March Murray returns to her New England hometown after living in
for nineteen years. She brings along her
sixteen year-old daughter. She meets
Hollis—the man she loved so desperately as a teenager. He has gone from a homeless teenager to a man
who owns half the town and demands respect from everyone he meets. Can they make love work this time (despite
March’s husband who remains in California )? California
Appalling themes exists in this book…abuse in the name of love, greed, revenge, knowingly helping someone ruin their life, not to mention the sexual relationship that goes unnoticed between March’s daughter and her first cousin. I found no redeeming value in this book. Why did I keep reading? I couldn’t believe that a book with that many accolades couldn’t have some redeeming value. Don’t bother.
