Produktbeschreibungen

From Booklist

Ever prolific and popular Delinsky has often considered the phenomena of near-death experiences granting second chances in life, but rather than rely on hackneyed notions of heroes rising Phoenix-like from the ashes to triumph over adversity, Delinsky grounds her characters in the here-and-now and presents them with dilemmas more familiar than fanciful. Such is the case in her latest work, a tale of three people quite literally thrown together following a boating accident off the Maine coast that spares them while taking the lives of nine others. At 40 Julia is an obedient wife, dutiful daughter, and devoted mother, and has planned a visit to her aunt Zoe to reflect on her obligation to herself versus her ties to her family. Rescued by fellow passenger Noah Prine, Julia feels connected to him by virtue of their shared tragedy while also being drawn to Kim Colella, the other survivor, whose whereabouts at the time of the crash provide a shadowy subplot. As a gentle romance blossoms between Julia and Noah, each evaluates who they were before the accident and who they hope to become in its aftermath. Once again, Delinsky excels at combining a compelling mystery with an insightful portrayal of captivating people facing challenges both ordinary and dramatic. Carol Haggas

Pressestimmen

"Delinsky may be as adept at chronicling contemporary life in New England as any writer this side of John Updike."

3.0 von 5 Sternen Schicksals- und Liebesgeschichte mit Längen 23. Mai 2006
Format:Taschenbuch
Julia wollte nur Urlaub bei ihrer Tante auf einer Insel vor der Küste Neuenglands machen. Doch bereits die Überfahrt mit der Fähre verändert ihr Leben schlagartig. Bei einer Bootskollision entrinnt sie nur knapp dem Tod. Dies wird für sie zum Auslöser, über einige Dinge nachzudenken, so auch über ihre Ehe und das Verhältnis zu ihren Eltern. Julia erkennt, dass sie bislang immer diejenige war, die sich gekümmert und gegeben hat. Doch zurück bekam sie kaum etwas. An diesem Wendepunkt ist der Kontakt zu dem einheimischen Fischer Noah für die Vierzigjährige von besonderer Bedeutung. Er ist ebenfalls Überlebender des Unglücks, hat dabei jedoch seinen Vater verloren. Gemeinsam fragen sie sich, warum ausgerechnet sie unversehrt blieben. Aber sie entdecken auch, dass es mehr als ein Unfall war.

Das Thema, wie Menschen damit umgehen, vom Schicksal verschont zu werden, während andere umkommen, hätte alleine einen schönen Stoff abgegeben. Dass diese beiden Auserwählten von dem traumatischen Ereignis zusammengeschweißt werden und zueinander finden, hat der Autorin jedoch nicht genügt. Schade, dass Barbara Delinsky es mit den Nebenerzählsträngen dann etwas übertrieben hat. So fügt sie eine kleine Krimihandlung über die wahren Hintergründe des Zusammenstoßes bei, ebenso wie zerrüttete Familienbande und einen Kleinkrieg unter Hummerfischern. Dies, ebenso wie sehr detaillierte Beschreibungen des Settings verleihen dem Roman einige Längen. Die gelungene Darstellung der Liebesgeschichte mit der langsamen Annäherung der Protagonisten kann den Gesamteindruck nur leicht verbessern. Für die Liebe, wie im Klappentext so schön formuliert, mag es nie zu spät sein, für die Story allerdings schon. (TD)

5.0 von 5 Sternen wonderful in depth relationship drama 8. Mai 2004
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For years her identity was defined as Janet's daughter, Molly's mother, or Monte's wife. She accommodated the needs of everyone else at the cost of her own. With her daughter out of the house, Julia Bechtel decides to escape from her spouse so she can ponder what she wants to do with her unfulfilling marriage. Julia takes the ferry to visit her Aunt Zoe on Big Sawyer Island off the Maine coast. However, another vessel runs into the ferry causing both boats to explode.
Julia, lobsterman Noah Prince, and islander Kim Colette are the only survivors. Julia realizes that for some unknown heavenly reason she has been provided with a chance to live life on her terms. Every day is a miraculous gift as she now knows she can never return to her unsatisfying life in New York unless substantial changes occur. Comfort comes in Noah's arms, but Julia wonders if she has the courage to seek love with him because that would disappoint her daughter and her parents whose opinions she values.
Every venture that Barbara Delinsky takes her fans on is unique as the author never writes the same book twice. THE SUMMER I DARED is a beautiful love story as much as a character study of an individual finding courage with her second chance at life. The eccentric secondary cast, especially the barrier island crowd, keeps the tale from turning too inwardly maudlin while also enabling the audience to see the inner struggles of the heroine. Noah has his own demons in a neglected teenage son. All this adds up to a wonderful in depth relationship drama that focuses on the turmoil of good caring people.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great summer read... 8. Juli 2004
Von Mercedes J. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I really got into this book right from the first chapter. The book starts off with a ferry accident that leaves only Julia, Noah, and Kim alive while 9 others are killed. It deals with the personal struggle Julia goes through to find her true self, and why she was spared, as well as the other two. There's also a little mystery thrown in about how and why the accident happend in the first place.
I must say though, sometimes Julia's wish-washyness got on my nerves, and I found myself wanting to yell at her to stand up for herself...but I think that's good when a book gets you so involved in the characters and their lives. I really recommend this book to anyone's that's interested...it's a wonderful little summer read that will hold your attention from the first page to the last.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Life in a lobster village 19. August 2004
Von Barbara Rhoades - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a story that is completely believable. From the moment I met Julia Bechtel and Noah Prine, I could actually visualize them as real people. Although this is a fictitious story, it made me believe I could see newspaper headlines of the boating accident.

Julia comes to Big Sawyer Island for a two week vacation but before the ferry can deliver her to the island and her aunt, there is a boating accident which kills all aboard except Julia and Noah. Big Sawyer is a lobstering island and all the residents pull together to rescue the victims.

Julia reviews her life. Her husband, Monty, her daughter, Molly and her aunt, Zoey and her parents, as well as Noah Prine are all people she thinks about. 20 years with Monty has been less than fulfilling and the accident causes Julia to re-evaluate what she wants out of life. She was spared when others weren't. The big question that bothers her as well as Noah is WHY they were spared. What are they to do now with their lives? Go on as before or made changes? And there is the question of what happened all those years ago between her mother and her aunt? Then, Molly shows up to comfort her mother but Julia knows there is something more than comfort on Molly's mind. Julia has to decide how she will go forward with her life.

Being good with a camera, Julia begins taking pictures of life on Big Sawyer. The newspaper prints them and Julie finds this rewarding. But in the printing of these pictures comes another problem. What is happening on Big Sawyer? Why was Artie's boat even near the ferry to cause the accident in the first place?

THE SUMMER I DARED tells about the changes in the lives of the islander's after such an accident and each word Ms. Delinksky writes is something I could see actually happening. There are twists and turns that happen in lives that have been affected by the accident and realistic every day problems that are just that, REAL. This is a well written story and one that I didn't want to stop listening to until every word had been spoken.

5.0 von 5 Sternen What if? 29. Juni 2004
Von Annie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
After being so disappointed with Delinskys last book Flirting With Pete I was not sure if I wanted to read The Summer I Dared but I am glad that I did. It is a wonderfully written story about what happens after we are faced with a life altering incident. In The Summer I Dared you will meet three very important people Julia, Noah, and Kim - the only survivors of a ferry accident that killed nine others. As you watch these three charactors live through the pain and guilt of being the only survivors, you will be asking yourself... What if something like this happened to me?

4.0 von 5 Sternen I liked this book a lot 19. August 2004
Von Long Island Lady - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this story very much. Julia is a woman who is trying to come to terms with a bad marriage and feelings of low self worth. She goes to an island were she has been happy in the past to have some time to herself. An unfortunate accident occurs and she along with two other survivors must come to terms with what happened. I liked this book because there were different elements to the story that made it interesting. There was a mystery, info on lobstering, Angora rabbits, romance and insight to relationships with people in Julia's life. The characters were interesting and I especially liked the relationship between Noah and his son.

I gave this book 4 stars because I rate only books that I LOVE with 5 stars. This is not my favorite Delinsky book but it did not disappoint. The characters were all interesting and had depth. For me a good book has characters that stand out even if their not the MAIN character and in this book they all stood out. I'm glad I added it to my Delinsky collection.
