Reviewed by Hayling Island Library Readers’ Group
Anita Shreve is a new author for our group and “Fortune’s rocks” impressed us. We thought the tale of a disastrous love affair, the social manners of the times and the differences in the life of rich and poor was beautifully told. We will read more of this author.
