In her efforts to rebuild both her life and a ramshackle house on the harbor, Roberta endures violence, betrayal, and her share of pain. But she also finds love, friendship, and acceptance from a most unlikely source.

    " Love the main character and what she had to overcome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 2/1/2014

    " Someone gave me this book. I think it might be a romance novel. I would probably never pick this out, but it was in my pile of books, so I read it. I surprisingly enjoyed it. Predictable, yes, but I liked the idea of a divorcee (with a child) in 1916 buying a car and having a career. Spunky character who doesn't follow what society dictates. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda French | 1/18/2014

    " I love everything this author has written. It is my understanding that she no longer writes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula Mitchell | 1/14/2014

    " This book was really captivating. We follow the life of Roberta and her daughters and Gabriel and his daughter Isobel. While the two main characters try to deal with their feelings Roberta is determined that she doesn't need a man for anything. Whatever a man can do she can do better. Gabriel has spent 7 years mourning his wife and finds Roberta sparking things in him that have long since been dormant. When times come to it, Roberta and Gabriel making a stand to the townfolks. Showing them that not everything is what it seems, and how small time gossip can sometimes do more harm than good. "

    " As good, if not better, than the Notebook. I loved this story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 1/5/2014

    " The reader in this audio book reminded me so much of Dick Estelle, the radio reader on WKAR that I used to listen to back when I lived in Lansing; I got rather nostalic listening to him and it felt very comfortable. Wasn't sure what to make of this book at first--was it a romance? a message novel?--but ended up liking it a lot. There is one very rough scene but I think it was needed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cat | 1/1/2014

    " A good story about a strong woman who returns to her home town with her young daughters after being divorced. Since it is set in the early 1900's, a divorced woman is looked upon as being rather loose, and it's no different in this book. But Mrs. Jewitt is strong willed and very much a survivor. Her household is in contant chaos with her children and all the other children they bring home to play with. She has a rather unorthodox way of parenting. There is always action in this household; singing, dancing, and just plain horsing around. I particularly like how the kids create plays from some part of a book or poem they like and then and act them out for the people of the town to see. When Mrs. Jewitt meets the carpenter who is going to fix her house up they start realizing they are falling in love but they have some trials and tribulations they will go through before that can happen. So without giving away the whole story line I will just say that I really like Mrs. Jewitt (the divorced woman). She is brave, fun, hard headed and independent. A good read, I really enjoyed it. "

    " I enjoyed this book. I felt that I was right there in the story, the way that LaVyrle Spencer describes everything. The romance aspect is just enough, but not overbearing. The comical side was sweet and just right. "

    " My first Spencer book, I chose it for Seasonal Reading Challenge. I spent a few days in Camden this past summer and read this to bring some of that back to me.

    OK story and characters but a bit over the top on New England reserve, I think she wanted to be writing the new Peyton Place. "
