My Review of The View From Alameda Island by Robyn Carr

The View from Alameda IslandThe View from Alameda Island by Robyn Carr

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


It's been a longtime since I have read a book by Robyn Carr and I am happy to announce that I was given the opportunity to do so by reading her newest book The View From Alameda Island coming out in April. Carr shows us her passion for writing in her books, and she did not disappoint in this one either.

From the outside looking in, Lauren Delaney has a life to envy, a successful career, a solid marriage to a prominent surgeon and two beautiful daughters who are off to good colleges. But she knew the day she married Brad that it was a mistake.

They say "opposites" attract, and it is true in Carr's writing of the turbulent marriages that Lauren and Beau share in common. Lauren has planned her escape from her abusive husband of twenty four years very methodically. How much more of the abuse could she take?

Ms. Carr takes us right there on the island with some beautiful characters, and some very ugly ones. And tells the story of how two beautiful people cross paths at a very turbulent time in their lives, and fall in love. But their stories are not all champagne and roses, their stories touch on mental and emotional abuse as well as physical abuse. A touching story of how two families overcome the hardships and scars that their ex's leave in their lives, as well as their kid's lives.

I enjoyed this book very much. I could see the island and the homey town, she describes. Oh and how the flower gardens must have looked, Carr makes them sound so amazing. There are going to be a lot of people that will be able to relate to their stories, as I did myself.

Thank you to NetGalley, and the publisher for the ARC of Robyn Carr's book
