I listened to this on CD. Why so many books on CD all of a sudden? I have had a problem with my eye and since I need to do a lot of reading at work, I listen to books on tape to get my book fix with less eye strain.

This book was ok. Set in Fairhope, AL, it is a coming of age story set at the beginning of the Second World War. Sixteen-year-old Rove MacNee is given a boat by his elderly German neighbor. So it's partly a sailing book. There is some dysfunction going on in the MacNee family, which might spoil the book if I were to elaborate, so it's partly a dysfunctional family book. But it's mostly about growing up and coming to understand things that were not understandable before. The author writes some beautiful descriptions. You could almost see the seacoast, the sunsets and the wildlife.
