Book: Sea Glass by Anita Shreve
Genre: Literary Fiction
For: Both the TBR Challenge and the Something About Me Challenge
I'm finally catching up on some Anita Shreve books! The first one, A Pilot's Wife, I liked so-so, but this one, I really liked. I cared about the characters, and loved how all their lives came together, and apart, at the end.
This story takes place just as the stock market crashes in 1929 and how all the different characters deal with this tradgedy and how their lives are affected. It also centers around the mill workers strike and how that fires them up and gives them something to live for, yet also makes a complete mess of their lives.
Anyway, it is a sad story, but still, I enjoyed it and I think that if I lived by a beach, I could really get into collecting sea glass!
I've got a couple more Anita Shreve books on my shelves waiting for me, and soon, I'll be getting to them!
