I enjoyed Beyond the Point by Claire Gibson more than I thought I would for the first half. We know right from the beginning that one of three West Point friends’ husbands has died. But the story spends most of its time introducing us to the three woman who play basketball at West Point and taking them through their college and post college lives. Their stories were interesting (and a little predictable), but the last 100 pages were the ones that made the book better. I will admit, I was even brought to tears a few times. It’s a long read, but worth it – a good one to add to your beach bag.
