Recommended for: Oregon history buffs and romantics!
Read in May, 2003

This book is beautifully written....it is the author's best guess, after much research, following the story of the Simpson family and their life on the Oregon coast. I grew up next door to one of the main settings of this story and really appreciate the historical value of this book. It is not just a historical recounting, but an interesting look at a very flawed woman and the choices she made during her life. Even though you hate the choices she made, you still love her! Enjoy!
