Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In the famed romantic tradition that only Barbara Delinsky can deliver, you'll meet emotion-packed characters who make you forget whatever it was you were doing before you picked up Coast Road. In this story, workaholic Jack McGill is brought to his knees when he learns that his ex-wife Rachel is in a coma after a car accident. When he rushes to her side to be a dutiful father to his children, he is met with abrasive verbal abuse not only from his children, but also from Rachel's best friends.

By the time the doctors tell him they don't know how long Rachel will be in the coma, Jack has reacquainted himself with his children, and fond memories have surfaced of his ex-wife and her creative artistic talent. Through Rachel's best friend, Katherine, Jack learns about a secret Rachel had hidden from him during the days they were married. The secret, revealed through artwork, is one of the many factors that thrust Jack into "introspection mode." He reevaluates his life, digging deep into his heart's desires, and decides to quit his job and stay at Rachel's side, even if she never wakes up.

Coast Road deals with some very difficult subjects, such as miscarriage, divorce, traveling husbands, breast cancer, and the ramifications of living in a coma. However, once you get past the research exposition and the bantering, you'll laugh and cry (a lot) at what this once-separated family goes through. Delinsky paints vivid pictures of Rachel, who remains in a coma for about 99 percent of the book, but you'll see that it sometimes takes a life-threatening accident to rekindle the fires of love. --Candy Paape

From Booklist

Jack McGill wakes in the middle of the night to an emergency phone call: his ex-wife Rachel's car crashed through the guardrail on a coastal road near her home in Big Sur, and she has been taken to surgery. Will Jack come? He hurries to her side more for their daughters' sake than for Rachel, still not understanding why she left him six years ago. But Samantha and Hope need him, and he's still their father. When Jack arrives at the hospital, he's met by Katherine, Rachel's best friend, who updates him on her condition: Rachel is in a coma. All they can do is wait. As Jack prepares to step back into family life, he promises the sleeping Rachel that he will care for their daughters. As the slow days pass, Jack has to deal with withdrawn Hope, belligerent Samantha, and protective Katherine, who keeps asking him: Why is he here? What does he hope to gain? Will he hurt Rachel, again? Jack spends his time sitting next to Rachel reminiscing about their marriage, learning about the new Rachel from her friends, and realizing that he wants to be part of the family again. He wonders, Will Rachel regain consciousness? Does she still love him? Delinsky delivers an emotion-packed journey of truth and redemption, firmly cementing her status as a best-selling writer of top-notch books. Although the end of the story is never in doubt, the sheer impact of the whole makes this a winner, sure to appeal to readers of Nora Roberts, Sandra Brown, and Jayne Ann Krentz. Melanie Duncan

I was fascinated by the way the author, Barbara Delinsky, captivated me. She managed to write the feelings of Jack McGill in a way I thought only another man could understand. She took layer after layer of the outer self from each identity in the book, revealing the inner being in each. This was even true of Rachael, who was in a coma for 90% of the narrative, to Rachael's friends, and to Jack. It was interesting, and fun, getting to know the individuals, molding my impression of each.
It took some real talented writing to make me like Jack from the get-go, while leaving Rachael to be respected first, and liked only after more than half of the book was gone.
This was the first book of Barbara Delinsky's that I read... and her writing style has captured me, making me look for other books by her. I almost immediately found "Lake News" and found it to be just as "readable and enjoyable."
It is always a pleasure to find new authors to search for and enjoy. I believe I will read many more "Delinsky's!"

Coast Road is one of Barbara Delinsky's best, although it took me some time to realize it. I read the back cover many times before I decided to read it, based solely on the fact one of the two main characters was in a coma for much of the story. I was never a fan of flashbacks, but Coast Road is a unique book.
Divorced for 6 years, Rachel Keats and Jack McGill followed different paths that ultimately would lead them to the same place...to a roller coaster ride of emotions that were solely Jack's. In the middle of the night, Jack is awakened by a phone call informing him that the mother of his two daughters is in a coma following a car accident. He rushes to be with his daughters, but as they struggle with the idea of life without Rachel, Jack realizes he still loves his former wife. The format of the story is filled with vivid memories--(I don't want to call them flashbacks)--and present day pains: the understanding that love is a fleeting thing that you must catch it while you can.

This is not the first book I have read by this author but I liked it much better than the first. . .the first Faces of Grace was a good book, but remeinded me of my parents who both had alzheimers. .this book was more of a challenge to me as I know very little about people in comas. The story kept my attention and made me want to turn the pages to make things happen faster. this was a very good read, and I would suggest it to anyone. . Another great book somewhat different is Stolen Moments by Barbara Jeanne Fisher . . .this too is a book you will want to read at least once, or maybe more . . .Both books touch your heart in a big way.

This was for sure an "I can't put it down" book! I loved it from cover to cover. I just couldn't wait to see what would happen next! If you want to another read a book that goes straight to your heart, read Stolen Moments by Barbara Jeanne Fisher. . .It is a beautiful story of unrequited love. . .for certain the love story of the nineties. I intended to give the book a quick read, but I got so caught up in the story that I couldn't put the book down. From the very beginning, I was fully caught up in the heart-wrenching account of Julie Hunter's battle with lupus and her growing love for Don Lipton. This love, in the face of Julie's impending death, makes for a story that covers the range of human emotions. The touches of humor are great, too, they add some nice contrast and lighten things a bit when emotions are running high. I've never read a book more deserving of being published. It has rare depth. Julie's story will remind your readers that life and love are precious and not to be taken for granted. It has had an impact on me, and for that I'm grateful. Stolen Moments is written with so much sensitivity that it made me want to cry. It is a spellbinder. What terrific writing. Barbara does have an exceptional gift! This book was edited by Lupus specialist Dr. Matt Morrow too, and has the latest information on that disease. ..A perfect gift for someone who started college late in life, fell in love too late in life, is living with any illness, or trying to understand a loved one who is. . .A gift to be cherished forever.

In all fairness I listened to this story on audiocassettes (ABRIDGED) I checked out of the library. I wasn't impressed with this story. After reading all the terrific reviews I must admit I let my excpectations get too high. I was expecting a story that would move me much like a LaVyrle Spencer novel. I couldn't connect with these characters. I was unable to comprehend why Rachel didn't discuss things with Jack when their marriage broke up six years before? Why did Jack allow this to happen without explaination? I couldn't believe the author wanted me to accept the concept of them getting back together because she had been in a coma. Why did it take this to make them want to talk about their probelms? I felt that if the marrige meant anything to the two of them, they would have at least tried to talk. I think it could have been plausible if they had tried to work things out through discussion and then found they still wanted a divorce. I had a real probelm with Jack allowing his 15 year old daughter to tell him what she intended to do on prom night. Who was the adult? I can understand that certain young people can be very mature, but the adult is responsible for setting guidelines etc. Why do we want our young people to have to make adult decisions so soon? I'm no advocate of keeping young people in the dark about things, but as a teenager I really appreciated my parents giving me rules and guidelines to follow. Before we know it we are all grown up and full of responsibilities. I'm only 30 years old and I felt it was very irresponsible of Jack to handle things the way he did? I'm sorry but I didn't like this book, I gave it 2 stars because I listened to an abridged audio and wanted to give the author the benefit of the doubt on what I didn't get from this story.
