One of Hannah's Pacific Northwest novels, this time set in the San Juan Islands. I always find her books very satisfying. Of course I cry too much while reading them, but they are always happy tears at the end.
A fascinating story of love, healing, forgiveness and renewal. Certain to strike a chord in the hearts of mothers and daughters everywhere. Many a daughter will see something of herself in Ruby.. Heartwrenching til the true comes out.
One of the best books I have read in ages. The author has a way with words that makes you think. Any daughter will cry. It hits home but in a good way! STRONGLY RECOMMEND.
Such an incredible book! "A facinating story of love, healing, forgiveness, and renewal...certain to strike a chord in the hearts of mothers and daughters everywhere." - Tulsa World.
This was a fast read, but not a great one. This is definitely my least favorite book of hers. Her writing borders on inspirational fiction with this book, not the literary fiction where I found it. I think this book really suffered from the lack of a plot and some REALLY stupid phrases ("pit-bull-mean"?!)... I mean come on, bad enough the first time she used it, but twice in one book in reference to different people, from two different P.O.V.s... not to mention it is an uneducated, stupid remark that really bothered me, especially when she is considered to be such a "sensitive" writer.
