MY FATHER'S SHADOW
Breen Another thoroughly enjoyable book by this author . . .
Prepare to become part of a great group of friends
who rally around the main character who is going through a difficult time. As the title may suggest, it’s about a young
woman who is drawn back to the place she grew up and to the people who made her home so memorable. From the main character’s
life in Boston, with identified landmarks, and descriptions of the city, to the coast of Maine and all the wonders it has
to offer, the story makes you long to be there. The interaction of the characters and the surprises in this story kept me
engaged to the very end. These are people you’d love to know in real life! My favorite part was the Thanksgiving gathering.
Especially if you’ve been to mid-coast Maine, you’ll enjoy this book
T Hanson Another great read by this author!,
When you begin reading this as with his first published (The Middle of Nowhere) you cannot stop. The detail
and descriptions of places, things and characters draw you into the "story" and you feel as though you are there.
The relationships that evolve and develop between characters are easily relatable to a reader's own experiences. I personally
like Barry's writing style because of that, and it keeps me intrigued as to "what's next"??? The main character
Anne Conrad leads the reader along her journey, and leaves you questioning "why" at many points. That is what captivates
the reader to continue along with her, to the end and the answers are what lie within so many of our own journeys. Can't wait
for the next novel by this author!
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. The characters were very likeable and the descriptions
put you right in the scene.
