If you’re looking for a book with high dramatic moments, this book isn’t it. But, if you’re looking for a sweet, easy read, a story that makes you feel good by the time you reach the end, then this book fits that demand easily. Kiyono’s writing is flawless, the characters real, the world plausible even if a bit sad in the beginning as everyone is struggling as a result of the 1929 stock market crash. It’s a book about beating back the negativity that has occurred as life once lived is no longer available and finding that life is worth living in a small seashore community where everyone is struggling to regain their footing. It’s a sweet book worth reading.
