"Ashley Ream has an absolutely astounding voice she is one of the most compelling, sharpest writers working today. The 100 Year Miracle is already one of my favorite novels of 2016. Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone GirlOnce a century, for only six days, the bay around a small Washington island glows like a water-bound aurora. Dr. Rachel Bell, a scientist studying the 100-Year Miracle and the tiny sea creatures that create it, knows a secret about the phenomenon that inspired the regions myths and folklore: the rare green water may contain a power that could save Rachels own life (and change the world). When Rachel connects with Harry and Tilda, a divorced couple cohabiting once again as Harry enters the last stages of a debilitating disease, Harry is pulled into Rachel's obsession and hope as they both grasp at this once-in-a-lifetime chance to save themselves. But the Miracle does things to people. Strange and mysterious things. And as these things begin to happen, Rachel has only six days to uncover and control the Miracle's secrets before the waters go dark for another hundred years"-- Provided by publisher.

Ream has chosen intricate observation to underpin an atmospherically rich plot, which behooves her to at least proofread the manuscript. Tilda's descriptive preparation of epoxy for sailboat repair is reflective of an exothermic, not endothermic, reaction. If thermochemistry is germane to furthering the storyline, then verify the resin/hardener process. Later, when Tilda invokes 'Mayday. Five miles south-southwest from Carpenter's Island.' Serendipity can't all of a sudden be five miles south-southeast from Carpenter's when the Mayday is repeated a minute later. These types of oversight undermine, in halting fashion, the smooth establishment of an actuality based environment within the novel. It may be safe to venture that without all the substantial detail The 100 Year Miracle would fizzle, warranting only a superficial perusal at best.
