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.
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.
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.
Good Read,Very descriptive. A must read if the depression era intrests you.
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.
