Sea Glass and the Pilot’s Wife are two of my favorite books by Anita Shreve.
I nearly married a pilot and have always wondered what life would have been like. Whether or not you have ever been betrayed, this 1998, yet timeless novel, will absorb you. No wonder Oprah chose this one for her Book Club.
From the minute Kathryn, the pilot’s wife, opens her door to the unthinkable, we begin to ponder the question. How well do we really know another person?Another hard to put down story is a gripping tale of a young couple beginning their life in an old beach house. Like Honora, I have roamed the windy Atlantic seacoast collecting smooth chips of sea glass.
A perfect beach read, Shreve’s characters are as lovely and dramatic as the watercolor shades of the sea glass she saves. The author has a gift of absorbing the reader in every story.
