Hicks’ skillful use of first person narrative and dialogue engages her readers in the personal lives of her characters: some lovable and some not so much. Unexpected twists and turns mirror the fragile complexities of readers’ own lives and the relationships they have built – and destroyed – along the way. As her stories unfold, one becomes invested in the outcomes.
Hicks’ fifth novel, Adrift, follows the journey of Carly Young Mariner, a devoted wife, mother and second-grade teacher who walks in on an encounter that upends her ordinary life. Over time – but not out of time – she distances herself from her family and everything that has given her a sense of purpose. With hope of finding contentment and a place to contemplate her options, Mariner escapes to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. Shortly after her arrival, a minor accident transforms her and those around her.
The signing will take place on Sunday, May 28th, from 10 AM until noon. Jill will also be signing copies of her previous works: the Bay Avenue series and The Long Climb Back.
