This one sounds lovely. Thanks for the review. That straw isn't sticing out of your hat. And, since she likes to do books with strong characters, I'm a fan. I read for character.

You rang some bells with this review I can't say I've never read Luanne Rice, but my memory is of not wanting to spend too much time on others. However, I too really read for characters and your review has convinced me it's probably time to give this author another look.
I hope you enjoy it, Tina, as much as I did. Maybe the other books you read just didn't fit your mood at the time. I haven't read anything by this author yet either, but this one sounds really good. Thanks for a great review. As I said, this was my first one by her, but I was sucked in immediately.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I loved this story of three sisters: Darrah, Delia, and Rory. Theirs is held together by a family summer place even as they are losing that place. It is held together because the place allowed them to really know each other.
It is most of all, a story about resolving a childhood wound that occurred when they lost their father, and what happens when they seek that resolution. This action helps each one to move on in their individual stories, as imperfectly perfect as each life is. What will happen to these three women?
What part will the men in their lives play? It is worth a read to find out. Luanne Rice has crafted depth, breadth, and height in the characters and development of this story.
The Silver Boat
Like fine painting with texture, the whole story suggests and reveals at the same time. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. I wanted to love this book. I love Martha's Vineyard and have spent many magical days there. The plot seemed really fascinating, too. But I was never really able to bond with the characters on any level.
They were so flat I just did not care what happened to them one way or the other. This was really a missed opportunity for a great story. This is a nice story about an Irishman and his daughters. I have read many of Ms. Rice's books, and although the story was good for some reason I did not enjoy it quite as much as others of hers. It was not a page turner for me. I did enjoy their trip to Ireland and hoping for a romance with that handsome Tim. It was poignant with a sweet ending. I've read every book she's written because her writing portrays an almost romantic feeling of living there, the family ties, but also showing the reality of challenges every family faces.
I'll visit the New England area someday. I already know what it will feel like! Rice's descriptive language about the sea, wind, and an artist's rendering in ink or watercolor was more than delightful. The plot held me and the characters were three-dimensional.

One person found this helpful. If you enjoy books with great characters and a special story to go along with them then this book is for you. If you don't like a lot of descriptive wording, this book isn't for you. The basic story is a good one, but it is often lost with overly descriptive writing.
