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.
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.
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!
The book moves around from 1968, when Francine was 10 years old to 1998 when she is 40 years old. Francine spent all of her summers on Middle Bass Island with her family, including her brother, Matthew and her friend, Claudia. Their lives intertwine but yet were also distant during those 30 years. I don't want to give any of the plot away so will only mention that there is healing and great realization of the past in this book.
I loved all of the characters, even when I was annoyed with Francine's insensitivity, I still understood who she was. Claudia and Marian were definitely my favorite characters and I felt like there was a message for me with their life lessons.
The ending of the book had a special surprise that I did not see coming. How delightful for the author to shock me! This is a book that I will remember for a long time.
There were several great recipes at the end of the book.

Not too many characters to follow which I prefer
Simple uncomplicated story line
I would recommend this book
Not as good a Three Moons over Sedona, but a quick, easy and romantic read. Three Moons shows that Ms. Hartzler's writing is improving and I am eager to watch her style develop.Published on August 8, 2014 by Katie
found this very interesting as the story revealed the generations and the setting. I recommend it to anyone interested in family dynamics.Published on August 3, 2014 by Clara Saulitis
