Description

From the author of The Ingredients of Us comes a moving story about true love and heartbreak, mistakes and redemption, forgiveness and second chances.

Five years ago, marine biologist Abby Fisher made a mistake that cost her everything. Rather than face the consequences, she fled home to start anew--and built the career she'd always dreamed of. But when her research program runs out of funding, she's adrift once again and decides to return to the safe harbor of her family and friends.

Except nothing at home is how she remembered.

Her friendships are strained, her normally affectionate parents seem distant, and her once-great love story is now just a painful memory. What's worse, she keeps running into the people she hurt years ago--and they aren't ready to forgive her.

Abby is determined to atone for her mistakes, but she can't seem to move beyond her guilt for a chance of future happiness. Can Abby learn to sail through the storm, or will she remain lost at sea?

Poignant and heartfelt, Keep Me Afloat asks the question: How can you expect forgiveness from others if you can't even forgive yourself?

Keep Me Afloat By Jennifer Gold “We all have baggage,” he goes on. “Haven’t you realized that’s what the coffee is for? It facilitates conversation. It gives us the energy to unpack.” Unpack and grab an extra cup of coffee because when you pick up Jennifer Gold’s Keep Me Afloat, you are going to want to stay awhile! Her fallible characters will warm your heart on this soul searching journey of love, loss, and healing! Life is messy and complicated and sometimes the baggage we carry around just gets too heavy to keep packed up. Abby Fisher is lost and no matter how far she runs, she can’t seem to let go of the past. When the research study she is working on loses further funding, she knows it’s time to return home. She needs her family, her friends, but most of all she needs to close the wounds that after more than 4 years are still so raw. Jennifer Gold’s engaging writing style, the smooth transition from past to present keeps her stories flowing easily. Her characters are broken but repairable, their story familiar yet original. Abby’s story could be anyone’s and that is what makes it so relatable. This is her second novel and as a HUGE fan of her first, The Ingredients of Us, I can’t be more excited to share Keep Me Afloat. It is every bit as extraordinary! She is easily one of my favorite new authors!
