Excellent book. One of the few books I could not put down. The characters are well developed and the story comes together so well. I highly recommend this.

I was impressed with the imagery in this book. The characters came together very well. The story was good and had a surprise ending...not at all what was expected. The best way to describe it is "pleasant". Good story.

It was a beautiful book, and a terriffic summer read a few years back. Every time I hold it, it takes me back to laying on the beach and hunting for my own sea glass.

What a great read. I had a little trouble ge4tting into the book but when the worlds started to collide I finally got it. A few different lifestyles clash and come together during the Depression and the fall of the stock market. Some lose everything and others never really had anything to begin with.

Honora has just married Sexton Beecher and now this. They have biought a house that ia bout to repossessed because of the bank failures. Sexton must take a job at the mills and this is where things get interesting. Sexton brings home folks for a strike and it turns out Honora knows one of the men. McDermott, she has given him a ride before. He is very smitten with her. They kiss and so on it goes.

I like anything by Anita Shreve. I really enjoyed several things about this book: 1 - it takes place in New England (I live in NE) 2 - it takes place in 1929 which is an era I find very interesting 3- the story is told from different points of view. And of course, her writing is just beautiful.
