Day of the Wave

Isla and Ben were just sixteen when the Boxing Day tsunami tore through their beach resort in Thailand. Just days after forming a life-changing bond, both were missing and presumed dead. Unbeknown to each other and haunted by one of the biggest natural disasters in world history, Isla and Ben are living very different lives, until over a decade later when a chance encounter throws them back together.

Based on real life events, The Day of the Wave is a story of healing, learning to let go, and figuring out when to hold on with everything you have left.


I am a fan of Becky Wicks.  She has a great style of writing and it is always a bright spot in the world of literature.
She wrote here of 2 peoples struggle through a horrific natural disaster and the aftermath it has caused in their lives.  Isla and Ben's relationship is such a struggle and a soulful experience that you cannot help but feel totally involved in it.  I appreciated the struggles that they had to go through and how they were shaped truly by this devastating event.
A solid 4 stars for sure.


Becky Wicks lives in Bali and scribbles books, and she’s mostly powered by coffee. Her first book in the Starstruck Series, Before He Was Famous recently reached #1 in Amazon’s Coming of Age and New Adult & College categories, and her three travel books, published by HarperCollins are online to make feet nice and itchy. Mostly though, she loves to write love stories. She blogs most days at beckywicks.com and always welcomes distractions on Twitter @bex_wicks. Especially if you have photos of cats.
