Reviews - What do customers think about Shipwreck at Sleeping Bear?

Swim Story  May 16, 2006
I enjoyed this book because I swam foe eight years and always wanted to read or see a "swimming" story. This is it! The romance between Kate and Cole was also interesting - and I learned about native americans because of Aupetchi. Good stuff.
I couldn't pit it down.........  May 7, 2006
I was hesitant to read this book, which was given to me as a gift. However, once I started I couldn't put it down - literally. I read it in one sitting. The characters and the conflict grabbed my attention and I had to see what happened. I enjoyed the history too, since it wasn't boring....for once!
Shipwreck Review  Feb 14, 2005
I have never been to Michigan before but this book made me feel as if I had been there at this seldom touched upon turning point in time. Shutt writes this story from the viewpoints of three completely different characters allowing the reader a completely unbiased prespective on the social situation of the time. Set in the Mackinac region of Michigan around the 1950s this story begins well into the busy lives of three young adults, a Native American boy, a working class girl, and her wealthy upperclass boyfriend. The series of events that unfolds causes the three of their lives to come together creating lasting effects not only on themselves, but on the entire island. Though fiction, Shutt doesn't fail to fill this novel with history and facts about the region making it an excellent read if one is interested in the area or Native culture. Shipwreck is a hard book to put down once you get into it, and although it takes place half a century ago it isn't hard to see parts of the story happening today in any town where differences between people are feared and mistrusted. Shutt's first work is charming and intelligent. I enjoyed it immensely.
Shopping List  Oct 9, 2004
I was given this book as a gift and absolutely loved it. It's cliche to say I couldn't put it down, but I couldn't. The book is unique in that three characters tell the story. Each has a unique view of the events that unfold. This kept me engaged in the story. The plot has plenty of twists and turns and the backdrop upon which the story unfolds is wonderful. The perfect setting for this fresh idea. Props to Robin Shutt. My holiday shopping has been made easier.
I liked it, a lot.  Aug 7, 2004
This was good story that kept my interest and taught me about Michigan history and Native American culture. It was hard to put down since I wanted to see how the three main characters evolved, and who Kate would end up with. I was surprised, and pleased, with the ending.
