Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two daughters, and weathered the storms of youth as they built a future together. But after the children leave home, they quietly drift apart. When Jack accepts a wonderful new job offer, Elizabeth puts her needs aside to follow him across the country. Until the sudden death of her father changes everything. Grieving and alone, she retreats to an isolated beach house where she packs away the last remnants of her parents' lives. There, the pieces of a past she never knew unfold to reveal a tender story of lasting devotion, the kind of steadfast commitment that Elizabeth admits is missing from her own marriage. Faced with her own disillusionment, she makes a terrifying decision, risking everything she has for a second chance at happiness.

Kristen Hannah is a great writer, but this book didn't catch me up as much as most of her others. I do love the Oregon coast setting.

This was my first Kristin Hannah book and I really enjoyed it. The plot was interesting and an easy read. It flowed well and defnitely a good summer read.

Not my favourite of Kristin Hannah's books. I gave it 3 stars as the characters were realistic and the flow of the story was good but I just found the book to be a bit boring. If you are a fan of Kristin Hannah's books then it's still worth the read. Winter Garden is still my favourite.
