A wonderful, fully developed story & great depth of characters. Parts of it are almost mysterious & haunting. A great story about love & betrayal.

I found it very challenging to follow all the characters and put the pieces together! I wanted to know how the story got solved, but found it frustrating to keep it all straight.

My interest in this book did not peak until about half way through it, but at that point it became pretty exciting. The subject matter of life on the sea and all the perils that brings was something I'd never read about and description was good, if not a bit wordy, though. The husband/wife relationship is quite interesting, as well, as the author describes how they come to really understand and respect one another. That stayed with me.

I laughed out loud in some parts of this book--seems to say a lot of things we might think, but don't say! Just an interesting, honest book about an unperfect family--enjoyed it.
