This novel shows the softer side of David Baldacci. This is no blood and thunder thriller but he faces full on the question of personal loss, personal relationships and the family relationships following that loss. There is sentiment that can reduce the toughest of males to a weeping wreck but there is redemption to that emotion in the solutions to the problems of life and death.
This sounds very cryptic but to say more would be to give too much away - you'll just have to read it to understand!

I wondered at first if the basic situation was credible... and, yes, it is. Well-drawn characters, from the man who has to rebuiid his own life, and that of his family, to the teenage daughter, so troubled and confused by her mother's death, the grand-mother's interference, and the apparently strange behaviour of her father.

This is a departure from David Baldacci's normal style and content. However it demonstrates that he is capable of producing a fine and gentle storyline combining pathos,family trials and tribulations and an underlying love story that tugs at the heart strings.It is a book that is uplifting and hard to put down.It draws the reader into a fantasy world with such skill that you almost feel a part of it.One can almost smell the sea and the images of the stunning coast line in which it is set. More of the same please David although don't neglect Sean King and Michelle Maxwell and of course the Camel Club.

Read as an e-book without reading any info about the book so was surprised when the subject matter was so different from DB novels read previously
But somethings did not change - quality etc. and 'uputtable downness'
Excellent

Not the usual Baldacci agent approach. A family in turmoil over the impending loss of a loved one. How the story twists and turns. How love is stretched to breaking point. The family in crisis is dragged into greater crisis. Baldacci keeps the plot twisting to the end
A good read

A great way to spend 8 hours, unlike any other Baldacci story. The story has Love, Pain, Bitterness, No Hope, Eternal Hope, True Friendship and even more New loves, a gripping story throughout that is hard to put down. It WILL put at your heart strings.

Beautifully written story, although very poignant at times.

Not my sort of book, but I persisted despite the predictability and the shallow characters. If you like escapism, happy-happy endings and a read that doesn't tax the brain too much this could be the book for you.
