Product details

This was a very quick read. I liked the Nantucket setting live in MA Yes, it touched upon many, many issues illness, miscommunication, betrayal, immaturity and loss of love all at the same time, and for some readers it bogged down the story, but most families rarely deal with just one issue at the same time, so I did not find this distracting. Agree that Goldstein's style of writing is similar to Nicholas Sparks's Jun 23, Pearl rated it it was ok. The same accessible writing style is still here, but the plot of "Prince" was really nothing to write home about.

A callous politician goes back to his home in Nantucket, discovers a family secret, and suddenly goes from hating his Alzheimer-inflicted mother to loving and reconciling with her. Very inconsistent and not fully fleshed-out characters, though the ending did have an emotional punch reminiscent of The Notebook. Jul 18, JoAnn rated it liked it. A bit different from my normal family dramas. This one centers around a son who turned his back on his mother only to return as she approaches the last days of her life. He realizes all his ideas about his mother were incorrect and he learns that he is not ready to let her go.

Also, there is the side story of the main characters trouble relationship with his own daughter. I had no idea this story would affect me so profoundly; I too am going through a similar scenario with my own mother although we have always been close. This is a deeply moving, passionate story of courage in the midst of struggle, of finding one's way back and of undying love.

I highly recommend this book.

The writing in this book is not great - it lacks the colorful phrases and descriptors of some of the other books I've read recently and the dialogue is flat, but the story is compelling nonetheless.

Jan 28, Lori Rice rated it did not like it Shelves: I only read the whole thing because the story itself had potential and the book wasn't completely unreadable. However, the characters were cookie-cutter, the dialogue was clunky and totally unrealistic and it read like a college sophomore living out on paper his fantasies of what he wanted his life to be like when he reached his 40s. The whole thing was about a subtle as an anvil.
