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!
