This is an early book by Barbara Delinsky and hadn't reached her full potential at thie time, I think. It was an interesting story and worth reading, but lacked the charm and intriguing situations of her later books. She now developes characters with more depth and more gripping stories. Still, I did enjoy Rachel and Jim's journey.
I liked the plot and the writing. A nice novel and page turner!
This is my first Delinsky book - I liked it!

I was born and raised in suburban Boston. My mother’s death, when I was eight, was the defining event of a childhood that was otherwise ordinary. I took piano lessons and flute lessons. I took ballroom dancing lessons. I went to summer camp through my fifteenth year (in Maine, which explains the setting of so many of my stories), then spent my sixteenth summer learning to type and to drive (two sk ...more
