There are no expectations for George, he simply wants to the see the country and rediscover America, but what he actually discovers is himself and a world he thought was long gone. He comes across a stray dog, something that doesn’t fit into his new vagabond existence, but turns into a much needed companion on his journey. He discovers his perceptions of people in general are wrong, and with each new acquaintance, he is forced to reevaluate.
As usual, Tom Winton’s writing is descriptive and imaginative, you actually feel as if you’re sitting in the passenger seat of that old clunky van, riding right along with the main character. This is a soulful and meandering tale that leaves the reader thinking about it for days after you’ve finished the book.
Typically I receive books for free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review, however if I find an author whose work is exceptional, I will purchase their novels from that point forward. That is the case with Mr. Winton’s work. I purchased A New Dawn in Deer Isle and was not disappointed. See all our reviews at (...) at (...)
Readers who enjoy books with older characters (Baby Boomer age), road trips, and introspective narrative will definitely like this touching story. The author's voice is conversational, as if telling a story to a friend, and the book is an easy, engrossing, and true-to-life read.
I'll look for more books by this author.
The most interesting facets (to me, anyway) in this book involved the misconceptions and stereotypical judgements of the lead character, Mr. McLast, of people he saw and met, based simply upon the way they looked. McLast was forced to reconsider and amend his preconceptions after simply meeting and talking to people he initially judged to be inferior or undesirable of character based upon his initial assumptions. I felt a cheer each time this happened.
As always with Tom Winton's books, I found myself thoroughly engrossed while enjoying the tale he told. I would give it five stars and recommend the book to friends.
Thank you, Mr. Winton, for another greatly satisfying read.
On this journey we reminiscence about places he has been and experience he had with them, we see love bloom and and life shared with someone that comes into his life both in person and animal form. We take away his message of doing what you can when you can as you never know what the future holds.
This was an enjoyable story of hope and resilience.
