In three words I deem this book: soulful, selfish, and amoral.
This book is about a women's coming-of-age. Usually we read about young adults, even small children doing that, yet this one is about a 40 year old who is having a mid-life crisis basically. As you can tell, I wasn't a huge fan. Though the book was intriguing (I kept wondering what choices she'd make), but ultimately I was disappointed in her choices and amoral attitude. But I did like the setting of book, on South Carolina's coast. Reading the imagery was beautiful.
Apparently this book was turned into a movie (just found this out as I was looking for a picture of the book cover). Kim Bessinger plays the women. Interesting. However, don't think I'll be renting that one.
1.5 out of 5 stars
