From the beloved New York Times bestselling Luanne Rice comes a heartwarming yet heart-wrenching portrait of three far-flung sisters who come home to Martha’s Vineyard one last time. Their mother’s beach house is the only place any of them ever found true happiness and they need to begin the difficult process of letting go. Memories of their grandmother, mother, and their Irish father, who sailed away the year Dar turned twelve, rise up and expose the fine cracks in their family myth, especially when a cache of old letters reveals enough truth to send them back to their ancestral homeland.

Transplanted into the unfamiliar, each sister sees life, her heart, and her relationship to home in a new way. But how do they let go of a place that contains the complicated love of their imperfect family? Without the house, where will they be together?

The novel is a season on Martha’s Vineyard, a mission to Ireland,  a cast of friends (including one wildly off-the-grid Zen genius), passionate love in the surf, and three very different sisters with lives filled with beauty, sorrow, and deep love they’d never been quite sure they could trust. The Silver Boat is Luanne Rice at her very best, complete with her singular talent for capturing a family in all its flawed complexity.

    " I honestly can not even review this one...That's how much I truly did not enjoy it at all...It was depressing, slow, and just didn't draw me in at all...I've seen so many books by this author and this one was my first time trying to read one...I don't know if it's just this one that was a complete miss for me or if these types of books just aren't my reading preference...Once again I was suck in by such a gorgeous cover, which it is, it looks even more stunning in person...lol...But, what was inside was so disappointing to me...I can't believe I actually finished this one...I hate giving bad ratings, but, I would assume we're supposed to be honest so that's why I feel like I have to do this...I know Ms' Rice's books are extremly popular maybe I'm not mature enough to read them...And I'm almost 35...lol...

    " I love the writings of Luanne Rice, but this was definately not one of her best. It was a slow read. I can usually finishing her books in a day or two this one took me a while. It was good but not her best. "

    " I don't think I'll read any more of her books. I skimmed most of this one. "
