Read in July, 2011

I liked but did not love this book. It is the story of a woman who owns a seasonal sea food restaurant on Cape Cod. Mary is widowed following a meaningless auto accident at a very young age. Her husband was less than perfect. Years later, there is a similar tragic accident and she finds herself reliving her past, exploring the facts and seeing her current life in a new way.
The story was satisfyingly complex, exploring various relationships, family, friends, co-workers and those that might come out of chance encounters. Current topics are delved into such as losing someone to Alzheimer’s disease, single parenting and survivor’s guilt. The story had some unpredictable twists. However, I was left feeling a bit disappointed; because I didn’t really feel like the depth of emotions felt by Mary were captured or explored as much as I felt was warranted.
