    Honora and Sexton are just settling into their new marriage, and have just bought their beloved New Hampshire house, when the economy crashes and everything in their world changes. Anita Shreve presents a "literary novel of the caliber and craft of Edith Wharton or Henry James," says the Baltimore Sun.

    Deneen says: "A pleasant surprise!"
    "Fun read"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Sea Glass the most enjoyable?

    The book has an interesting plot which weaved together the history of the time period (beginning of the Great Depression) with a believable group of characters. The issues presented in the story provided a good selection of topics for our Book Club's discussion including union vs. management in the mills of the northeast, effects of the Great Depression, ethics in marriage, etc.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Honora Beecher - she was a nice combination of hard working, kind and strong.


    What does Judith Ann Gantly bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her presentation was pleasant and confident which enhanced the experience as it seemed similar to the main character Honora Beecher


    If you could take any character from Sea Glass out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Honora - I would want to tell her that not giving in to her desires was not a mistake, but another example of her honorable character demonstrated throughout the story.
