The Wanderer
Author
Robyn Carr
Rating
Excellent!
Summary
This is Book 1 in a new series that she has created about the (fictional, I think) town of Thunder Point, Oregon. As such, the reader is introduced to many of the characters in the town, as well as their relationships, backgrounds, and situations that they are involved with.
Enjoy?
I did enjoy the book. The author describes each character as well as what the town, Thunder Point, is like in great detail - this makes me feel as if I know the town and the people in it, or at the very least, I want to visit them!
Suggest?
If you liked Robyn Carr's Virgin River series, I would definitely recommend this book (and the subsequent books that will follow). I already can't want to read the next few books in the series!
