I usually love Anita Shreve, but found this one disappointing. I found the characters, especially Sheila to be shallow.
very disappointing book C-
I've read Anita's other works - Pilot's Wife, Fortunes Rock and Sea Glass - and I don't believe Rescue has as much depth or interest. To me, it seems that this book was written to fill a quota and would make a better screen play.
A rookie paramedic rescues a young woman; falls for her; and marries her. They have a daughter.
Soon after the marriage falls apart.
After 18 years, they meet under unusual circumstances in a hospital where their daughter lay in ICU.
Heart-tugging and an occasional tear-jerker read!
Not as deep as the bookjacket review would like you to believe. But a very easy and very entertaining read. It goes quickly. Somewhat predictable, but I enjoyed it anyway.
I always like Anita Shreve, but wasn't crazy about the subject matter of this book when I started. She seemed too crazy, he seemed too straight. But as the story went on I liked it a lot - and could see the daughter as a solid blend of both. Worth the read, but not as absorbing as a Jodi Picoult book or anything.
Couldn't finish. Very superficial writing. No depth.
Good vintage Anita Shreve
