This is my favorite of Anita Shreve's stories. It's fascinating how she sets a story in a place and you can clearly imagine the setting....the beach and the surrounding area. In another book, she sets another of her stories in the same site, different time period or from another perspective.
Olympia's tale is one of a first forbidden and utterly complicated love. Seductive as it was, it also held elements of innocence and perhaps promise that she might eventually come to understand true gifts of love.
