Review

Pulitzer prize winner and prolific author Robert Olen Butlercalled Not Waving, Drowning, "An ambitious novel that compellingly intertwines the livesof three separate, complex characters across a century to illuminate the great and fundamental issues of serious fiction: the yearning forconnection, for self. Wonderfully rich and readable, this is aremarkable debut novel by an exciting new author."

NYT Best sellingauthor of nine novels and fresh new voice from the south, Patti Callahan Henry said, "With uncanny ability, Linda Sands weaves the disparatethreads of three women's lives into a beautiful tapestry of hauntingloss where all is not as it seems."

"Linda Sands is an unflinching writer who stares herreader in the eye while she grabs them by the throat. Not Waving,Drowning is an epic tale examining the lives and motivations of threememorable women. A great read!"~"I
nternational best selling author Marc Fitten

More praise for Not Waving,Drowning from NY editors: 

"Ambitious, with strongfemale characters and a broad scope and sweep of story."

"An ambitious feat ofstorytelling. I like that not one but three worlds beckon."

"Thewriting is beautiful and very atmospheric, with a meaty, almost gothicfeel about it. Readers will enjoy the great cast of strong femalecharacters."

  Excerpt from a review by Bookwenches 
Savannah, Georgia, with all its quirks and traditions serves as a back drop for the stories of three women, spanning a century, that interlink with one another in beautifully haunting ways. Not Waving, Drowning is a beautifully written, sad story that will leave a lasting imprint on your soul. 

From the Author

While shopping along the riverfront on a family vacation in Savannah, I was told conflicting stories of Florence Martus, the Waving Girl. Some folks said she was love-lorn,  a die-hard romantic, others called her crazy. They sent me to see her bronze statue overlooking the river.
 Returning home I was unable to forget the image of the waving cloth, the dog by her side, the ever- present lantern.  
 I drove back to Savannah and spent many days at the Georgia Historical Society Research Center gathering all the information  that I could find on The Martuses, Cockspur Island, the culture, people and pace of old and new Savannah. 
  It took another three years to finalize the research to get the details right and suss out the story, then another two years to write and re-write what would finally become Not Waving, Drowning.
