About the Book

“I don’t know how and I don’t know why, but I think I died today.” So begins the complex and mysterious journey of Gavin Goode and his family.

What happened to Gavin and why? What secrets will emerge along the way?

Frankie, his wife and a dress store owner, feels guilty, but why? His son, Ryan, who owns an ice cream parlor, and daughter-in-law, Jenna, who is a bank manager, are expecting their first baby. How will this trauma affect them?

And what of Rosemary, Frankie’s best friend? Or Ben Hillman and eleven year old, Christopher? How are they implicated in the events that unfold around Gavin’s misfortune?

This is a story of despair and hope, dreams and reality, uncertainty and faith, humor, secrecy, forgiveness and beginnings.

As in his previous novels, David B. Seaburn demonstrates his in-depth understanding of the human experience and his storytelling mastery.

Notes from the Author

 

Amazon Reviews

Amanda says:  It is a challenge for me to find a book that I can stick to. It is not easy to find a book that holds my attention. This book was one that I could not wait to start back up again.

Gavin Goode was not only GOOD it was GREAT.

Patricia says:  Gavin Goode is a cleverly written novel that slowly pulls you in and puts you under its delicious spell. Secrets (or are they?), untruths, mystery, and blind faith are effortlessly woven into a tale that keeps the reader engaged and wondering until the last. The characters are incredibly real, their emotions tangible, and their stories somehow familiar. Magically, they slip out of the pages and into the imagination, making this a difficult book to put down. Don't miss out on this fantastic read by a gifted author who has so much to share. I await the next novel!

Jennifer says:  What a wonderful book. The characters are real and the story part of the fabric of our lives. It makes you look at your own life and examine it, in a good way.

Spiritmover says:  This is a gentle story about life and death and the many ways they intersect. The characters are very real and relatable. It is what I call "a page-turner"..
