From Publishers Weekly

The sacred bond of sisterhood is explored in painstaking detail in Rice's newest offering (after Summer Light), a warm and weepy drama set in the picaresque seaside town of Black Hall, Conn. The novel sets sail slowly when a grief-stricken Dana Underhill returns home to care for her two nieces, Quinn and Allie, following the death of her sister, Lily, and Lily's husband, Mike, in a sailing accident. Dana, a professional painter, had intended to whisk her nieces back to France with her, but her plans are put on hold when she realizes that change may not be what's best for Quinn and Allie. Indeed, Quinn, a cigarette-smoking 12-year-old with a chip on her shoulder, is dead set against leaving, particularly since she's determined to uncover the circumstances surrounding her parents' deaths. The mystery of Mike and Lily's drowning and the state of their marriage before the accident weighs down the second half of the book, but the pace picks up when Dana's childhood acquaintance, oceanographer and Yale professor Sam Trevor, arrives to provide Dana with a shoulder to lean on and to help Quinn find the answers she seeks. While Quinn and Sam make plans to recover her parents' sailboat, Dana struggles to overcome her sister's death and to paint again. The affection between Dana and Sam is heartwarming and convincing, but the novel's finale involving the rescue of Quinn and Allie during a fierce storm with the aid of a little divine intervention is anticlimactic. Less a romance than a somber meditation on the importance of family ties, this saccharine read is buoyed by Rice's evocative prose and her ability to craft intelligent, three-dimensional characters.

From Booklist

All their lives sisters Dana and Lily loved living near the ocean until Lily and her husband die on a sailboat. Almost a year later, Dana returns home to Black Hollow, Connecticut, for an exhibit of her artwork and plans to take her nieces with her back to France. At the show, Dana meets someone who shares her past, Sam Trevor, once a lonely youngster she and her sister took under their wing. A professor at Yale, Sam never forgot the sisters, especially Dana, but he enters her life just as she is leaving. Her nieces don't want to go, and during a heart-wrenching scene at the airport, Dana has a change of heart and decides to pay more attention to the increasingly attractive Sam. This paean to sisterhood and the joy of sailing is an excellent escape from the doldrums of winter, and readers who enjoyed Firefly Beach [BKL My 1 01] will happily reunite with some old friends.

An Audio nominated voice performer as well as a novelist and blogger Tanya Eby pleases the ear with her reading of this mysterious tale of love lost and found again. Author Rice knows how to pluck heart strings and she strikes quite a few chords with Safe Harbor.

Dana Underhill is a successful artist who has traveled the world to capture on canvas the beauties of the seas that she and her sister have loved since childhood. Then this close to perfect existence is shattered when she is summoned home to Hubbard’s Point - her sister, Lily, and her husband, Mike, drowned while sailing at midnight across Long Island Sound. Dana is now to take on the role of mother to her two young nieces, a role with which she is not familiar.

Dana wants to take the girls back to France with her but almost 13-year-old Quinn refuses to go - she will not leave the place where she keeps vigil every night for her dead parents. As it happens Dana runs into a man she and her sister once saved from drowning. Sam Trevor, and she turns to him for help with the two girls. Recovering from a disastrous love affair Dana decides to stay on at least for the summer in the hope that Quinn’s mind will change. However, as time passes she discovers that there is something unknown about her sister’s death. There are more mysteries and thanks to Sam opportunities on Hubbard’s Point than she had ever dreamed.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Enough Reading, but not her best (still I'm a Rice fan) 3. April 2002
Von mzglorybe - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This story is of two generations of sisters, Dana and Lily, and Lily's daughters, Quinn and Allie. Dana Underhill, the main character, is a well-known artist, known for her ability to capture on canvas, her most passionate love, the sea. Living and painting in France when a tragedy takes the life of her beloved sister, Dana comes home to Hubbards Point, Connecticut, where she and her sister, Lily first learned to sail and fell in love with the sea. Now her life is about to change entirely as she is thrust with the responsibility of raising her two nieces who are struggling to accept the death of their parents, in what may or may not be an accident on a sailboat. A former student, Sam Trevor who fell in love with Dana when she taught him to sail at the age of 8, has never forgotten her, re-enters her life as an adult only to find his feelings for her are strong and he wants to be at her side to help her through this awful time in her life. The relationship between them is interesting enough, but not the heart-stopping emotional kind that brings tears to your eyes. As usual Ms. Rice does a great job of portraying the young people in this story, their frustrations, anxieties and all the emotions involved in losing their parents, and acceptance in what life hands them. I think this book lacks some of the passion that her other novels have had. It was one I found I could set down for a day or two and get back to it, as opposed to not being able to put it down and reading far into the night. I am a Luanne Rice fan. I especially liked Cloud Nine and Follow the Stars Home.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An okay read 28. Januar 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This was my first Luanne Rice book. It was definitely not a "kleenex" book but it wasn't dull either. The book paralleled two generations of sisters and conveyed well the dynamics between the relationships. Although Lily was the "dead sister", she had a strong, well-defined presence and I felt like I knew her by the end of the book.
Overall, though, I found it hard to warm up to the characters. I couldn't relate to Dana's free-spirited, artsy nature. Sam reminded me of an over-ardent puppy gamboling after its master. The romance between him and Dana didn't seem believable and I hard time getting past the difference in their ages. Allie was dependent and rather brainless (still sucking her thumb at age ten and carrying around a stuffed animal!), while Quinn was obnoxious and foul-mouthed. She didn't ring true as a twelve year old, especially the mature writing in her diary. I was taken aback by the foul way she spoke in front of adults, and no one made a move to correct her. The scandal involving Mark and Lily turned out to be tame and relatively meaningless.
Despite those drawbacks, the plot moved along nicely and it was a pleasant read, although nothing that moved me intensely or stayed with me after I closed the book. Since everyone is raving about Cloud Nine, I'll give Luanne Rice one more try before I write her off.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A big fan 18. März 2003
Von Theresa W - Veröffentlicht auf
I'm a big fan of Ms. Rice. I think she's officially my new favorite author (I needed an update from Danielle Steel...)Anyway, it did take me a little while to get "into" this story. Where as some of her books I'll be immediately enthralled. But once the story really got going, I enjoyed it. I don't think it was boring. Maybe yes, not her best book, but I'd definitley recommend reading it. I thought there were a lot of great scenes. Very sad story and the suspense kept the pages turning to see what would unfold.

3.0 von 5 Sternen An intriguing struggle of a story. 30. September 2002
Von Betti Trapp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Dana Underhill has just had an unexpected and totally traumatic life change. She must go from being a well known artist in France to become a mother to her two nieces in Long Island Sound. Tragically, Dana's sister and brother-in-law have been killed, and now Dana must take on, with the help of Grandma, two sullen and emotionally destroyed children, both girls. At first Dana plans to take Allie and Quinn back to France with her, to introduce them to a new lifestyle, to move them away from the tragedy. But a link with an old swimming student and fate steps in to change Dana's mind. Quinn is convinced her mother's death could not have been an accident, after all, it had been family tradition to take swimming lessons until the age of ten or so in the event of an emergency, and there was no way her mother, Lily, could have succumbed to a simple sailing accident. Quinn is determined to find out the truth, and she is the anchor that holds the story together. Well put and well written, not striking, but a good afternoon read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Safe Book 14. März 2002
Von elizabeth robison - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the story of sisters,Dana and Lily,their love for each other,their love of the sea. As young women, when giving sailing lessons, they take on eight year old Sam,a poor boy. When Sam nearly drowns and is saved by them he vows to protect them forever. Dana becomes a renowned artist of the sea.Lily marries Mark,producing Quinn and Allie. The tragic sailing death of Lily and Mark forces Dana to leave France and her lover. She returns to Hubbard's Point, Connecticut to care for Quinn and Allie. What follows is the tale of Dana's efforts to be a mother to Allie and the rebellous twelve year old Quinn who is convinced her parents' death was not an accident. Sam is now an oceanographer. He reenters Dana's life at a time when she desperately needs help,fullfilling his boyhood promise to care for her,loving her at the same time.However,the story,although very well written,tends to become tedious and repetitious. The character development is excellent;each person is fully dimensional. It is typical Luanne Rice,a sweet story of family conflicts,love, tragedies, and near tragedies with a happy ending ,following a near disaster. It is a pleasant read,but I think a lesser Luanne Rice book. If you know nothing about the sea or sailing you will become familiar with them just by reading this,as the entire story revolves around both.
