 Body Surfing: A Novel

Read Body Surfing: A Novel ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Anita Shreve ï 5 Read Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ï Anita Shreve At the age of 29 Sydney has already been once divorced and once widowed Trying to regain her footing once again she has answered an ad to tutor the teenage daughter of a well to do couple as they spend a sultry summer in their oceanfront New Hampshire cottage. First I think the novel is suited to a person who is probably under the age of 50 It s a series of conflicts that result in love affairs some with people and some with placesIt s a difficult story to get into because it is so conflicted If you are a mature reader however it is easy to eventually guess what is going on and the inevitable outcomeI was chagrined to find an author that I ordinarily like getting sucked into the need to include a same sex love affair of a teen Was this to attract readers than likely I guess this was like putting a cuss word in a Disney film so that the rating is one for a wider audience It was crazy to think a retarded or slow girl of 18 would be allowed by her parents to go to another country for such an affairNot one of the author s best stories

Read Body Surfing: A Novel ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Anita Shreve ï 5 Read Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ï Anita Shreve S threatened With the subtle wit lyrical language and brilliant insight into the human heart that has led her to be called an author at one with her métier Miami Herald Shreve weaves a novel about marriage family and the supreme courage that it takes to love. A rather poignant and beautifully written novel about love mistakes and self knowledge Twenty nine year old Sydney Sklar a woman despite the unusual name has been once divorced and once tragically widowed To help heal herself after her unexpected bereavement she takes a summer job tutoring the daughter of a wealthy couple at their summer house in New Hampshire A few weeks into her visit her pupil Julie s two elder brothers come for a weekend vacation They persuade Sydney into a late night body surfing dip in the ocean during which one of them touches her up Jumping to a conclusion about which brother it was Sydney tries to avoid him and begins to find herself drawn to the other brother an academic despite the fact he already has a serious girlfriend Victoria When Julie mysteriously disappears running away with a woman lover Sydney finds herself drawing closer to the enigmatic academic and during the course of tracing Julie they begin to fall in love It s not long before the academic who has ended his relationship with Victoria has proposed to Sydney and all looks set for her to be married for the third time when she receives a devastating shockI initially found this book a little hard to get into but uickly warmed to it largely due to Shreve s beautiful and poetic writing style Her evocations of the coast of New Hampshire in summer of the Edwards s elegant house and of Julie s discovery of her gift as an artist are exuisite The plot is a good one on the whole with a tempting element of mystery in it which keeps you turning the pages and some fascinating material about sibling relationships I thought the final section in which Sydney gradually came to terms with what had happened to her particularly well written and also much enjoyed the sections dealing with Julie and with her lover Helene the person who sets Julie free from her dominating family If I stop short of five stars it s because I wasn t uite convinced by Sydney s love affair particularly that after being widowed she could fall in love again so fast and because I found that the brothers remained slightly too mysterious Still a very interesting and involving read

    ( Body Surfing: A Novel) [PDF NEW] ✓ Anita Shreve This was an okay beach read.
