Goodreads:  Ten years after their college days together, three wounded and very different women reunite for a summer on the island of Martha's Vineyard. As they come to grips with the challenges and crises in their lives, their encounter with a reclusive poacher, known only as "the fisherman," forces them to confront their deepest beliefs and darkest fears.

Kritters Thoughts:  Three women - Dory, Charlotte and Turner reunite on Martha's Vineyard for a summer and each one of them is bringing baggage that hopefully they can avoid for a summer.  Although it started in quite a low spot, it picked up pace and completely turned a corner for me.  

Dory, Charlotte and Turner are all dealing with completely different issues.  I loved how they all had different things going on, but it didn't seem outrageous that three friends would be dealing with these things at the same time.  I loved how they each could help each other and had somewhat of unbiased views into each others problems.  

At times, I would almost categorize this in a semi Christian fiction way - don't want to reveal why, but having been raised in a Christian home, I definitely picked up on some things that made it an interesting read for me.  But beware there was definitely some sexy times, but nothing too erotic or out of place.  I would recommend this read with the knowledge that this definitely had some intimate moments.

Rating: definitely a good read, but can't read two in a row

Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received one copy of this book free of charge from TLC Book Tours.  I was not required to write a positive review in exchange for receipt of the book; rather, the opinions expressed in this review are my own.


  1. This sounds really interesting! Thanks for sharing!

    I hope to see you around my blog,


  2. It's such a wonderful thing to have friends who can offer unbiased and honest opinions like these three seem to do for each other.

    Thanks for being a part of the tour!
