I thought this book was very good. I took it on vacation to the Keys and enjoyed reading it. Growing up in Florida, there were events that I remembered, which is always fun for a reader. I don't know if it's because I read it on my Nook, but there was a series plot point I never expected. The author painted these fallable characters that in the end you really come to love. I would recommend this book!

Stilted (pardon the pun)

Did not enjoy this authors writing style. This was less a story with emotion than a catalouging of events in awomans life. Read it to the end but it was tedious going.

    A Good Story that Unfolds Slowly

    If you are looking for a story that builds to a monumental climax, you may wish to select another book. This is the story of a woman's life from her first meeting with the man she would eventually marry and through the entire life of their marriage--with all the ups and downs, all the uncertainties and "could haves" that aflict most marriages. It unfolds slowly, builds up, drops off, builds up again. And like any life well-lived, it is worth the adventure.

    Unusual for a debut novel

    Until the very last few chapters, I stayed right with the story and really liked how every detail of the ordinary lives of the characters did not have to be revealed. It would have taken many many more pages because this book covered 30+ years. However, near the end of the book, there were flashforwards and then backs that I thought were disjointed and unnecessary, although it may have made the story more ordinary in that way. Some things went unexplained in a seemingly mysterious way but I did enjoy the book and would recommmend it to my friends because they may feel differently and everyone has opinions.

    Very good

    This is a good book, but the author's other book is much, much better.
