I normally read suspense, thrillers or suspense romance novels so this was definitely out of my genre. I enjoyed the book but I must say when I finished it, I couldn't get it off my mind. I loved the characters but I wanted it to end differently, not that it ended badly. It left me unsettled which is not necessarily a bad thing. I just can't explain how I felt. I've read a lot of books over the years and this book just grabbed me. I immediately went out and purchased another book by Ms. Hilderbrand "A Summer Affair" and I felt the same way after I read it. It couldn't have ended any differently but I wanted it too. I know this is a weird review and I hope it doesn't discourage you from reading her books because I defintely recommend them. I have The Castaways on my "Wish List". Ms. Hilderbrand's unique writing style, subject matter and descriptions of Nantucket keep me wanting more.
