As expected, Kristin Hannah's writing is beautiful.

The Shores, fallen football star Jack, and his college sweetheart, Elizabeth "Birdy" are struggling to keep their marriage together after twenty-four years. Jack, who once was the golden boy, has struggled for the past many years to climb back to the top by way of sports anchoring at mediocre television stations across the country. Birdy, who gave up everything about herself she loved, including painting to support Jack and his dreams, has finally found a house, a town, a life where she wants to grow roots, in Echo Bay, Oregon. Of course, Jack has now been offered the job of a lifetime, in New York. Now Birdy must figure out who she is, what she is, and what's important to her: should she follow Jack, again, or refind herself? And Jack is left to wonder, should he give up this once-in-a-lifetime chance so that Birdy, who never can seem to make a decision, might finally do something that makes her happy?

Anyone who has ever had any lasting relationship can relate to both Birdy and Jack. Relationships can easily grow stale with age. The love may still be there, but gone is the excitement, long are the made and broken promises. In all relationships there are crossroads and Distant Shores does its best to touch on some of these. But, unfortunately, touch is all that happens.

I love the way Kristin Hannah writes, so polished, so effortless, while I liked this book and could relate to it, I didn't necessarily love Distant Shores; there just wasn't much there to sink my teeth into. For me, the most clever part of the book was the title. ( )

She's a good writer. This one is definitely a beach kind of read. ( )

I missed this book when it first came out when I would have been the perfect age for it. But, my cousin loved it and "made" me read it! I'm not sorry that I did, it's a perfect book for the right age demographic, between 45 and 55 years old. It was a good end of summer read. ( )

My first book by this author.
Pretty predictable storyline, but much better writing and well developed characters, clearly make this author worth reading. ( )
