Three people are brought together as a result of a major storm that damages several houses. Quinn is a wealthy businessman, recently bereaved and harbouring a lot of guilt; Maggie, his neighbour, has recently been divorced; and Jack, the carpenter who fixes their houses, hides a shameful secret.

The story is good, the characters are likeable, and there is a lot of potential. Unfortunately, it's not realised. The writing is repetitive and cliché-ridden, the action is overwhelmed with introspective thoughts from all the characters, with viewpoints switching constantly. It could have been heart-wrenching, with a dramatic and exciting conclusion. But there was nothing to excite even the faintest emotion, and the ending seemed unrealistic.

Disappointing.

Nancy Brady I think your comments and review is on the money. I think that it could have been better written (less grammar and continuity errors) and if it had not been Danielle Steel writing it, it would never have hit the bookstores in the first place. Only her name recognition made it publishable as is, in my opinion.
