Editorial Reviews

Review


"When finally I put the book down, I felt as if I'd been totally transported to another world, and then returned--sort of the way I feel when coming out of the theatre after being immersed in a really good movie."

"I also particularly admired your deft handling of plot and subplot. There was so much going on in the book. . .it was as if you were an expert juggler juggling many balls at a time and never once letting one drop." 

Elizabeth Winthrop, author of  FIREWORKS, THE WHY OF THINGS, AND DECEMBER

At first I thought the story started rather slow, but then I realized it was just setting the tone. There are so many stories and back stories going on in this one book. Each character was keeping secrets from someone, secrets that could have changed their lives. Some of these have been held for fifty and sixty years, while others for much shorter. I would recommend this story to others, but I would tell them to be patient the story will suck you in and the wait will be worth it.

Rose Beach, a summer home, a place where the magic of warm weather, family, friends and life happens.

This story is a retrospective of lives well lived, heartwarming, heartbreaking and unforgettable.

I loved this book and didn't want it to end.

The tale is about a couple that are in their late 70's and have been married for 60 years. There is a secret that must be divulged and you wonder how it's going to effect several lives.
Very good fast read. Good one to curl up with.

I thought I wouldn't like this book when I discovered that the main characters were in their 80s, but was I wrong. The characters were so real life and as a 60 year old woman, I could appreciate Helen's attitude about sex and other priorities in life.

I predict this will be the first of many must-reads by David Slone.

As an accomplished photographer, David has proven he has the ability to capture those special moments in time one can revisit easily and often by just gazing at his work. The shutter on his camera must shout to him `carpe diem.' And now he is showing us the same talent with his pen.

The reader is left desperately hungry for more. Helen will live forever in your mind and heart. The only quench for the thirst will be Book #2.

Readers of all ages will simply enjoy this story of summer life as the author captures all those 'special moments' worth retelling. I know the setting is a real place, but it's hard to believe the characters are mere compositions of text on a page. Each character in the book is so interesting, and with a deeper story to tell. Perhaps we will learn about them all in the future?

Mr. Slone: encore please!

This book reminds me of a Nickolas Sparks type book. It takes place in the 50-60s in a summer colony. The people are real and I want a sequel!!! The only reason I gave it 4 stars and not 5 was because the author wasted too many words and pages on the tennis match....which was great to read but too long.

Author David Slone creates a wonderful slice of summer life in New England. The plot and characters are carefully woven together in a story told across the lifetime of a woman at odds with her past and her future. All of the main and subordinate characters are developed appropriately and comfortably. Perhaps the most intriguing "character" is the summer community itself. The seasonal neighborhood becomes the grounding force of memories, both good and bad, and reminds us all of our summer experiences throughout life, wherever they may have been.

Rose Beach takes you to a time and place that is an idealistic quintessential Rhode Island seaside village, yet is very real. I loved how the main characters jump from their youthful carefree teen years on summer vacation to a beautiful aging couple challenged with moving out of their beloved summer home so rich in stories and life and death. I will never see a fire fly again without thinking of Rose Beach. Can't wait to read David Slone's next creation!
