Publisher's Summary

After a tumultuous year in New York City, the Austins are spending the summer on the small island where their grandfather lives. He's very sick, and watching his condition deteriorate as the summer passes is almost more than Vicky can bear. To complicate matters, she finds herself as the center of attention for three very different boys. Zachary Grey, the troubled and reckless boy Vicky met last summer, wants her all to himself as he grieves the loss of his mother. Leo Rodney has been just a friend for years, but the tragic loss of his father causes him to turn to Vicky for comfort - and romance. And then there's Adam Eddington. Adam is only asking Vicky to help with his research on dolphins. But Adam - and the dolphins - may just be what Vicky needs to get through this heartbreaking summer.

Excellent listen!

The narration was excellent. The speed was just right. Very soothing voice to listen to. This is my first audible purchase and I am very pleased.

Favorite book of all time

This is my favorite book of all time. I had a copy from the time I was about 12 that I read probably 3 times a year at least until it finally fell apart at the seams at age 25.

This book is a book for all ages. It starts and ends with death, and it is a prominent theme throughout the book. But L'Engle writes about it in a way that helps people understand life better, rather than traumatizing them. This book has sort of a dreamy feel to it, which I love. Its a perfect book to read (or listen to) on a beach vacation.

I wasn't all that thrilled about the narration of the book. I felt like the narrator has too strong of a personality and imposed it upon the characters. But of course I still highly recommend this book.
