Format: Hardcover
I have read every single Luanne Rice book and have always been very pleased with them because she is the kind of author who writes books one can't put down. Unfortunately, The Silver Boat was not one of those books. It was very slow getting into it and written in third person; Luanne Rice usually writes in first person which brings more of a connection with the main character. By the time the story reached it's climax, it was more than half way through. I found the characters to be disconnected through the story and not very powerful. This is the only book where I had to force myself to pick up and read to see how it was going to end. I'm sorry to give Luanne Rice such a mediocre review because I have loved every one of her books, but this one does not compare with her other works.

Another Luanne Rice Winner! April 8 2011
By Barva - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Time after time, novel after novel, Luanne Rice proves that she knows how to write about families in all shapes and sizes. Her newest is no exception. The McCarthy sisters and their families and their stories spring to life in The Silver Boat. One warning - the book is addictive and once I started it, I had trouble stopping.
I highly recommend this book as a great read. Enjoy! I sure did.

Choppy and amateurish Nov. 3 2011
By Lady O - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I picked this up on a whim as it was prominently displayed. Read the reviews and the dust jacket, and it seemed perfect for me. Wrong. The author spent a great deal of ink telling us what the characters were all about without letting the characters develop on their own. The side story with the "graphic novel" was boring and disruptive. I felt as though I were reading the bare bones of a "Hallmark Hall of Fame" film script. Very dissatisfying.

entertaining family drama April 16 2011
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Each of the sisters looks back at the family beach house on Martha's Vineyard with fond memories. They can track their roots to the Massachusetts colony as their ancestors were one of the first families to settle here. However, with mom's death and the trio living far away and unable to keep the place as a vacation site, they know they must sell.

Thus the McCarthy siblings (Dar, Delia and Rory) come to Daggett's Way with sadness. Adding to the despondency is the only offer comes from insufferable boors who plan to tear Dagget's Way down and replace it with a despicable reproduction of a French chateau. Dar the manga graphic novelist wishes she had the power of her comic book heroine. Delia has other issues as she struggles with her son's meth addiction that is also killing her relationship with her husband; reminding her of her Irish father Michael who vanished at sea years ago while insisting King Charles I gave his ancestors land within the Daggett acres.

This is an entertaining family drama as readers see the sadness of the three sisters who must give up their long time family heritage. The story line is insightful when the tale remains anchored on Martha's Vineyard profoundly studying the impact of the loss of something sacred (not just the sisters as another character has confronted the same loss). When the siblings chase after an inane dream that even if they succeed accomplishes nothing, the plot loses its plausibility though one could argue this is a coping defense mechanism. Overall readers will enjoy the McCarthy sisters learning you truly cannot go home no matter how much you wish otherwise.

disapointed April 14 2011
By lynn k - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have always been a fan of Luanne Rice but I must say I was just plain bored and disapointed by this new book.The author focused more on Dar's cartoon charactor than developing the actual charactors of the story.I am sad to say the story was also very predictable. No depth here.This book left me cold.

sparkles1 June 7 2011
By D. J. Karr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Disjointed writing. Characters were not fully developed. Read more like an outline of a story than a novel. Had potential for a good story but skirted the story for unrelated trivia that detracted. Was disappointed.
