11.18.20 - FLOAT PLAN receives a starred review from Publisher's Weekly!


"Doller expertly captures the tides of grief as Anna struggles with her sadness, guilt, and anger over Ben’s death and confusion about her mounting feelings for the charming Keane (“Is it too soon to want someone else? What happens to my love for Ben? Where does it go?”). But it’s not all gloom: the relationship between Anna and Keane is uplifting and convincing, and beautiful descriptions of their time at sea weave throughout. Doller’s expert balance of the sweet and the serious make this touching romance a sure success."
