The Beach House by Jane Green
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book was a fun and easy read for me, especially after the last book I had read. It is a book about marriage, family, broken hearts, love, forgiveness, and family roots. The book is centered around the life of Nan Powell, a widow for many years who lives in a large house in Nantucket. What a beautiful backdrop to a great story. Nan is an eccentric and mysterious woman who takes everyone she meets by surprise. She is struggling financially and decides to rent rooms in her house out for the summer. What she doesn't realize is that the people she finds to rent the rooms need her as much as she needs them. There are many twists in turns throughout the book, ones that I could really relate to.
I enjoyed the book, but thought the book was predictable at times. The author made me feel like I was sitting on the beach reading this great story of life and love. I only wished I had been reading it on the beach in Nantucket. I enjoyed the peacefulness the book gave me and kept me reading. I loved the ending and wished it would have kept going . . .
