Trying to find her footing again, she has answered an advertisement to tutor the teenage daughter of a well-to-do couple as they spend a sultry summer in their oceanfront New Hampshire cottage. But when the Edwards' two grown sons, Ben and Jeff, arrive at the beach house, Sydney finds herself caught up in a destructive web of old tensions and bitter divisions. As the brothers vie for her affections, the fragile existence Sydney has rebuilt is threatened. With the subtle wit, lyrical language, and brilliant insight into real emotion that has led her to be called 'a supremely elegant anatomist of the human heart' (The Times), Shreve weaves a story about risk, family, and the supreme courage that it takes to love.Hide synopsis

I generally like this author and bought it based on that alone. However, this story did not deliver. The writing was clipped and I found it hard to feel any connection to the characters or story. I don't read to get my happy on, but when I closed this book, I felt depressed, bored and wishing I ...
SINCE THIS IS A BOOK BY ANITA SHREVE IT IS VERY WELL WRITTEN. BUT I HAVE TO SAY THAT I DIDN'T SEE MUCH POINT TO THE STORY. I WASN'T PARTICULARLY ENGAGED WITH THE CHARACTERS EITHER. SHREVE HAS A WAY OF DRAWING YOU INTO HER STORIES EVEN IF THEY AREN'T UP TO HER USUAL STANDARDS,BUT I CAN'T SAY THAT I ...
