Working in higher ed means sacrificing some or all of May to the crazy. You haven’t seen crazy until you’ve seen end of the semester crazy. I joked recently that if you shouted “BOO” you could wipe out a whole division.
At such a time of year, it’s always wise to have a light fluffy book on hand for a bit of an escape when there’s a free moment. This little paperback, picked up for 50 cents in a thrift shop, filled the bill.
Two friends from childhood. Event pulls them apart. Much regret. Horrible thing happens. Thrown back together. More complicating factors. Throw in a few love stories. Happy beach memories and a little family dynamics.
This is far from a literary masterpiece, but as a beach read, it was quite good. It kept me occupied for a few days and let me forget about the tension at key moments.
