"A wonderful debut novel ... Abbott's prose spoke of the truths of human experience: the poignancy of aging, nostalgia, betrayals, all the messy things of human nature, as well as the beautiful and uplifting, family love and loyalty, the promise of eternal love, the beauty of reconciliation." -- Julia Grantham, author and reviewer
"Lest you think this was just a 'nice' read for me, let me disabuse you of that notion. I had chills and tears aplenty. When I say I cared about all of the characters, I mean just that. I felt an emotional connection to each and every one. That doesn't happen all that much. But it did here." -- Lloyd Russell, The Book Sage
"Abbott did a fine job of writing a first novel with compelling characters and a refreshingly interesting take on the lives of people over the age of thirty-five. I found myself completely caught up in the story." -- Kim Hornsby, author of The Dream Jumper's Promise
"The characters are extremely interesting and believable, and the well-crafted descriptions are evocative of the spectacular Sanibel Island I remember from my many visits there." -- David Barton, author of Bringing Jane Home
"By far one of the best books I've read this year." -- Amazon Reviewer
