Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The thunder of the waves, the screams of seagulls, and the smell of torn kelp suffuse this quiet, introspective story of a young woman’s return to her childhood home on an island off the west coast of Canada. The sea in all its moods makes a turbulent background for a story of four people closely tied together by their idyllic but claustrophobic life alone on Lizzie Island, and by the tangled strands of resentment, guilt, and love that bind them…a contemplative story only gradually revealed.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“Lawrence charts the course of the human heart, with cascading emotions of remorse and fury, love and passion, hope and nostalgia…With adult characters every bit as memorable as the teen characters, plus its stunning ability to create a sense of the island’s rhythms and habitat, Lawrence’s novel not only lives up to the high standards of his previous works, but may well attract a wide adult readership.” Publishers Weekly
