With her unmatched gift for illuminating the joys and challenges of love and family, New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice now gives listeners a mesmerizing new novel that reaches back into the past to find the key to a boundless future. Neve Halloran and her daughter share a fierce love for the austere beauty of Rhode Island’s South County. Now, with Mickey a teenager and Neve’s last hope for happiness with her daughter’s loving but unstable father gone, both will struggle to make a new life together amid the windswept landscape that sustains them.

For the waters bear their own vestige of the past–and their ceaseless rhythms may point the way to hope and new beginnings. Lyrical, luminous, and utterly captivating, THE EDGE OF WINTER is Luanne Rice at her most penetrating and insightful, in a moving exploration of the bonds that shape us and set us free.

    " Rice is a favorite author of mine. This is one of her least complex books. A simple feel good story. The ending could have been more developed though. "

    " Loved the story, it was layout in a way you had a hard time knowing what would happen next. Life can be hard, be forgiving and try to always look for the good things in life, "

    " Decent easy, light read. I wish her writing and storylines were more like those she wrote when she first started, they just aren't the same to me. However, it was a fun, easy read. I think I am nearing my end of Luanne Rice reading days though...it seems she's exhausted all of her good ideas. "

    " Quite a fast, easy read. Fairly predictable but guess I need that this time of year. It brings up some history from WWII. The description of the East coast and the birds there was great. Wouldn't go out and buy this book, but someone gave it to me to enjoy then pass on. Glad I did read it. "

    " Wow. Incredibly repetitive. And pat.

    Interesting premise, but it felt like a verrrrrry long young adult read. Kind of sappy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Crystal | 11/13/2010

    " Listened to the audio book during a ten-hour road trip. It was a bit of a slow start but I as gripped by the narrative, as I made that long journey. "

    " I was bored with the whole story. If your into war and birds then this book is for you. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Czemina | 11/4/2010

    " Not a terribly exciting book, but I still enjoyed reading it because of my interest in nature and the beach. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dave | 11/3/2010

    " A pretty good read. A bit on the juvenile adult level, but not too bad. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 8/22/2010

    " Another great journey for mother and daughter!! loved this book! "

    " I always love stories that have a beach setting. As this takes place in the winter it was not your typical "beach read" but the seasonal difference was refreshing. I've never read anything Luanne Rice has written that I didn't thoroughly enjoy! "
