Acclaimed novelist Anne Rivers Siddons's new novel is a stunning tale of love and loss. For as long as she can remember, they were Cam and Lilly--happily married, totally in love with each other, parents of a beautiful family, and partners in life. Then, after decades of marriage, it ended as every great love story does...in loss. After Cam's death, Lilly takes a lone road trip to her and Cam's favorite spot on the remote coast of Maine, the place where they fell in love over and over again, where their ghosts still dance. There, she looks hard to her past--to a first love that ended in tragedy; to falling in love with Cam; to a marriage filled with exuberance, sheer life, and safety-- to try to figure out her future.It is a journey begun with tender memories and culminating in a revelation that will make Lilly re-evaluate everything she thought was true about her husband and her marriage.
  • Siddons never disappoints! I love the way she wove magic throughout this story without it seeming silly or too far fetched. I love that I got to watch the main character grow up, and live an amazing life. I loved seeing her perspective change over the years, and the growth of the character. I think Siddons' books expand my empathy and make me more aware of how we are, each of us, like characters in her books.....works in progress. It calms and centers me, and I find I handle the stressors of my life with more grace and intelligence. This will be another of her books that I will re-read....probably many times. She is one of my favorite authors, and this book is one of her best, in my opinion.

  • This purchase was to send a copy to my mother. I have had my own copy for several years and it is a book a read at least once a year. I am absolutely sucked in by it every time too. The characters are wonderful, the locations are interesting and so well described. I love the mystical realism aspect of it. I have not a single bad thing to say about this book. I want to read more by Siddons, but am afraid none will live up to this level. The twists here and there kept the book moving. Can't recommend this book enough. I don't really read "chick lit," because I get so tired of the romance/love life aspects of them, but this one is so much more than that - and while a love story is at the heart of the book, somehow, it's not the same. It is a love story with a boy and a girl, yes, but it is also about a girl - woman - coming to terms with her own life and family. Just read it!

  • I thought there was too much detail about Maine. When the book abruptly ended, I was thankful for other book reviews so that I could figure out what happened. I agree with a lot of reviewers about all of their comments. Talking to the cat and getting a (verbal) response was tiresome. The father became overbearing. It took me 3 weeks to get through this book and I skimmed all the details. Again, thank you to other reviewers for helping me understand the ending. The author does write beautifully.

  • Ms. Siddons writes a compelling story. It had me gripped until the ending and know it will be alongside the next few days or more as I reflect upon the twists of the tale. From the beginning, the writing is exquisite with phrases that ring with poetry. Lily, protagonist, is vividly constructed along with her parents and the stormy young years of a first, wonderfully wrought love which ends tragically. This is followed not long after by the death of her mother, thrusting her and her professor father into a somnolent quietude with her faithful dog. The few years almost seem dream like until the entrance of Cam, whom she will marry. The two daughters and ensuing years are almost sketchy compared to the fullness of detail in the first part of Lily's life. But the finale, taking place in the childhood summer home in Maine, encapsulates and gives credence to the sometimes magical moments that Lily experiences and to which the reader is drawn thoughout the story. That ending slams the reader with an irony which reverberates.

  • I've read all of Siddon's novels, and this was one of the best. For anyone who spent summers in a special place, this story will cause all the best memories to come flooding back. If you cared about your summer place as much as I did, when Siddons writes "where we lived was just a place to wait for summer" or something to that effect, you'll get gooseebumps,too. The descriptions of that special place not only illicit visions, but aromas, and you'll find yourself straining to breathe the salt sea air - and yearn to rock on Lilly's porch, snuggled up with a cat that speaks a language only Lilly can hear. Lilly takes us through her growing up years - all the wonder of them and all the pain. In many ways, Lilly's innermost feelings and concerns are so like every woman's - although, thank goodness, we have not all experienced her painful times.

    I was in tune with this story right up to several pages from the end, and there, I could not understand why it had to become "twisty". I, like another reviewer, found myself going back and re-reading the last third of the book to see if I had just missed the clues that would have made the ending more acceptable. As it was, I was mouthing, "Oh, no...." and wishing I could feel better about it all.

    The ending is the reason to take off that fifth star, but should not deter you from taking the time to read this book. I guarantee total immersion in Lilly's world, which is so beautifully described that you can't help but feel you are standing beside her, gazing far out to sea, and breathing cool, salty air! For those of us who couldn't make it to the beach this year, this book offered a marvelous trip without tracking in any sand at all!
