9780061727641: The Beach House

The beach house is a peaceful haven, a place to escape everyday problems. Here, three families find their feelings intensified and their lives transformed each summer.

When thirty-year-old Julia, mourning the death of her husband, decides to sell the Santa Cruz beach house they owned together, she sets in motion a final summer that will change the lives of all the families who rent it year after year. Teenaged Chris discovers the bittersweet joy of first love. Maggie and Joe, married sixty-five years, courageously face a separation that even their devotion cannot prevent. The married woman Peter yearns for suddenly comes within his reach. And Julia ultimately finds the strength to rebuild her life—something she once thought impossible.

With equal measures of heartbreak and happiness, bestselling author Georgia Bockoven's unforgettable novel tells of the beauty of life and the power of love, and speaks to every woman who has ever clung to a child or loved a man.

Review:

Julia Huntington is still reeling from her husband Ken's death when she makes the decision that she will sell their summer house on the beach in Santa Cruz after one last season. Three different families have rented the house each summer. Their stories--and Julia's--are the tales that author Georgia Bockoven so beautifully relates in The Beach House. In an original concept, the book is separated into sections delineating the summer months, prefaced and followed by Julia's own story. Readers will be thoroughly enchanted by these love stories--from teenager Chris to Maggie and Joe, married 65 years and coping with Maggie's terminal illness. In the tradition of such great storytellers as Barbara Delinsky, Iris Rainer Dart, and Kathleen Gilles Seidel, Bockoven has penned a novel of such power that readers will be moved to tears. Georgia Bockoven is an author definitely on the brink of superstardom and The Beach House showcases her talents superbly. --Maudeen Wachsmith
