review 1: Thoroughly enjoyed this book that follows the story of Allard and Ed, brothers growing up in New Hampshire, and their dear friend and neighbor, Sarah. The boys save the new girl, Sarah, when she fell through the ice, and their lives are intertwined ever since. It sounds corny, but it's not. I found it so poignant and beautiful as the kids grow up, find their way, and encounter tragic loss as well as profound love. highly recommend.
review 2: I'd like to give this book 3 1/2 stars. I like it a lot, but I didn't love it. It's a quiet kind of book, a nice summer read. I am not the type of person that puts myself in high-risk situations so it's interesting to read about people who do that. My favorite quote was on page 274, "Allard, your fatal flaw is you
... morenever understood that life is messy. It just is. It's a bunch of pucker bush, not an English garden." less

Sent to me by my 94-year-old grandmother and we both loved it. Beautiful.
Slow start good middle and end. But I'm not reveling anything else!
Pretty slow read.
