Bookwomyn, May 23, 2008 (view all comments by Bookwomyn)
I really wanted to like this book as I live in SF and the story took place here but geesh ... it just went on and on. The story of a woman who has lost her fiance's little girl on a walk on the beach on a foggy SF day. Relationship struggles ensue, she hands out piles of flyers and in the process visits virtually every tourist spot, street, coffee shop, restaurant in San Francisco. All of the mentions are familiar to me as I live in the City but after a while it just seemed as if she was trying too hard to get all these spots into the book. The name of all these places had little to do with the story but she just kept on and on ad nauseam. The resolution to the story is not plausable either ... Had she concentrated on the plot a little more it might have been an enjoyable read.
