I kept waiting for the story to pick up and get going. I also kept waiting for the author to get a backbone. She fails to put her foot down on 'the twins' who borrow and then sink her boat. Then she repeatedly cannot find the words to refuse the 'assistance' of the 'The Island Boys', despite their well-known reputation for destruction. Anywhere else, these guys would be out of business. I can see WHY they stay on this island, as no takes the initiative to sue them for incompetence. But I guess this is a learned passivity, as she describes her parents laid out on the living room floor, hiding from the neighbor. I did appreciate the author's candor about the anger and frustration of trying to live with one's life-decisions, and trying to make them work. She lends voice to the situation in which many women find themselves--- big city OR isolated island.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
