Chincoteague and Assateague must have been beautiful in the 1860's but the flies and mosuitoes must have been unbearable A good beach read The story itself is cute but the storytelling falls a bit flat It reminds me a bit of a history textbook where there is a short blurb about a specific person with the intention of bringing history to life or making history personal it is interesting but you're left wanting a bit in terms of character development and prose For example there is far detail about the construction of the boat than there needs to be The characters are a bit two dimensional Despite that as previously stated the story is cute and you want to find out what happens Its a uick read and the perfect book to read on the beach while on the Eastern Shore No its not a work of fine literature but it is a cute and entertaining weekend read
