Spindrift usually refers to spray, particularly the spray blown from cresting waves during a gale. This spray, which "drifts" in the direction of the gale, is one of the characteristics of a wind speed of 8 Beaufort and higher at sea.

Heartbreakingingly wonderful

I’ve read the series and the characters have stayed with me like friends I know well. This extra book is a special treat to meet characters that are central to the books but not really present. Beautifully written

I’ve finished all 4 books and realized there was also this one. What a great find, and a must read if you loved these books as much as I did.

Really enjoyed getting more background on many of the characters in the Exit Unicorn series. I will now begin the fourth in the series with renewed enthusiasm!

These few background stories only made the characters become more real to me. Characters I already loved,
I love even more now.

I really loved this collection of short stories based on characters from the Exit Unicorns series. I enjoyed getting to know Brian and Brendan Riordan and seeing a bit of Casey and Patrick as young boys. Yevgena's story was so heartbreaking and beautiful. The sneak peek of the next book was awesome. I have missed these characters so much and I just can't wait to see what happens next. ...more

Great story

Loved reading this book that is really the back story of how it all began for the Riordian family and how it shaped the next generation.
