Maybe I expected too much of this story, because I read another book by this author and really loved it. With this one, there were too many places that rambled. I began skimming through because I wanted to see how it all turned out, but it just didn't hold my interest. Then there was that one scene early on with the teenager, Matthew. His sister and her friend were listening to him through the wall -- what did that have to do with the story? For me, it was like finding a hair in the food. You know it was probably harmless, but you wish it hadn't of been there because it spoiled the enjoyment of the meal. Also, I didn't like the main character.

The novel jumped from present to past and back quite often, which was confusing. I can only read for a short time in order to work it in throughout my days, so it was difficult to keep track of when the events happened. There were a lot of names in the book as well -- the young teenage girl interacts with her mother, then as an adult, she interacted with her daughter -- I would have to stop and think, "is this taking place when she was a kid, or as an adult," because the time period jumped around so often.

I do recommend her other book, "Three Moons over Sedona." Every page held my interest, and really enjoyed reading it.

Let me preface this review by stating I felt the writing itself was just about flawless I cannnot find anything I would critique about it. This book brought my emotions to the fore front for sure. I so related to the h and her teen daughter's behavior you didn't know whether to kiss or kill her, the same goes for the h mother....I wanted to duct take her mouth more than once and also cry for her pain. I will say that for those of you that cannot take death and depression this book is not for you it is reality personified at times. The story was realistic about coping with young peoples as well as old folks deaths, divorce, lost love it was very painful to read. I cried buckets full of tears for this one. There was deceit, lies, love and hate you name it this book had it. You will want to rip peoples hair out and kick others in the crotch when their down. You will want to hug, kiss and take others pain from them it just drags every emotion out of you. I just wanted to help the characters healso badly. I pride myself in solving Claudia's secret within the first 33% of the book and really hated her for the way she handled. It's the next day after reading the book and I still am mad at her and the ones she confided in. Wild horses couldn't keep me from revealing that kind of secret to one of my loved ones no matter what pain it may cause they had the right to know. Lies and secrets tend to come back and bite you in the back I look forward to a sequel and hope this is addressed somehow. My thanks to the author for the nights entertainment I stayed up untill 2am to finish it, then couldn't sleep thinking about it finally at 4am I snoozed. Happy Reading, Enjoy as I did.

P.S. Sorry for typing issues I have a broken finger and hard to navigate... no I didn't break it while reading this. lol

I highly recommend it and was soooo happy to have been able to download it for free. Cudo's to you author for this work of art.

After I read THREE MOONS OVER SEDONA, I had to read ISLAND PASSAGE. Ms. Hartzler has a way of touching one's heart with her words. I loved the setting of Middle Bass Island, one of the Lake Erie Islands.

So much about Francine and Claudia's friendship, summers on the island, that struck a personal chord for me as I think it will for all women who read this fine book...connections of the sort that are neither severed by the passing of time nor distances that separate...a line from the book is now permanently etched in my mind: "...an acute awareness that life never gives anyone the chance to live one moment of it over again"...how true...carpe diem, grab the bull by the horns, and "face the music"...all there! Bravo!

The author does a really good job writing from women's perspectives, be it 15 year old girls or 40+ women. No sugarcoating, no political correctness, just an honest story with of course a bit of romance (okay, quite a lot of romance) in it.
I downloaded it because I wanted a break from reading tons of technical material and statistics (for work), so I wanted something that wouldn't be too heavy and I was not dissapointed. It could have done with a bit of humour, because it was all quite serious, but I really liked the way the author described how relationships developed: very realistic and (I think) very recognizable for a lot of women. Job well done!

This is the first book by this author that I've read. I was delighted by how real the characters felt. So many women depending on each other for love, understanding and at times a shoulder. Sweet

After reading Three Moons Over Sedona, I could not wait to read Sherry's next book Island Passage. This book did not disappoint once again! I'm sure most women can relate to the storyline. Australia is looking forward to your next book Sherry :)
