Off Season - Audio CD - Abridged Author:Anne Rivers Siddons, Jane Alexander (Narrator) 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 remot... more »e 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.
I enjoyed this book to a point, but it is kind of weird and hard to follow especially toward the end. Siddons seems to turn a corner and is off in another direction. Even at the end I'm not sure exactly what happened.
Anne Rivers Siddons is one of my Favorite Authors. I love the way she writes in addition to the historical aspect of the Carolinas; plus the Eastern Seaboard. When I am reading and/or listening to her stories I feel like I'm transported and living the events of the time and location. Off Season is definitely a Keeper.
