In Sea Creatures, a riveting domestic drama by Susanna Daniel, a mother must make the unthinkable choice between her husband and her son.
When Georgia Qullian returns to her hometown of Miami, her toddler and husband in tow, she is hoping for a fresh start. They have left Illinois trailing scandal and disappointment in their wake, fallout from her husband's severe sleep disorder. For months, their three-year-old son has refused to speak a word.
On a whim, Georgia takes a job as an errand runner for a reclusive artist and is surprised at how her life changes dramatically. But soon the family’s challenges return, more complicated than before. Late that summer, as a hurricane bears down on South Florida, Georgia must face the fact that her decisions have put her only child in grave danger.
Sea Creatures is a mesmerizing exploration of the high stakes of marriage and parenthood.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
So full of sophomoric aphorisms and her references to American Sign Language were totally off--she was not using A.S.L., she was gesturing, using signs--not 'speaking' to her child with A.S.L. This is misleading to readers--especially those unfamiliar with the language
What was most disappointing about Susanna Daniel’s story?
I was disappointed by her reliance on the trite.
Would you be willing to try another one of Karen White’s performances?
The narrator? Her voice added to the misery.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointed that the author did not research more into A.S.L.
