The first novel by the author of acclaimed national bestseller The Sunday Wife, now reissued in paperback.

In a small Alabama town in Zion County, life is finally looking up for 20-year-old Donnette Sullivan. Having just inherited her aunt’s old house and beauty shop, she’s taken over the business. Her husband, Tim, recently crippled in an accident, is beginning to cope not only with his disability but also with the loss of his dreams. Once a promising artist who gave up art for sports, Tim paints a sign for Donnette’s new shop, Making Waves, that causes ripples throughout the small southern community. In a sequence of events — sometimes funny, sometimes tragic — the lives of Donnette, Tim, and others in their small circle of family and friends are unavoidably affected. Once the waves of change surge through Zion County, the lives of its people are forever altered.

Making Waves is as memorable as any book that I?ve read in years. It is an absolute delight.” –Terry Kay, author of The Runaway and To Dance With the White Dog
