Beachcombers is one of those books that I am ambivalent about. I think Mrs. Thayer is a talented author. She has great character development and writes with a strong sense of place when describing Nantucket, the setting of the novel. I was drawn into the story quickly, and enjoyed a lot of it.
I almost didn’t finish the book, but I wanted to see how it all turned out. There are enough interesting places in the plot to keep one’s interest, but if you want a good, clean book, you will not like this one.
I give Beachcombers a one out of five stars.
