This is such a beautiful, beautiful romance story; one with very believable characters dealing with real-life situations. I don't want to go into too much detail about the story. But..... I will say that what I loved about it the most about this story, was that there was no instant fixes. No instant love connection, either. Friendship, sure. Total trust between the two, you betcha'...but there was no sudden claims about instantly falling in love, even after sharing one night of heated passion together.
They did what they thought was right at the time for them, and decided not to jump into marriage just because that's what others would have expected.
This book was absolutely the sweetest love story I have read recently, and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
I love being able to relate with the characters and the situations in a story; the summer friendship that become a vital part of someone’s life. Growing up together summer after summer, counting on someone that knows you better than yourself.
The story is very well written, has many touching moments ( bittersweet too, as life itself ); romance ( there are sex scenes, though not too explicit ) and a very sweet ending.
Made me think of the people in my life, those who are "safe harbors" to me. This book is definitely going to "Favorites" collection in my kindle. Loved it!
This is one of the most unusual romances I've ever read. Ms. Arnold hooked me instantly, and I found myself immersed in the story of two children from different backgrounds spending summers together--growing up together--on Block Island. When love between them emerges, heartbreak soon follows...and follows.
I've come late to this party and so find it unnecessary to list plot elements in my review. You can read all about them in others posted here. I will say this: Ms. Arnold wrote a story here incorporating strong, personal psychological elements, which resonated deeply with me. The power of forgiveness, the ability to forget, the willingness to trust, and the need to embrace life as it is, not as it might have been, are all captured to perfection in this book. I look forward to reading it again, and to reading more of Judith Arnold's titles. She is an excellent writer.
The story then picks up fifteen-years later and we discover that Kip also has a past to overcome. The friendship is the corner stone Kip uses to build back his life. And still, something is missing.
This is a beautiful romance, with believable characters in real-life situation. It is sweet without being cloying. I especially liked that the problems are not resolved overnight and that the author allowed the passage of time to heal some wounds.
I did not find the formating distracting but noted a few spelling and grammar mistakes. I agree with the other reviewers that Kindle editing should be as good as a paper book. Still, don't let format keep you from enjoying this book.
The two main characters were well developed and the dialogue felt real, not forced. There was the right amount of angst and joy to give the story depth. You knew where it was leading from the very beginning but it still felt fresh and exciting when it all came together. It was different yet realistic.
I expected a complete "fluff" read and instead was treated to substance. I'll read more of Ms. Arnold's books. The free download made it easy to take a chance and I'm glad I did.
