I didn't want to put this book down. I found myself transported to the water's edge. The characters are unique and colorful, each of them adding a different layer to the story. The book changes perspectives between Mags and Sara which makes it a full story of both women and how their lives intertwine. The book give a thorough look at the intersection of grandparents and grandchildren. If you're looking for a sweet, engaging read for late summer, pick this one up soon.
