Fleeing an East Coast life marred by tragedy, Ada Santorini takes up residence on houseboat number seven on Boat Street. She discovers a trunk left behind by Penny Wentworth, a young newlywed who lived on the boat half a century earlier. Ada longs to know her predecessor’s fate, but little suspects that Penny’s mysterious past and her own clouded future are destined to converge.
I love Sarah Jios style. I like how it’s read from 2 different women’s perspectives and how their lives are tied together. When I read a book and think to myself “I would watch this movie” or “this needs to be made into a movie” that’s how I know it’s good. I would watch this movie! It’s uplifting in the sense that it gives hope. No matter what happens in life there is always something there that’ll bring you a little bit of happiness during the dark time. That was this book.
