    'Just OK'

    This story seemed to drag for me... especially the first three quarters. I'm not sure I'd recommend it, in that it was so slow-moving. I did enjoy the period-setting.

    An okay book

    This was the first of Shreves books that I've read, and I expected better. I pretty much enjoyed reading it but it lacked depth and insight.

    Loved the Beach Words

    This is a good read. The story line is smooth and easy. I really like the mental pictures of water and sand presented in the book. Course, if I had a teenage daughter, I might want to have a talk with her after reading this book :)

    Well-written Boddice-Ripper

    As with all of Shreve's books, the writing is pleasant and evocative. The story however is a bit over the top, lurching into melodrama worthy of Barbara Cartland.
