The Raging Sea by Sonia O'Brien

The Raging Sea by Sonia O'Brien

Kaitlyn Winters is in grief over the death of her sister from an accident and she feels guilty that she could've prevented it. Her best friends, Amber and Gracie decide to help her by taking her on a Caribbean Cruise. Before she knows it, her purse comes up missing and no one knows who took it. Within a few hours, a horrific storm brews, threatening to ruin their cruise, but that's not the worst, as the cruise liner is turned into turmoil and the passengers have to abandon ship, causing more confusion and
mayhem. The three friends and their few fellow passengers need to depend on each other to survive the ordeal at sea. Kaitlyn has feelings for Matthew Wright, their room steward, but she is not the right kind of girl for Matthew, as he doesn't date but LDS girls and she finds his religion too different from hers. If they survive their ordeal, she will have to confront her feelings about death, God and spiritual beliefs. This book has all the excitement of being lost at sea with nothing to eat or drink, but learning how to survive with what they each have, as they learn to use their fight off sharks. I thoroughly enjoyed how the author brings the passengers together to help one another in their weakest hours and how some find strength they never had before to overcome their fears.
