Haven Point by Virginia Hume

Haven Point has a beautiful view of the ocean and the families that live there have been there a long time.  When visitors come, they are ignored, treated with suspicion, but not really welcomed. 

St. Martin's press sent me an ARC of the book to read for review.  It will be published June 8th.

This story concentrates on one or two families and follows them through life.  You watch the children grow up to be adults.  These families are a bit dysfunctional.  Happiness is sprinkled here and there, and grudges are not forgotten.  There are tragedies that no one can forget.  

It begins in 1944, goes to 1970, and ends in 2008.  You learn about their personalities, their desires, and about death.  

This is not a happy book, but it mimics real life.  As you read you may see resemblances between someone you know and the characters.  If you enjoy reading about family life, you will enjoy this book.
