This book is about a young girl named Sabine and her family. Sabine and her mother Kate disagree on everything, but especially on Kate's love life. So when Kate finds yet another man, Justin, she sends Sabine away to Ireland to live with her mother Joy and father Edward, whom she hasn't seen forever. Sabine arrives at Ireland as a mopey, self-absorbed 15 year old girl. She hates everything, her ancient grandfather, her strict grandmother and all of her rules, the rainy weather and no electronics. She mopes around everyday. But slowly when she realizes that her grandparents have interesting backgrounds and a heart-melting love story, she realizes there is more to Ireland than she thinks and she begins to have fun herself. But everything changes when her grandfather gets ill and her mother returns to patch up relationships. Kate arrives to nothing she expected. A whole fresh Sabine; confident, loving and no longer self-absorbed, her greedy brother who says she is just back for the cash and her mother who treats her the same as when she was 18. Everyone is not making the same effort as Kate e needs to stay and patch up her relationships with her family, but will she? My favorite parts of the book were the flashbacks of Joy and Edward's relationships, when everything was easy and not as complicated, it was just love. I would recommend this book to people to everyone, but especially to people who are into books with dramatic plots because this book definitely has some drama.
I found the story very uninspiring. I have always enjoyed JoJo Moyes' books but this didn't meet my expectations at all. It started well with a light historical background story set in Hong Kong to set the context, but the main teriorated very quickly. It is essentially based around a very weak premise of a 16 year old London girl called Sabine who is sent by her man-mad scatty single mum to stay with her unknown Anglo-Irish grandparents in their crumbling estate, which is a bizarre and completely fictitious "colonial" representation of Ireland. The family of former British colony expatriates are portrayed as equestrian-loving, figureheads of the rural Irish community populated by Irish bumpkins glad to work for them and a random selection of hunting and horsey folk. It was just badly researched and totally implausible. It didnt feel remotely Irish. Twice during the story, characters mention that the currency is pounds despite the story being set in modern day Ireland! The characters failed to establish any authenticity or sense of connection to each other or any empathy with the reader. The modern day plot of the 16 year old girl who falls for a man in his mid thirties, who actually turns out to be in love with her mother was downright uncomfortable to read. This book was a disappointment from begin to finish.
This three-generational story has some interesting twists and turns, but takes a very long time getting started. At first, the reader becomes involved in the early backstory of tightly regimented grandmother Joy (ironic name choice?) and her life in the British enclave of Hong Kong after the war. We follow her unconventional courtship with naval officer Edward Ballantyne and their life-long fascination with horses. Then we jump to show day and sixteen-year-old granddaughter Sabine who is sent unceremoniously to live with her almost unknown grandparents on their now somewhat decrepit estate in Ireland. Through Sabine's typical teenage angst and whininess, we also learn about her own mother Kate and Kate's unfortunate choices in men. Then the story wanders and lingers too long on the woe-is-me Sabine, until she and her grandmother eventually create a connection over an old box of photographs. The plot finally starts to pick up some steam as grandfather Edward becomes more gravely ill and mother Kate re-enters the story, reluctantly returning to her Irish home and her unhappy family relationships. The three generations of women survive some difficult happenings and eventually start to search some common ground and develop some level of understanding of each other by the is was an okay read, but not one of my favorites. Each of the main characters has a few strengths and a lot of weaknesses, but it takes more than 2/3's of the book for them even to start to figure things out. Toss in a more interesting side story about hired horseman Thom, and an oddly unsettling side story about neighbors Annie and Patrick, and you end up with a novel that is a bit of a hodge-podge rather than a tightly woven narrative.
Just finished Sheltering Rain, and although it was a small slow for me to obtain started, I was so sorry it ended! I wish to hold reading about his family! The ending was a small sad, but not method over the top. If you have read other Jojo Moyes books, you will not be disappointed.
I’ve mostly enjoyed the book so far. The only issue I have with it is the terminolog. The author has this child grow up to be a cop. And while he is working for the huge town PD he is an officer, No issue there. Then he switches to little city chief of police (still a PD) and all of a sudden has deputies working for him. No, wrong. Deputies work for the Sheriff’s office and police departments have the chief and offices whether in a huge city or little twon. They do not mix. It is a easy thing that authors and screen writers create now and again, but it does not add authenticity to the book. It’s sloppy ever for this book, the characters are good, the plot is amazing and the story timely.
I have never not wanted to finish a Nora Roberts book before beginning “Shelter in Place.” The entirety of the book was heavily politicized, emotionally skewed, and preachy, with romantic threads that felt forced until the very end. What happened to writing for the sake of the story, and not making sure to hit the notes that would garner the most publicity? So, for the first time, I search myself disappointed by a fresh release from what has been one of my favorite authors. Is this the end of the Roberts Era?
Wish to know what the plot to Nora Roberts next novel will be? Just turn on the news and wait for the most depraved and violent crime versus humanity and that will be the main plot. Earlier she wrote about kidnapping/torture/murder, and more recently a young woman who is held versus for years versus her will, repeatedly raped and beaten and forced to procreate. And now we have a mass shooting in a film theater. But wait, that's not enough mayhem. She then has the evil sister murdering everyone who "lived to tell the tale" which Ms. Roberts seems to gleefully describe (e.g. toaster in the swimming pool).Help me out here Nora Roberts fans. I've been reading her for over 20 years and this sudden turn to the gruesome is awful. Well, OK, not sudden as she set a dog on fire in one several years ago and repeatedly electrocuted a character in another. Is this what you fans really wish to read?
I have enjoyed her books for years. The latest few though have been disappointing. I had to force myself to finish this one. The subject is quite timely. The hero development seemed lackluster and not up to Nora standards. There were some little missing info and inaccuracies that were nevertheless key to moving the story along. The ending seemed rushed and anticlimatic given the happenings in the story. It was almost like a rushed ending to meet a deadline or cashing in on tie ins with current events. The CSI result on laypersons has,over the years, upped reader expectations as well as forced writers to continuously up their game. In this effort I feel that the author didn't bother and simply ground out a book touching on a timely subject that the author knew would sell simply because she is a recognized name. I have spent more on books in the past, but this is the very first time I have ever regretted spending this much on a Nora Roberts book. I will not create the mistake again. I'll simply wait for the used copies for $0.01 + shipping or wait to obtain a copy from the library because this one is not a keeper.
I received a preview of the first chapter of this book several months ago a n immediately place it on preorder even though the release date was further in advance than I usually buy. But, hey, Nora Roberts. This book has a related format as the Witness which I really liked, although I found the subplots in the witness much more entertaining. (I’ve never really found living in the mind of the assassin very compelling, although Roberts manages it with her usual flair.)There is no true mystery here as we know the assassin very early on. The suspense comes from catching the killer. Readers of the “In Death” series will very much have fun this one.
I keep Nora Roberts to extremely high standards. She is the one author that I buy without a second thought whenever she releases something r that reason, and while I enjoyed the story very much, I do not feel like I can give this story 5 stars. It glossed over a lot of the difficulty that the villain should have had. There was never any explanation as to why the villain was able to access cash all the time. The first thing that law enforcement would have done is to freeze bank ere was never any explanation about how the villain recovered from first being shot by the hero. Medical care would have been needed, and while I don't know, I suspect that gunshot wounds are reported to law enforcement in Canada as well as in the United ese logical holes detracted from my enjoyment of the ever, no one does characterization as well as Nora Roberts. CiCi was simply a unbelievable character, as was Barney.
Sometimes it seems the mass shooting that began this tale is event in reality every day now. It's crushing all of us in the U. S. This book helps me stare the horror in the face instead of looking away because I don't know what to do. It keeps the HEA but matures what that means for true people. We are taken over 13 years in the lives of survivors of an attack in a shopping mall in 2003. I'm sure Roberts did her usual research and got the info about mass shootings, assassin and victim psychology right. It's a attractive book. Thank you, Nora.
I always think that that Nora Roberts won't be able to top herself. I was proven wrong again. This is not only a book that deals with problems we unfortunately face today, it does so in a non-preachy way. Best book she's ever written if not one of the best books I've ever read by any modern author in the genre.
I finished this book in one day. I think it will touch most of the readers. I cried a small more than I usually do in a Nora book, but that’s to be expected given the basis of the story. I really enjoyed the characters and I know I will be rereading it soon to see what small info I missed.
I got this book on my kindle Tuesday and except when I had to leave (I have it on my phone too) a few times I didn't place this down. So glad I was in vacation because I would of called in sick..... I will read this again! Thank you Nora Roberts for another masterpiece!!!! You rock!!!!!
