to @barbaradelinsky on the release of
Genre: Women’s Fiction
After a tragedy that ended in the death of a neighbor, Elizabeth, 20 years ago, two sisters, Margo and Mallory, left town while Anne, the youngest, remained. Now, after receiving a disturbing phone call from the neighbor’s son, Jack, who was also Mallory’s high school sweetheart, she returns with her 13 year old daughter, Joy. What really happened all those years ago, and will the sisters finally discover the truth before it’s too late? “Every memory is real, but not all are based on fact.” A Week at the Shore was absorbing in many ways. Not only does it delve into the complexity of real and raw family relationships, but it also includes a bit of a mystery surrounding the long ago accident. There were some twists I did not see coming, and despite the page length, it was a fairly quick read. Lastly, since I’m a sucker for stories about young lovers reuniting later in life, I was touched by that aspect as well.
