Hmmm...I really really like her writing her descriptions of life on the Maine coast (makes me want to vacation there), but the problem I have is that all of her books are so similar. This one is like Colony (one of my all time favs)...I knew about 1/3 through the book what was going to happen with some of the characters. I guess that is not a bad thing, but it really bothered me. It's the story of a woman, Lilly, whose husband Cam has just died. She drives up to their family home in Maine to spend the summer recovering after her loss. While she is there, she relives her youth, up through the time she meets and marries Cam. Along the way, she discovers some things about herself and her relationship with Cam. However, the ending....very odd! I couldn't figure out what really happened! She left some mysteries for the reader...though I would have preferred knowing the answers. If you have read this, I'd love to talk to you about the ending! But all in all, a good beach read, especially if you have not read Colony!

Madelon yes - that ending - I'm glad to know so many found it strange.
