“Sixteen-year-old Luke Conway is in his last year of high school in the harbour side town of Haven River.
Writing is Luke’s life. All he wants to do is be a journalist and write stories about storm chasers.
But Ryan, Luke’s protective older brother and guardian, has other ideas.
When Luke meets newcomer to town, the mischievous Jamie Pascoe, his world is turned upside down.
Tragedy strikes and Luke is catapulted down a path of self-destruction.
Can Luke overcome the odds pitted against him? To make Jamie proud of him. To hold on tight to his family. To follow his dream on his own terms.”
Haven River is a sweet, touching, tender story of a young boy named Luke and his four brothers all trying to live and cope with the loss of their parents. The five boys all have their own way of coping and their own unique passions.
Luke is a relatable sixteen-year-old boy. He is lovable, and sweet, and you will root for him throughout the entire story. Haven River is a quick read, but the young love, family bond, and tragic loss will touch your heart.
Remember the post, In Support Of Indie Authors, where I talk about reading more self-published books? Haven River by Casey Fae Hewsen is the first self-published novel that I have read. I am happy to announce that it crushed the doubt I had about quality and self-publishing. Hewsen produced literary merit, and proved that authors don’t always need a big publishing house.
