The author did a really great job creating characters that I believed, and cared about. The story did end a bit abruptly, but it was entertaining and easy to read. The main character really struggled with alcoholism, and she taught us to take big risks to get big rewards. Things certainly did not always work out the way Polly, our narrator and main character wanted them to, and isn't that what life is like? Recommend for a nice summer read that goes quick, and revolves around islands and beaches in Maine.
