Loved it

The book really takes you through the trial of Lily Beach's struggle to become her own person and not fall victim to the demons that plauge her. It is about a woman's struggle for freedom, self expression, and love.

One of my favorite books.

This book was so good, I waited a few months and read it all over again. Originally I borrowed it from the library, but after I read it I had to go out and buy it. It's simply the kind of book you can't put down.


Jennie Fields is the author of one of my favorite books, Crossing Brooklyn Ferry. As soon as I finished that book, I checked to see if she had written anything else and came upon this title. The jacket cover didn't exactly scream for me to read this book as it describes "how it takes place in the '60's and Lily has discovered that sex is a Pandora's box" but I wanted to see if Fields was a one-book wonder or if I had truly found another author that I would loyally follow.From the first page until the last, I loved everything about this book. Fields' portrayal of Lily as a brooding, gifted, Bohemian artist draws the reader into her life where women are not her friends but men are unexplicably drawn to her. It follows Lily's life through her marriage, motherhood and what finally frees her from the secrets she has lived with. All the characters in this book are richly depicted. You will fall in love with Lily Beach and root for her to find that place within herself where she can find happiness. Jennie Fields is definitely the author to take you there. I can't wait for her to come out with another book.

Compelling, deep, addictive love story

Lily Beach is a novel that has something for everyone. It is a book with a truly great story. If you enjoy romance novels this book is one of the best. The story draws you in to the point where you miss the characters when you put it down. You feel yourself becoming Lily, feeling her joy and pain. When the book if finally over it is as though you are saying goodbye to a friend. It is a perfect mix of love, action, romance. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading- love stories or otherwise. It is a compelling, addictive novel. You feel yourself wrapped up in the characters, the setting, the life of the story. You will find yourself thinking about it even after you have finished reading it
