    1. You know a book is bad when, in the middle of reading, you shout out, "This character is so fuckin' dumb!" Seriously, I don't know when I've ever read more one-dimensional characters as the two who make up what little action there is in this groaner. The main character, Caroline, is a widow who falls into bed one evening with her husband's former partner, who is married. Dumb move #1: she sleeps with a married man. Dumb move #2: she doesn't use protection and gets knocked up. Dumb move #3: she h [...]


    2. Katharine Davis, in East Hope, pens an extraordinary page turning read with descriptive characters, intrinsic scene details and transports the reader, to a locale that invites conversation. This book is a must read, fiction and non fiction lover's - it's exceptional.The two primary characters, Caroline and Will invoke emotion for the reader and their story lines connect and weave a web with ebb and flow. As a Jodi Picoult fan, I found Davis' writing style refreshing, engaging and believable.



    3. A lovely, well written "quiet" story about marriages, crossroads, and the intricate details of everyday life. It opens in Chevy Chase, MD but quickly moves to Maine.


    4. I found this book to be a compelling read. Katharine Davis created a story line that showed the complexity of individual's situations. I liked especially how she portrays two people getting to know one another--how they come together, pull away from each other and come together. It's realistic and made me want to keep reading to see what would happen. I tip my hat to Ms. Davis!



    5. I should have given up on this book earlier than I did—like when I read the title. “East Hope” reeks of Maine and all that implies in modern literature. It implies lots of flowers and clear water and hardy folks surviving blizzards and homey comforts that outweigh more weighty concerns. But Davis, in this novel, goes beyond the clichés of Maine to not only include them but to have her characters live isolated lives beyond the physical. Her main male protagonist, Will, is a well-educated E [...]


    6. Love the cover art by Tom Curry (abit Hopperesque)! This novel of widowhood takes us to Maine, a place I have a fictional weakness for Besides the widow/cookbook writer, Caroline, the other main character is Will, a college professor wrongly dismissed on a false sexual harrassment charge. He retreats to Maine to manage a small used bookstore (what book nut hasn't had that fantasy?). We have the sense that these two characters will get together, and yes, of course they do -- but will their friend [...]


    7. The topics presented were believable the struggles Caroline faced could have been faced by any number of people. But the book was a slow read - took me a bit of time to get into it. The narrator changes from Will to Caroline, and while that wasn't terribly difficult to follow, I would have liked the book that focused more on her thought processes, and how she dealt with the hand life dealt.


    8. I enjoyed this novel set in Maine about a woman who stars a new life after her husband dies at a relatively young age. Nice descriptions of the setting, the charectors felt all to real.Several months after her husband’s sudden death, and troubled by one night’s indiscretion, Caroline Waverly seeks refuge in the house she’s inherited in East Hope, Maine. There she finds the courage to face the consequences of her choice


    9. Loved the plot - love, loss, poor decisions, change, struggles, finding happiness. But, I HATED the ending of this book. It just left you hanging with sooooo many questions. Leaves room for a sequel, I guess!


    10. My star review changed as I read the novel. Although I thought it meandered a bit, the writing is spare and quite good. I thought the 'bones' were good, just wished for more depth in the characters. Overall, I liked it. 3.5/5 stars


    11. Loved this book; didn't always go along with the main character's choices, but like how it all tied itself up in the end. Loved the descriptive narratives about the Maine environment and loving an old house back to its deserving state.


    12. Such a "blah" book, I just couldn't do it. :( I really wanted a light read after the Hunger Games, and this was not it. I could not get through more than a page or two without finding myself distracted by other things.


    13. Very good Maine read. Paints a good picture of a small coast town in Maine to which two people have fled to escape various stresses in their respective, otherwise urban, lives (New York and Washington, D.C.) Romance ensues. Simple but interesting read.


    14. I enjoyed the book however I was often annoyed with Caroline, the main character. She was selfish on more than one occasion and the way she treated the baby's father was just plain wrong. The book ended quite abruptly.







    15. I enjoyed the book, but the ending was very disappointing. It was like the author got tired of writing and just ended the book. Too many questions left unanswered.



    16. Another excellent book by Katharine Davis. I discovered her last summer at the Books in Bloom festival in Boothbay, Maine. Lovely Lady. Lovely book.


    17. Best lines:Once upon a time there lived a woman with a not-so perfect life.Caroline, sometimes angry, sometimes worried, said nothing. It was easier to maintain the harmony than seek the truth.


    18. A touching story about a woman trying to recover from the death of her husband and a man trying to recover from the death of his marriage.


    19. Not a quick read but has some interesting parts. Don't really understand the motivations of the main characters and that is no so clearly explored.
