The book deals with Terry who from an early age realizes that he is different from the very rich and famous "summer" people who visit Rose Point. Terry's father is the caretaker cum odd job man and never forgets his place. He works almost as an invisible man and attends to everything that needs to be done.
Fast forward to Terry's success in California and with the death of his father Terry returns to just finalize things in Rose Point and return as swiftly as he can to his life of quick deals and fast money.
The story has a Christmas feel and is also touted as a Christmas read because we see Terry changing from a hard boiled man about town to a feeling, caring person very quickly. This of course is due to his meeting up with Katherine and her daughter Olivia who teach him values which have nothing to do with money.
This book was not a light read but it was certainly an interesting one. 304 pages and in a font which could have been better. I am beginning to realize how important an easily readable book is!

I know what you mean about the font..the book I am reading now has smaller print than the last book I read. It's hard on the eyes.ReplyDelete
I saw the movie that is based on the book and enjoyed it. I will have to pick up the book and read it too. Great review.
This sounds like a heartening story. Thanks for the review!ReplyDelete
