Return to the Beach House

Return to the Beach House: A Beach House Novel

About The Book(from the back cover):  Over the course of one year, in a charming cottage by the sea, eight people will discover love and remembrance, reconciliation and reunion, beginnings and endings in this unforgettable sequel to Georgia Bockoven's The Beach House and Another Summer.  Alison arrives at the beach house in June to spend a month with her restless grandson before he leaves for his first year of college.  More than a decade earlier, Alison lost her beloved husband, and has faced life alone ever since.  Now she discovers a new life and possible new. love.  August brings together four college friends facing a milestone.  During the summer's final days, they share laughter, tears, and love - revealing long-held secrets and creating new and even more powerful bonds.  World-class wildlife photographer Matthew and award-winning war photographer Lindsey arrive at the beach house in January, each harboring the very real fear that it will mark the end of their decade-long love affair.  Alone in the house's warm peach, they are forced to truly look at who they are and what they want, discovering surprising truths that will change their lives forever.

My Thoughts On The Book:  I took this book to the beach with me last week because of the title. I thought it would be a good beach read that would last several days.  A little sunburn and a good restful day later the book was completed.  I could not put it down.  I even found myself searching for a Bach house where I was.  I imagined the houses we past as the house in the book.  It was a really good read for those who love stories in a beach setting. If you are a regular beach goer you can definitely relate to the power of the setting and the unfolding of the  characters lives as they gather at the Beach House to share their life situations. Each story has same themes threaded through them.   Any beach goer can see themselves at the Brach House.  I would love to find myself there too.
