THE SUMMER EVERYTHING CHANGED
Chamberlin does a great job of portraying the local and summer residents of her beach town setting of Ogunquit, Maine. Her characters are interesting and sympathetic, but the pace of the novel is a bit slow. Also, the author’s personal voice breaks through the narrative when she explores the topic of domestic abuse. When her main character notices a couple that she suspects are an abuser and victim while crossing the street, the internal conversation goes on too long.
