Editorial Reviews

Review

A riveting story about a gut-wrenching summer in which two brothers learn that in spite of their differences and the changes going on around them -- including the cancellation of the World Series -- they're always going to be there for one another. T.M. Murphy and Seton Murphy 'hit the Crescent Road sign on the fly' with The Running Waves! --Brett Friedlander, co-author of Chasing Moonlight: The True Story of Field of Dreams' Doc Graham

It s easy to get lost in Silver Shores, the small Cape Cod town created by T.M. and Seton Murphy. But this isn t your grandparents Cape Cod. In a world rarely seen by those on the outside, The Running Waves reveals the dark side of life on the Cape as the Brennan brothers struggle to become men. As their lives spiral out of control it becomes more difficult to obey the family motto Love one another and stick together. --Raffi Yessayan, best-selling author of Eight in the Box and Two in the Hat

As stark and haunting as its subject matter is the novel explores themes from addiction to grief, fear of failure to fear of success T.M. Murphy and Seton Murphy have struck that often elusive balance: their story tackles the darker side of human life in a book that is terrifically fun to read. The lack of pretense in the prose and the laugh-out-loud humor make The Running Waves practically impossible to put down. Sympathetic in all their imperfections, the characters of Silver Shores will linger in readers minds long after the satisfying clap of the closing novel, and with its visual imagery, page-turning pace and punchy dialogue, film buffs will love the cinematic quality of the book. --Julia Cox, Freelance writer for The Cape Cod Times and NewEnglandFilm.com
