One of Shreve's better novels.

Honora and her new husband move into an older house by the sea. Full of hope for her future, Honora industriously works on the house, which the couple is buying. Her husband, Sexton, is not of the same character. He is a traveling salesman who sells typewriters. For a while, Honora travels with him, demonstrating the typewriters, helping with the sales.

Sexton is less interested in working on the house, more interested in pursuing his dreams of more money, better cars. When he falls on harder times he does not adjust well, finally finding a job in the nearby city. But the workers at the loom factory are striking.

Honora becomes involved in the town's conflict, in the process meeting men and women and a boy, Alphonse, who seems to be on his own. She is impressed with McDermott, a man with his own burdens, and she, along with a rich neighbor, takes risks.

A lot of character development here, and I became fond of Honora and McDermott and Alphonse. Shreve avoids a sappy story or perfect resolution, which I appreciate. ( )

This book took me a while to get into. At first, I didn't like some of the characters but then the more I kept reading, the more involved I got into their lives. Of course, it really got interesting when they all found each other and were involved in what was happening at that time in history. This really opened my eyes to the textile mills and unions. I had no idea that back in 1930, people were massacred because they chose to strike or help those that were striking. This was in America! This book became fascinating. ( )

I loved that Honora loves sea glass, but her new husband thinks it is trash. To Honora they were broken shards of colored glass that were discarded but the sea had made it strong and beautiful.

Vivian, a friend that Honora met on the beach was smart, sassy and wise. Vivian can see a way to the future and she valued friendship as it should be.

Sexton sees everything as money or potential money. He is a typewriter salesman, smooth talker but not completely honest. Sexton does not how to adapt with adversity. He is only for himself not for others. When he lost his sales job he finally gets another one at the textile mill. He never accepted the change in his after the stock market crash.

McDermott cared about people and when the little mill boy, Francis' mother dies, he takes him under his wing. He is very caring and I kept wishing that Honora and he were married instead.

My heart went for Francis, his mother was to my father's. In the Great Depression, families were divided up between the relatives.

I loved this and the only thing that was difficult was introduction of so many characters all at once at the beginning. But I took notes and it all fit together. I would have liked a longer ending too. Just make sure that the characters were all settled down! ( )

In a small beach town in 1929, a young wife and husband, Honora and Sexton, move into a fixer upper. A young rich woman named Vivian suffers a bit of ennui. A mill worker, McDermott, gets involved with starting a union and looks out for eleven-year-old Alphonse. Each of these characters are so different, yet we see parts of the story of that one year from each point of view as they intersect and weave in and out of each other's lives.

Though I'm familiar with Anita Shreve's name and some of her bestselling titles, I've never read any of her works so I have nothing to compare this particular piece of historical fiction to. From what I've read, the house on Fortune's Rocks comes up in a couple of her titles. It's set in a fictional town but based on a real place, and details of the seaside, hints of the Depression, and the reality of mill work were rendered well. But I think the best part of this story, for me, was that Shreve takes fallible characters and makes their ordinary lives epic. You feel so deeply for them as they get pounded by the surf of life, yet come out on the other side much like the sea glass Honora collects. ( )

Sexton is a salesman who sells typewriters and Copiograph machines. He goes to his bank and falls in love with the teller, Honora. They end up marrying and moving into an abandoned house on the beach in New Hampshire.
Vivian is a well-to-do woman who likes to party and ends up involved with Dickie, although their relationship is less formal.
Alphonse is a young boy who works at the mills in Ely Falls. There are many children that are working to help support families.
McDermott is a strike organizer and is attempting to get the workers to join a union for better wages and benefits.
These people all come together, haphazardly. The personalities are all very different, but when they end up together working to unionize the mill workers, we glimpse the way people are drawn to each other, no matter what the difference in personalities.
Honora is a collector of sea glass and has a platter full of all the pieces that she has collected. Very symbolic of the collection of characters in this novel. ( )
