Helpful Score: 2

Not my favorite Anne Rivers Siddons, probably because it's set in Maine, not South Carolina. But, as usual, her descriptive passages are lovely-she has a way of talking about the light in particular and nature in general that I always enjoy. This novel spends a great deal of time on the "growing-up" of the main characters, instead of using the events of their adult lives to move the dramatic action along and I guess I missed the adult dialogue that is usually the focus of her stories. It was a good read and I'd recommend it for any ARS fan, but I'm going back to re-read some of the SC books and maybe a Pat Conroy or two!
