Started & left at the summer place again. By the reviews it's a love it or hate it book so it will be interesting to find out which side I end up on.

Tried to get back into it, but couldn't scrape up any interest to keep going.

This book was okay, but could have been SO much better. It was hard to get into because of the way it was written. I think that had the book been told from the eyes of only one narrator, perhaps just Mike, then it would have been better. The potential for a good plot is there, the author just didn't take advantage. Mike and Anna's affair came out of the blue, even though it was integral to the story and what happened to Silas. The cameraman remained a mystery until the end, even tho he too was important to the story. I'm all for giving Anita Shreve a "do-over" for this book and letting her write it again and tell the story better.… (plus d'informations)

Could NOT finish this book. Did not like it. Will try some of her other books...hope it was the book and not the author.

Anita Shreve once again brings us the story of woman fenced in by the dictates about women’s place during the Post World II era who comes into her own, drawing on inner strength and character her husband wants to squash. Thoroughly enjoyable. The literary world has lost a star with Ms. Shreve’s death.
