About the Author

Tanya Guerrero is the author of Adrift, All You Knead is Love, and How to Make Friends with the Sea. Filipino and Spanish by birth, she has been fortunate enough to call three countries home: the Philippines, Spain, and the United States. Currently, she lives in a shipping container home in the suburbs of Manila with her husband, daughter, and a menagerie of rescued cats and dogs. In her free time, she grows her own food, bakes bread, and reads.


Guerrero adroitly unfolds this tale of grief and triumph by showing a visceral story of determination alongside the effects a tragedy has on the people left behind. This is a stirring page-turner that will move readers to appreciate the people in their lives. --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW
