This is a pro­mo from the author

When her sis­ter los­es her house to Hur­ri­cane Sandy, Delaney Grif­fin wel­comes the fam­i­ly into her home. Months lat­er, with five noisy kids and an over­bear­ing broth­er-in-law threat­en­ing her san­i­ty, Delaney spends much of her free time at the wildlife refuge, which also works as her refuge. Still, the lack of pri­va­cy, along with space to dance, her only pas­sion­ate release, caus­es her debil­i­tat­ing social anx­i­ety to esca­late.

Eli For­rester has come from small town Indi­ana to Barnegat, New Jer­sey with his com­pa­ny to help restore the coast. A high rise work­er who loves new peo­ple and new places, he fears noth­ing, except water. When he acci­den­tal­ly kicks one of the sea crit­ters Delaney is try­ing to help res­cue, he is drawn to the qui­et New Jer­sey girl. Unwill­ing to take her cues to leave her alone, Eli is alter­nate­ly put off and turned on by her odd behav­ior.

Under shad­ow of dev­as­ta­tion, fear, and forced sep­a­ra­tion, Delaney and Eli search for their own res­cue light.
