Synopsis:

I'm overwhelmed.Truth be told, I've been overwhelmed for years. Adrift in a sea of stress and grief and clinging to the life raft of responsibility.It's time I start swimming again. And someday? Maybe surf the waves instead of being pulled under and dragged out to sea.

God offers so much more for Erin than a life of treading water, focusing all her time and attention on running a small business while raising her kids after the death of her husband.Through strangely poignant dreams and a series of run-ins with an unexpectedly attractive guy from church, Erin finds the hope she’ll not only feel alive again, but maybe even ride life’s waves victoriously.

Adrift is the first of several novellas tied to the fictional Grace Springs Fellowship in the full-length Everyday Love series.These journal-style novellas are roughly 18-20K words, filled with vivid imagery and reflect the ways in which God at work in the main character's life.

I would like to thank Jaycee Weaver for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

Goodreads Amazon Barnes and Noble Book Depository



I was deeply moved by Adrift! It is the story of a woman recovering from grief caused by the death of her best friend — the only man she ever loved — her husband.

Jaycee Weaver has achieved a delicate balance of conveying the depth of emotion while keeping the story full of hope. My chest tightened as Erin reached for the wedding ring she no longer wore.

The dreams Erin had, full of symbolism, were amazing. The analogy of being adrift was woven throughout the entire story so carefully and so well.

I loved Erin’s children and the way her teenage son had stepped into a role of maturity and kindness. When he brought her coffee the morning she was running late, my heart melted a little more.

Adrift is a quiet, contemplative look at life after death.

 

About Jaycee Weaver

Jaycee Weaver lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with her amazing husband, three daughters, a crazy shih-tzu, and a dwarf rabbit. When she’s not writing, she’s probably in hot pursuit of her 90 million other hobbies or shuttling the kids around. Jaycee loves to read books in multiple genres, drink too much coffee (honestly, when are they going to make the coffee IV a real thing?!), sing, take landscape and floral photos, sew, cook, bake, and craft nearly anything. She considers herself a recovering perfectionist and sometimes hot mess. She does her best to live her faith in action, being open, honest, and real; letting God be Lord over the good, the bad, and the ugly even when it’s hard.
