My normal genre is the good ol' thriller, serial killer, suspense novel and I have a long list of authors that keep me waiting for their next work. Every once in a while, I take a chance on a different journey with a book. Trying to give myself the opportunity to peer into a more sensitive and emotional level with an author and his (or her) characters and story. I'm very glad I took the chance with "Learning to Swim". I thoroughly enjoyed it and felt the tug on my heart strings - as a middle aged work-a-holic, it's nice to give them a workout every once in a while! I'm waiting anxiously for the next book by Mr Hambric....and the next...

Do yourself a favor. Pick up this book and spend some time with these people. Learn to swim with them, float in their lives for a time. You will be glad you did. The gift of any great novel is to engage the reader in a way that leaves an impression long after the final word on the page. Learning To Swim chronicles the lives of people scarred by tragedy but not defined by it. They and you come out the other end better somehow, changed and renewed. Which is exactly the power most of us hope for in a book, but so seldom find. Read this one, you'll find yourself some new friends and you'll think about them often.

This story is a wonderful story, full of emotion and lessons to be learned The characters are so real and the story believable. I could not stop reading it and did not want it to end.

I am a native of New Hamshire and Squam Lake, this made the setting very special.

I highly recommend this story.

Hats off to the author.

I have not read a book that has finer characterization. Even the two ducks have a profound meaning in the story. I was a little confused by the shift in time, but that made it all the more intriguing and believable. For the female lead, this was, after all, not a change that happened over a summer vacation.
I do not believe you can read this book, get caught up in the lives of the protagonists and their children and not care. And that is what it is all about, isn't it?
I strongly recommend this book

I thought this book was an interesting and thought provoking novel. It was a great message for anyone who has lived or is living their life in an apprehensive manner because of fear, shame, or unworthiness. Things you think you can't do you find you can when you're willing to take a risk. Hannah felt she and her daughter required over protection, caution, and limited exploration of life based upon Hannah's upbringing, which consisted of significant loss and tragedy. But Hannah's trust in the love of her life, (Aidan) taught her how to live life to the fullest, without regrets....he taught her How to Swim before he passed away. What a great gift to leave her with.

I didn't like the way the book concluded. .....it seemed to just stop abruptly. It also was a little disjointed in the way it flowed from chapter to chapter.

I started this book because of a mutual friend of the author, but before long, I was no longer in my own camp, but off to the shore for summer vacations with Hannah, Aidan, Lil, and the others. I laughed and excitedly shared their adventures, sensed and feared the dangers, shared the love, and cried when anyone of them was hurt or lost. I longed for resolution of the unatainable love relationship. I couldn't believe how I was captivated by this book, how I related and was drawn deeply into it whenever I could find a moment or two. I am still wondering how author Treavor could understand the deep and intimate feelings of the female in this struggle, and paint such a clear and intricately detailed picture of places, things, and happenings. I have acquired great admiration for the author, and will surely seek to find his next book.

This wonderful, romantic novel had me gripped from start to finish. I couldn't wait to learn how the next phase of the story would unravel. The beautiful scenery of New Hampshire was so elegantly depicted, and it made the perfect setting for this tale of growth and self discovery. I learned a lot about myself from these characters who, right from the beginning, felt like close friends. This is a great read. I highly recommend escaping from the daily grind of life and dipping into the lakes of NH to learn to swim!

I liked this book because it was how people should handle difficult situations like falling in love with somebody else's spouse. Responsible decisions that don't hurt the other folks in the families involved. Nobody can help being attracted to another person, but how they conduct themselves is something you can help. I found the writing beautiful, the words sometimes inspirational, and it was just as good the second time around. To hold your heart constant for years without selfishness is difficult, but certainly attainable.
