Rockaway Beach, 2001. Sarah, a painter from southern California, retreats to this eccentric, eclectic beach town in the far reaches of Queens with the hopes of rediscovering her passion for painting. Sarah has the opportunity for a real gallery showing if only she can create some new and interesting work. There, near the beach, she hopes to escape a life caught in the stasis of caregiving for her elderly parents and working at an art supply store to unleash the artist within. One summer, a room filled with empty canvasses, nothing but possibility.

I read this book because I had seen a review and because I am originally from Long Island. My mother grew up in Far Rockaway, so this book had some personal meaning to me. However, other than that, I would rate this book a 3 on a scale from 1 to 5. It's the story of a self-absorbed woman who just can't seem to get anything done. She is conflicted and that may be the basis for a start of a book, but I felt that it was pretty thin content. Not bad, but not great. Meh!
