The author took great pains to develop characters that have true depth! Great read
This was the best book I have read in a long time. The depth of the characters and the descriptions of the area were both heartwarming and gut wrenching. A wonderful read.
I have always enjoyed Kirsten Hannah books; however this is the most depressing, implausible book I’ve read in a long time. The storyline was horrible and just kept getting worse; I continued reading thinking it would have to get better but it never did. The information about life in Alaska was interesting; however the storyline was so depressing, so frustrating, and so predictable it was horrible. I absolutely do not recommend this book!
Loved this book! Great summer read! Didn’t want to put it down!
Excellent! Typical Kristen Hannah - page turner and never dissatisfied! I’ve read all her books. I even full on cried in this read!
I fell in love immediately with this book and could not put it down. It was so well written, I felt I was in Alaska looking into a world laid out for me. Absolutely the best book I’ve ever read!!!
Wonderful story, authentic characters, lovely, and spare writing. Loved learning more about wild and beautiful Alaska and the kind of people who live there. Thank you, Kristen, it was a pleasure.
The author has an amazing ability of making the reader care about her characters. The characters are so well developed that if you close your eyes you can almost see and hear them like they are real people. The story was riveting and packed with actual location in and around Homer Alaska and the Kenai peninsula. I have told every reader I know about this wonderful piece of historical fiction. Now to find another book by Kristin Hannah.
This story was beautiful. I highly recommend this book. I couldn’t put the book down. It reflects every human emotion.
I just love Kristen Hannah’s stories. I love the details and the strong characters. This one does not disappoint.
This book was hard to put down. The characters were real and let you live with them. I am never disappointed when I read this authors books.
I couldn’t put this book down. It’s a wonderful story of love, how complicated life can be, of forgiveness, of the love between a mother& her child, of loss and renewal. Ms. Hannah has created characters with depth, sympathy. The story of life in Alaska was fascinating. One thing - have tissues handy, the end of this story will get your tears flowing. Highly recommend!
