“The people we love never really leave us.

About the Book

Every Sunday, Gus’s grandfather takes him and his little sister, Willa-Mae, to the beach to search for seashells. It’s a tradition they shared with Gus’s father before he passed away. As Gus discovers one exquisite shell after another, he marvels at their uniqueness and wonders what treasures his father is finding on the long beaches of heaven.

Treasures of the Tide is a lyrical exploration of natural wonder, beauty, and family — and a reminder that the people we love never really leave us.
