From the author of The Deep End of the Ocean comes an epic story of courage and devotion that spans three continents and the entire map of the human heart. Just hours after his wife and her entire family perish in the Christmas Eve tsunami in Brisbane, American expat and former police officer Frank Mercy goes out to join his volunteer rescue unit and pulls a little boy from a submerged car, saving the child’s life with only seconds to spare. In that moment, Frank’s own life is transformed. Two if by Sea is the story of one man’s road to recovery and the challenges he faces to protect the people he loves. It’s a universal adventure full of emotion and quite a bit of intrigue.

Non-Garden City library cardholders may register in person beginning June 15 if space is available.
