Red Ruby Heart in a Cold Blue Sea
By Morgan Callan Rogers
Publication Date: January 19

From Library Journal:

Bread baking, lobster pots, and Maine’s cold blue sea: none of it is the same for Florine Gilham after her mother disappears on a weekend outing. When she grows up, secrets from her father’s past further complicate her life.
