After her husband Ben's tragic death at the age of 36, Gina Melrose becomes a live-aboard on his boat. Docked at a South Carolina marina, a grieving Gina settles into a strange, temporary, borrowed existence. But this stillness is dramatically shattered late one night when Ben's ex-wife, Reese, disrupts Gina's world of quiet isolation.

With Reese, once described by Ben as a wild child, comes her daughter: an enigmatic little girl called Angel. After a horrendous start, Gina realizes that, strange as it may seem, she's drawn to both Reese and Angel. As both pain and joy re-enter her world for the first time since Ben's death, Gina takes tentative steps towards the land of the living. This tender, poignant novel movingly explores the resilience of hope and the meaning of family.

    " This would make a great beach read. Just enough content in the plot to keep you going, but not keep you up at night. "

    " Interesting story - I did have a little trouble with the excessive and unnecessary profanity. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 8/22/2008

    " I enjoyed this book. It is about a two women who were both married to the same man at different times, but this man dies. They hate eachother at first, but then the story takes an interesting twist and I honestly couldn't put it down towards the end. "

    " Interesting change of pace from many of today's books. It had romance, but it also had many other life experiences, which could have different consequences if any one little detail had been handled differently. "
