This book meets my foremost criteria for a great book – I was very sorry when it ended.

My favorite Jane Green book is The Beach House. I love the main character, feisty widow Nan from Nantucket. I’m sure I like her because she’s sixty-five with a reputation for being eccentric. She cuts flowers from her neighbor’s yard when they’re away.
