Only a skillful storyteller could use 3 points of view and separate the tale by 2 decades. Yet the story was brought together so you had only one view. Since I don’t handle this arrangement very well, I had trouble reading it. It took me longer to read than usual. I felt is was predictable at times with a minor twist at the end.

Larkin has exiled herself to New York and she received a call that her Mother, Ivy was missing. At her arrival, she learns her Mother was found trap at Carrowmore and is in a coma at the local hospital. In 1950,  3 young friends Ceecee, Margaret and Bitty pledged to be friends forever. The travel to Myrtle Beach and two of them, Ceecee and Margaret meet brothers and fall in love with the brothers. The story is told from Larkin, Ceecee and Ivy points of view. It switches between 1950’s and 2010.  

 Larkin didn’t know when she turned 35 Carrowmore was held trust for her. What happened in the 1950’s to test the girl’s friendship and why was it keep a secret? I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book.

Disclosure: Many thanks to Berkeley for a review copy. The options expressed are my own.

    Fair and good review. I think the three points of view and the dual timeframe could be very confusing.
