Body Surfing by Anita Shreve

At 29, Sydney has already had a rough time with her relationships. Her first marriage ended in divorce, and her second marriage left her a widow. Sydney tries to escape the sorrow of her life by taking a job as a tutor for a family over the summer at their beach house. A new relationship and the sense of family she never had finally brings her some peace.

I really enjoyed this book. I hadn't been thrilled with anything I'd read lately, and finally, I found one I really like. The characters are very real and the emotions are vivid. 4 1/2 stars
