The sea...a story5/11/2012
Heather Barbieri writes a tale that is both familiar and modern and also a fantasy. Nora is the mother of 2 young girls, Ella -12 and Annie- 6. She also is the wife of a philandering state attorney general and returns to her original island home after being harassed by the press. She reunites with her aunt and here the tale begins its mystery. What happened to Nora's mother and what will happen with Nora's life? One daughter is filled with anger and the other is becoming quietly aware of the mysteries of the island. The writing draws a reader into Nora's life and the people of the island, her aunt and the mysterious fisherman washed up on their beach. My one advice for anyone reading a story, would be, that to enjoy it to the fullest, one should have at least some familiarity with the background of the surroundings or the people. The main characters are well described in this book and we feel we know them, but one part is missing.
