This is the first book I've read by this author, but I don't think it will be my last.

This story begins in 1965 when Anton, and 18 year old boy, receives a telescope from his parents as a Christmas present right before they leave for 2 weeks. One night, he witnesses a domestic violence incident and it bothers much so that he finds the apartment and goes there the next day to see if she is ok. Eventually, they strike up a friendship and spend a lot of time together during the 2 weeks his parents are gone. They don't see each other again for almost 20 years and a chance encounter puts them in the same place at the same time.

This is a story about finding love, losing it and finding it again.

Received this book from NetGalley.

Once again, no surpirse....Hyde has written all the way around a topic, covering in detail every aspect of the issue, from at least three points of view that are closely connected but then we also have what happens to the other people , in widening circles, who are also affected by the situations these three woman experienced. Norma is a gem of a character and as usual, I picture Catherine Ryan Hyde right inside her, directing everythinig that happens....she IS Norma, in a sense..Where does Hyde's own remarkable ability to write, always, about how we WISH the world would work, with common sense and just letting people live their lives without the burdens of cruelty and just plain meanness. There is comfort, always, in reading a Catherinie Ryan Hyde book.… (mer)

A Different Kind of Gone by Catherine Ryan Hyde

Thought provoking look at the way life can change by making one choice versus another.

What I liked:
* Norma: bar tender, divorced, mother of two sons, volunteers for search and rescue, has a horse and two hounds, gruff, quiet, a bit of a loner, wise, cares more than she seems to, has secrets, in her fifties when the story begins
* Betty: tends bar with Norma, outgoing, warm hearted, open, the opposite of Norma, good friend, similar in age to Norma
* Jill and Wanda: both suffered abuse at the hands of the same man, managed to escape, benefited from knowing Norma, and matured quite a bit in the book
* Norma’s backstory that comes out and helps explain why she makes the choices she does related to Jill and Wanda
* The search and rescue component of the story, Norma’s horse Fred and her hounds Lonny and Gracie, and the close bond between animals and human that are seen throughout the book
* The way abuse was handled, how it impacted more than one character in the story, its ripple effect, and the mention of why some who go missing get more airtime than others
* The plot, pacing, setting, and writing
* That it made me think, feel, and care about the outcome
* Reading a new to me author I will read again
* All of it really except…

What I didn’t like:
* Who and what I was meant not to like
* Thinking about abuse and the impact it has

Did I like this book? Yes
Would I read more by this author? Definitely

Thank you to NetGalley and Lake union Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review.

A story of a 14 yr old boy who finds himself ?responsible? for the lives of his best friend, his brother and Zoe. Each has attempted suicide, contemplated suicide or is overcoming addiction. He learns how to help in a way that does not bring him down, but is not smothering to those he feels responsible for.Kirkus: In the summer of 1969, 14-year-old Lucas Painter takes up running in the woods behind his house and ends up saving three lives, one of them his own.It all begins when two enormous dogs start chasing him one afternoon, and Lucas is delighted to discover that Rembrandt and Vermeer, two Weimaraner?Great Dane mixes, are out to play rather than attack. Running with them is a great way to escape the tension in his own home, where his parents do nothing but argue while his big brother, Roy, has been drafted to fight in Vietnam. But one morning the dogs won?t budge from the porch, and Lucas discovers that their owner, the mysterious Zoe Dinsmore, has tried to take her own life. By fetching help, Lucas saves Zoe?s life, and in the months that follow, Zoe saves Lucas? life, too. Ostracized by the town for an accident years earlier, Zoe keeps to herself. But as Lucas shows up every day, the two slowly forge a profound friendship. Meanwhile, Lucas? best friend, Connor, is struggling with his own demons. Rather than helplessly watch Connor slip deeper into depression, Lucas introduces him to Zoe, whose ability to listen without judgment becomes a lifeline. So when Roy returns, wounded and troubled, it?s only natural that Lucas and Zoe find a way to help him, too. A master of tales shaped for the human heart, Hyde (Have You Seen Luis Velez?, 2019, etc.) deftly balances tears against courage, avoiding trite sentimentality. Lucas and Connor both come from troubled homes, but the troubles ring true, never gratuitously abusive; and Hyde never plays Zoe?s and Roy?s tribulations for melodramatic effect.A compelling tale of damage and the healing powers of acceptance.… (mer)
