The Metaphors of A River in the Ocean
As I wrote A River in the Ocean, I had two things in mind. Write a good story everyone can enjoy and keep the metaphors intact. What most readers don’t know is that the novel is a complete metaphor for the life my daughter and I shared.
From the separation we went through because of my divorce from her mother to what it was like to be a single father, it’s all wrapped up in a great story about a father and his daughter who need to find each other again.
After awakening from a coma and suffering from Amnesia, Chris has to pick up the pieces and start his life over again. Miraculously, his daughter Krista is being taken care of by a wacky couple with good intentions. The comedy relief is bounced against the drama of a father who knows he’s missing something, but he just can’t figure out what it is.
