I started this book puzzling over the structure of the title. After finishing it, I believe I would have entitled it Whose Stones Are These or A Whole Lot of Light. Whatever you call it, this book is a rose, a white rose that symbolizes new beginnings and remembrance. While roses don't linger, Robert Bliss's stone monument would live long, holding the memories of generations of soldiers and their families.
Whose Waves These Are is built on the themes of grieving and truly living. There are times when one cannot do the latter without succeeding at the prior, whether grieving the loss of a person or the loss of an opportunity. This story will resonate in the reader's heart as Robert, William and Annie's story unfolds. I am grateful to have receive a copy of Whose Waves These Are from Bethany House via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review and received no monetary compensation.
