    Amazing- I thoroughly enjoyed this book. After reading one of the other reviews I have to say that I strongly disagree about the female character being tiresome. Some people are just "normal" and more emotional than others. Characters don't have to be these complex pieces- they only have to be roles in a story that touch your heart. This book, for me, did just that. Couldn't put it down!

    Another Winner for Lustbader!

    The characters in this story touch not only your heart but your soul! As with Hidden, Lustbader's first book, the characters continue to live with you after you have finished the book. This is one to share with friends who love good books!

    Good read.

    I enjoyed this book. The author is great. The book has a believable story line not your typical happily ever after. Realistic. I'll be looking for the next one she writes.

    an insightful character study

    Although she still believes that Paul is the one for her, Lily starts to doubt whether she still loves her husband. Lately she has found nothing brings her joy especially her lack of connection on any level with workaholic Paul.-------------- Needing time to find her equilibrium and decide what to do about her marriage, Lily leaves Paul and Manhattan to spend the summer at Stone Creek in Upstate New York while her spouse takes no time off from work. There she meets widower Danny and his sad five year old son Caleb. Although a decade older than Danny, they are attracted to one another, but it is Caleb who enters Lily¿s heart. Meanwhile Paul has an epiphany that Lily is unhappy, but he is assigned a critical case so he must choose.----------- In many ways the support cast Paul as a workaholic and Caleb as a grieving little boy steal the show from the lead pair Lily and Danny. However, overall they enhance an insightful character study that looks deep into child grief, spousal estrangement, and maternal biological clocks. Ultimately simple yet convoluted relationships as Lily¿s need for contentment changes four lives. Although some of the issues are repetitively overdone, fans of contemporary tales will appreciate Lily¿s search for happiness in STONE CREEK.-------- Harriet Klausner

    Character development?

    Although I read this book to the end, I couldn't bear to read every word because the main female character was so annoyingly tiresome and repetitive: she cried about EVERYTHING, good or bad, but mostly to get her way. What a sterling role model - in wild contrast to the two strong minded, creative, and talented men in her life. It is difficult to comprehend what they find so attractive as she exploits her own weaknesses, over and over.

    Her two men, Daniel and Paul, mostly stay true to character, with two singular exceptions. Daniel, as the sole support of his young son whose mother has just died, decides to go rock climbing. Hello?
    And, Paul wimps out at the end, giving into every 'unmanly' request. Geez, how hot can this tearful at the drop of every hat babe be? Where are some real women to give her and the guys a reality check?
    When will she ever just grow up?!?
