On Big Sawyer island, life is as steady as the routine of the lobstermen who leave with the tide each morning and return with their haul each night. But for forty-year-old New Yorker Julia Bechtel, life and what's important in it are about to be forever altered when she survives a terrible boat accident en route to the island. Now, in the company of her aunt and daughter, Julia finds herself feeling strangely connected to the tragedy's other survivors -- Noah, a divorced lobsterman, and Kim, a young woman rendered mute since her rescue -- and newly outraged at the state of her marriage to a domineering man. Seeing the world with new eyes, Julia vows to embrace life with all of its joys and uncertainties. And the journey begins on Big Sawyer...
I hate writing this book review, because Barbara Delinsky is one of my favorite authors. And anyway, I shouldn't say I read this book, because I struggled through to page 178 of the 491 pages and finally said enough is enough. It was a very slow boring book to read. (That is just my opinion only.) I noticed quite a few who have read this book, loved it, liked it, and thought it was an okay read. However, I am not one of them.
All that being said; this will not keep me from reading other Barbara Delinsky books, like I said, she is one of my favorite authors. I have read quite a few of her books and I have loved, liked or thought they were okay reads. This just happens to be one I don't care for. I felt it had way to much details about the rabbits, the food, the menu, the fog, the weather etc, I could go on and on, but I won't.
Therefore, I will have to give this book 1*, because I didn't finish reading it.
I own this book and it is in my personal library.
