Just read it, in a very short time (for me)and I
really enjoyed it...

So, would you recommend any more of hers?

I enjoyed it too unicorn. Some friends and I read it together, then we went on to read `The Last Time They Met' which was apparently the prequel to WW, but written after WW (?). Couldn't get into it at all, it was all very confusing. Others in the group enjoyed Pilots Wife and Sea Glass - not read these myself though.

Fortunes Rock is quite good, as is Sea Glass, but read FR first as Sea Glass features some places that FR does.

The first book of Anita Shreves I read was Resistance which remains my favourite.

Have read almost all her books. Fortunes rock was the first one I read and it was fantastic. The others were all almost as good.
So yes, definitely recommend.

will take a look at these.. thanks..
It takes a lot for me to get absorbed in a book these days, as am usually too knackered/stressed (see other threads!!)

WW for some reason just captured me.
Any plans for a film? it would be brill methinks.

It has already been made into a film, look here.

I have read all of hers
I liked them all but the latest one was a bit less perfect.
I did really like Fortune Rocks and then Sea Glass
Also the Eden one? Brain dead me LOL

I bought an Anita Shreeve collection 3 for £6.99 I think from The Book People just before Christmas if anyone's tempted.
