I loved this story. It carries you through the full range of emotions, from joy to sadness, from happiness to anger. The characters are beautifully written. I can feel for every foible, fault and fear they have. I love most of them, and hate a few. There are a few surprises in the story and a segment where I needed tissues. I see that there is a second story coming, I look forward to a return visit to the Cove.
