" Kristin Hannah is probably one of my all time favorite authors. She has this amazing ability to pour her heart and soul into her characters and just make you fall in love with them. This book is no exception to that as the main woman, Elizabeth (or as everyone calls her Birdie), is such a moving and wonderful character that you instantly feel for her. Distant Shores takes you on a very emotional ride through one family's ups and downs and looks at a marriage that hasn't necessarily fallen apart, but isn't quite all there. It's truly a beautiful story. "
