This book definitely makes for an interesting and enjoyable read. Without giving away too much of the plot, I especially liked the use of Freya as a behind-the-scenes agent whose impact was to cement Leslie's and Marshall's love affair (although that was not her intention!), and the author utilizes an interesting 'time warp' effect in relating the story of these intriguing characters. I must admit that as I was reading I was waiting for some sort of huge climactic event -- a car crash that kills the lovers, or one of them is diagnosed with cancer and the heroic battle that might follow -- but realized at the end that these 'special effects' were not required. It is a story of multifaceted love told very well, and does not need a hit to the solar plexus to make it work.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Girl on the Ferry. I found myself not wanting the book to end. Freya, Leslie and Marshall are strong characters with a poignant story. We could all use a friend like Leslie and Marshall and it is their story told from the eyes of Frey with so much insight, love and respect. It is a heartening story about good people. I loved every page. Well done, Mr. Reid. I will be waiting eagerly for his next novel.

Took me by surprise, right from the publisher's note. Call me sentimental or a romantic, whatever, I enjoyed this. I thought it was creative...I loved the sense of the old lady narrating the story, very Titanic-esque. I agree with plr1's comments, it's nice to read something good from a new author not the usual John Grisham. I look forward to the next. Support this guy!

I can only imagine that this is a self-published book. The characters are interesting and their stories, when you get to read about them, are engaging. But the writing has so many out-and-out mistakes that I found those mistakes to be a significant distraction when reading. The author, Reid, does a bit of a cop-out (?) when he has the female narrator begin to "dictate" the story to a male assistant. She apologizes if the narration changes to a male voice. Perhaps sustaining the voice of the 94-year-old female narrator was just too difficult for Reid? If you want an interesting story, infused with tangents, and you don't mind grammar and spelling errors, you might enjoy this book.

I stumbled upon this book by chance and got drawn in by the cover artwork (did anyone else get surprised by the hidden face of a woman which appears in the right light?). It ended up being a convincing and compelling story....genuinely moving....makes one re-examine your own life friendships. A great book by a new author.

I have read several of Reid's short stories and was happy to see that he had written a new, longer piece of fiction. I was not disappointed. The longer medium really allowed Reid to expand on his characterization and plot points. The perspective from which the story is written is unique which is quite a bonus. I really like this book.

So I belong to this book club, and we read the Girl on the Ferry by JD Reid. (I like his books and the kindle format. ) Anyway, its a compelling love story between Leslie and Marshall, as told by Leslie's jealous and frustrated best friend, Freya. Unlike the rest of the club, I found her a little tough to get used to but really liked the style of the book after Freya's Forward. All told, great characters great story, well done JD Reid.

This is an interesting and entertaining read involving a unique love triangle along with a unique method of relating it. Freya is quite a character who's insights are thoughtful even if a bit prickly at times. Bottom line: A tale with love, heartbreak, compassion and acceptance that could serve as a moral template in today's world. Reid's best work yet!
