really liked it
Read in September, 2009 — I own a copy , read count: 1

I liked this book a lot, although I did think that, at just over 400 pages, it was a bit too long. Hannah, a 34-year-old artist lives alone on an island off the coast of Maine, and enjoys the solitude. A dog is washed onto the shore of the island, and this event seems to usher in a lot of changes. Family secrets are revealed, and soon Hannah is left to question how she has led her life. The author does a great job with characters. I could relate to all of them, and because of his skill in developing them, I enjoyed the book a lot. Loved the dog and old Mr. Eaton in particular.
