What a great book! Ms Mallery has written a wonderful "friendship" book. I want to say I cried for both bad times and the good times too! Great book when you can feel all the emotions while reading it.
Michelle's family owned Barefoot Island Inn and she loved it! She left at 18 to join the army and now 10 years later she's back to run the place. Michelle was wounded both physically and emotionally but was going home.
Her one time best friend, Carly, was living and working at the Inn. She had worked with Michelle's Mom while Michelle was gone but now she was back and Carly knew she was going to have to leave but she didn't have anywhere to go and with her daughter life was going to be tough if they left.
Michelle and Carly have so much to work out between them after the true dirty dealing of their parents. Can they learn to forget what these last few years had been like? Can Michelle overcome her pain from the army? Can these two learn to live the good life as friends? They had been for many years.
I enjoyed watching these 2 circle each other and find that no one else would be at their back and side. Wonderful characters and Carly's Gabby, 10 year old daughter, is another cute but fun child. Ms Mallery has given us some great characters to cheer on in life and they do need it!
Don't want to give away any of the book--it's so good! I couldn't put it down and sure I'll be reading it again before long. It's a keeper and will be on that shelf.
