    ePUB Sea Glass Kindle Ì Ï nessville.me glass kindle, Sea Glass EpubI almost passed on this book when I found it at a thrift store The book's plot looked promising and I wasn't disappointed My favorite uaote from the bookThe only problem with looking for sea glass Sexton says one day when he and Honora are walking along the beach is that you never look up You never see the view You never see the houses or the ocean because you're afraid you'll miss something in the sand

    ePUB Sea Glass Kindle Ì Ï nessville.me glass kindle, Sea Glass EpubWhat I liked The setting Shreve does a great job evoking the atmosphere of the New England coastmill town in the Depression era I liked learning about the mill strikes plight of the workers those who led the strikes I would have liked a lot detail about that I liked the interesting rhythm that Shreve has created with the story a rhythm that echoes the sea itself the story sort of surges forward then backs off surges backs off This was a little weird at first but then I got into it I liked some of the characters but not all My main difficulty with the book is that I feel it's a little superficial I wanted to go deeper into Honora McDermott some of the others Other characters like Sexton didn't interest me at all so I couldn't figure out why Honora marri

    ePUB Sea Glass Kindle Ì Ï nessville.me glass kindle, Sea Glass EpubNo no no Though there were touching moments in this book that I enjoyed I felt like the plot was SO boring for such an important issue I really had a hard time finishing this book which is extremely rare until it started picking up a little bit at the end I always love the way Anita Shreve writes about character interaction Using her words I can always picture exactly the way a person is moving smiling speaking and how they are feeling Maybe that's why I'm so addicted to her despite the fact that half of her books are disappointingOh well

    ePUB Sea Glass Kindle Ì Ï nessville.me glass kindle, Sea Glass EpubI didn't expect terribly much from this book but I felt the need to read it because well someone gave me a copy and it's party about the labor movement during the Depression in a textile mill town So I had no choiceI wish it were a better book It's nice summer reading if you're not part of the I only read happy books crowd It's not a happy book But it never reaches tragedy because well Shreve just can't get it there She relies too much on archetypes to develop true characters for us to react to Sigh I really wanted it to be a better book Though it is certainly a nice read

    ePUB Sea Glass Kindle Ì Ï nessville.me glass kindle, Sea Glass EpubThis book is the reason that whenever I walk on the beach I am walking stooped along the shore searching for little bits of beach glass in the sand So far I have collected two bowlfuls I don't have a big white platter like Honora does in this book but a bowl full of beach glass is very satisfying to run your hands through don't worry it is so dulled by the sand and the waves that it's smooth and curved not sharp any And although so far I've mostly found green white and brown little Gabr
