From the bestselling author of These Tangled Vines comes an emotionally gripping  novel about the power of one woman’s search for answers when her husband vanishes in the night.

Olivia Hamilton is married to the love of her life, Dean, a charismatic pilot who flies private jets for the rich and famous. But when he vanishes over the Bermuda Triangle, Olivia’s idyllic existence unravels.

The two women’s strange connection threatens to unlock secrets that will change everything Olivia thought she knew about her marriage, her husband, and most importantly, herself.

Full of spellbinding twists and turns, Beyond the Moonlit Sea is a vivid, emotionally complex novel about the stirring power of love lost and found—and the incredible strength of one woman who fights for happiness in the wake of tragedy and seeks hope where there is light.
