It was a raining day and I was feeling very sorry for myself over the loss of my husband when I picked this book up to read. I like the other review though ok it will be girl finds love and changes life. What I found was a wonderfully written story of yes girl new boy, but for me it went beyond that.
Ellen, a Manhattan attorney, who loves her grandmother agrees to delivery a letter to Beacon, Maine to someone who she knows nothing about, Chet Cummings. When Ellen starts her trip it was get there delivery the letter and return to New York and her fiance Hayden and finish planning her wedding.
What she finds is the beauty of Maine, so very well described by Ms. Simses, a uncomplicated life of people in the small town of Beacon. Ellen soon realizes that a lot of things in her grandmother's life were not as she had been told. As Ellen begins finding her Grandmother's secrets, she begins to unravel her life and begins to really look at where she is and where she would like to be.
It is hard to write a review as you don't want to give away too much of the story, but let me say for me; I also thought back on my life, where I had been, where I was now. Would I have made changes, who wouldn't. The author Mary Simses grabs you almost on the first page and leaves you wanting more on the last.
Be an individual, read this wonderful story for yourself. You may not agree with me, but I pray that Ms. Simses continues her writing and gives us another story soon.
As Ellen attempts to deliver the letter entrusted to her, she stumbles upon some surprising tidbits about her grandmother's past. Wanting to know more, Ellen decides to extend her stay in Beacon, which does not sit well with Hayden, the aforementioned fiancé, or her mother who's deep in the throes of wedding planning mania. While uncovering more eye-opening info on her grandmother, Ellen begins to discover long-buried desires of her own. The parallels between what happened when Ruth was younger and the personal crossroads Ellen finds herself at made for a compelling story. I thought it was interesting that even though the two women seemed very much alike (both having a creative side), in the end they needed to choose different paths in life in order to be happy.
The author's writing style was beautiful, very descriptive and evocative. Her words transported me to all the spots in Beacon that Ellen visited. Having said that, I will confess that I struggled with the pacing of the book. It started out very exciting with the drowning scene, then things slowed way down and the narrative was in Ellen's head a lot as she delved into her grandmother's history. And when Hayden became a strong presence in the story, I felt like skipping pages because I just didn't like the character (He was uptight, controlling, and worst of all, whiny.), nor did I like Ellen when she was around him. Fortunately, I hung in there and I really enjoyed how the last quarter of the book played out.
If you're a fan of stories about women's emotional journeys, especially ones set in charming small towns, pick up a copy of The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe. I will be interested to see what author Mary Simses writes next.
