Genre: Contemporary Fiction/
In the wake of heartrending family
tragedies, Matt and Irene Moore move
with their fourteen-year-old daughter,
Casey, to a small town. Their goal is to
get far away from the daily reminders
that leave each of them raw and guiltridden.
Their hope is to find redemption,
repair, and renewal. Instead, the threads
of their relationship unravel even more.
Breakers is a small community
perched on the rocky coast of the Pacific
Northwest. Its cold isolation seems to
mirror the hearts of the family seeking
solace there. As they settle into their new
life, old grief settles with them. They've
once more set the stage for calamity.
Into this mix comes Billy Thurber, a
young drifter with his own conflicts,
whose life unexpectedly entangles with
the Moores’. His arrival in Breakers parallels
a rash of hateful and senseless
crimes, and soon the whole town – eager
for someone to blame – goes after Thurber
with murderous intent. Out of this
dangerous chaos, however, the Moores
find unexpected grace and healing in a
most unlikely way.
Author C. S. Lakin explores our need
to assign reason and fix blame for the
pain and grief in our lives. Though the
circumstances are fictional, the emotions
are real and universal, making
Someone to Blame a great and inspiring read.
