Caroline Adrift by Kay Bratt ~ 5⭐

Genres: Contemporary Women’s & Travel Fiction ~ Release Date: February 22, 2023

REVIEW: Caroline Adrift by Kay Bratt is the fifth book in the Sail Away series. I love this series and the stories that I have read so far. Like a broken record, if you have not started this series, just remember the first book Welcome Aboard is a FREE download. It contains the first chapter of all the books so you can get a taste of the whole dessert. These books are only tied together by the fact they all have something to do with a cruise. They don’t have continuing characters or plots. 

Caroline Adrift is about a woman who loses her husband shortly before their fiftieth wedding anniversary. Let’s just say Caroline is Adrift! She is so heart-broken that she doesn’t have much interest in doing anything. Her husband had booked them on a cruise and she doesn’t want to go. Her adult daughters talk her into going and in fact they decide to go with her. She goes but, it is not a very happy Caroline that boards the ship. I have to give a hand to Kay because she has developed such a bitter, lonely woman that I actually liked. Caroline must have been a hard character to write. I thought that many time while reading this book.

I have to tell you, I cried many times while reading this one. I was a widow and totally understood how Caroline felt. She was a little crusty beside and I might just be crusty too. I try to hide it from most folks. Haha. I think it might have been a little depressing to write someone who has such an attitude. Then again…it might have been fun. I liked going along with Caroline and her girls on this cruise. I enjoyed watching all the interactions as they meet new people along the way.

I really want to encourage you to try this series. Download Welcome Aboard and see what you think. You don’t have a thing to lose except part of your heart. These stories are so heartwarming. They will take you away from the dreary winter and give you a lift. Until next time…Happy Reading!

SYNOPSIS: Set sail to new adventures and escapes with eight best-selling authors in the exciting new Sail Away series!

After the death of her beloved James, one woman faces a future of feeling adrift and must find a reason to go on without the love of her life, from the bestselling author of Wish Me Home.

When Caroline McClellan’s beloved husband passes away, she doesn’t know what to do with herself without him as her center and reason for being. Caroline’s three adult daughters insist that she accompany them on the cruise that was supposed to mark her fiftieth wedding anniversary. Caroline is a reluctant participant and sure she will not find any joy in a voyage that was supposed to be a celebration but without her husband, feels like a chore.

Betty Martelle is an interesting woman who takes life by the horns and makes it her goal to find purpose in every day that she is still allowed to breathe. Fate will bring a new friend into her life and give her an opportunity to find a way to break through a barrier of grief to share her gift of spontaneity and finding joy in the little things.

Set on a cruise to the lush island of Maui, Caroline Adrift is an emotional friendship story of two women brought together by fate. One is adrift when it comes to finding meaning in life, and the other is determined to be a beacon of hope and teach her how to do it.

Join Kay Bratt, International Bestselling author, as she brings the latest book in The Sail Away series to life, featuring a heart-warming story of love and loss, and the gift of friendship.
