Cottage by the SeaCottage by the Sea by Debbie Macomber

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A nice beach read with a bit of deep mental and emotional exploration. I ended up converting to the audiobook version which I quite enjoyed.

It featured a classic love story with tension surrounding mental and emotional health conditions and how the characters overcame a lack of acceptance and coping. There were bits of explanation about the coping process itself which was both interesting and somewhat distracting at the same time because it took me in and out of the story, yet was also helpful at getting to the rationale of certain behaviors and thought patterns.

I loved the gardening parts of the story and the tranquil atmosphere that was created surrounding the cottage by the sea theme and the human longing for place and belonging in a relationship and peace.

There seemed to be repeats in the text itself, perhaps an oversight in the editing process. I don’t think they were intentional because they didn’t add anything to the story or help me gain better perspective or emphasis. The love story itself seemed a little juvenile for the ages that were portrayed but I did enjoy it nonetheless.
