becomes a novel of faith and resilience as both women risk disillusionment and heartache to unravel a legacy of entrenched secrets. Griffin spins their journey with literary grace and a keen sense of human nature, building to a climax that makes both her characters and, indeed, her readers reassess what it truly means to be a family.”

—Carol Cassella, author of the national bestseller "Oxygen"
“In" Sea Escape", wounds of love, sacrifice, and betrayal are veiled in mystery until the discovery of private letters reveals long-hidden secrets that set a grieving daughter free to forgive her mother, her father, and ultimately herself. With clear vision into the tender complexities of the female heart, Lynne Griffin has artfully crafted a rich, multigenerational story.”

—Beth Hoffman, bestselling author of "Saving CeeCee Honeycutt"
Praise for "Life Without Summer"

“Griffin’s carefully crafted characters ring heartbreakingly true and her finely wrought plot will snare readers from the first page.”

—Patricia Wood, author of "Lottery"
