This was an okay read.

From back cover:

"When Veronica married Guy, she didn't know it would mean more than twenty years of constant change, a new home every year in a different coastal town. Finally, she'd had enough, and fled with her teenage daughter to Whisper Mountain, to the home of her oldest friend. What she found there was a new life, a shifting from sea tides to hidden mountain springs, which renewed her, but also tested the courage of all three women."

I loved reading about NC coastal towns, and the plot that involved three generations of women and their interactions and growth was done well; Bache didn't overwhelm the reader with detail and background but developed the characters enough to make them memorable and not stereotypical. Not intended to be cliche, but it's my first "beach read" in awhile.

I found some of this book difficult to read...(in reference to the treatment of animals)

This was a dark, melancholy read. It was hard for me to read in several places (high kill animal shelter, painful dying, etc). Well written, but very dark.
