    I had to read this for a book club I can t imagine who picked it someone with no taste in literature apparently The Ocean Between Us hits so many cliches I m sure it s being optioned as a Lifetime original movie The story revolves around a Navy family who s just moved to the Pacific northwest Dad s about to ship out on another tour while Grace, the wife, suffers a midlife crisis, deciding to get in shape, start her own business and buy a house Her husband is against all these things which made m [...]

    sigh I guess there was a reason I kept putting this book off.The book is very disjointed There s a reason behind this, I supposed, to preserve the mystery of what actually happens, but it s almost like the book had 4 or 5 distinct chunks and Wiggs decided to mix them all up It was confusing until about halfway through the book.I also didn t like the little clues that were meant to mislead you assume incorrect conclusions.Grace, at almost forty, has a revelation that her life is not her own She a [...]

    I loved loved this book, It reminded me of what it must have been like for my many freinds as well as my Mother being a military wife This story is about a woman who reinvents herself after a life altering man walks into her husbands life and tells them he is this mans son Just as the husband is about to be shipped off to sea for months on in While he s away she learns that she needs to take care of herself and it shows the effects of how these life changes and an incident at sea changes their l [...]

    Steve Bennett had served in the Navy for 26 years He and his wife had reached a crossroad in their relationship He was deployed and left on a carrier with things unresolved He was assigned to work with a reporter, Francine Atwater, and show her around They were on night ops when he saw Rivera catch on fire Steve quickly threw his float coat over Michael Rivera to put out the flames and was blown off the ship in an explosion of the flares that Rivera was also trying to throw off the ship Rivera h [...]

    Reading significant portions of one s own life in a book other than one s own autobiography is an intriguing experience I was immediately transported back to those days when, like the three children in this book, I too could be called the Navy brat of an officer who was a pilot, an officer who also served on board ship that deployed from port and was gone for months at a time, leaving my mother in charge and me and my brother wishing my dad could have stayed home.Grace Bennett signed on willingl [...]

    Very mixed feelings about this book I like the subject of Navy families and a captain s family in particular Much of the external is true, and some of the internal conflicts I lived the military life and think the author captured many nuances for wives and kids That part I like and am continuing to the end.But the inner dialogue is often over written, based on a good central idea but written to the point of tedium This is particularly done just before a major event and feels as if the editor aut [...]

    I had a real hard time getting into this one I usually enjoy all of Ms Wigg s books, so I don t really understand why I had such a hard time with this one The characters seemed very real to me, but maybe I just didn t like how long it took to get to the point of everything Not my favorite story, unfortunetly.

    Sometimes all I want is a well written chick lit book with family secrets, emotional characters and no smut This fit that bill and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I almost didn t read this one because I didn t think I d finish it in time since I didn t get to start it until Friday night I had also just finished another book in the similar genre and thought I might need a change But I m so so glad I decided to read it because I really really enjoyed it and finished it in plenty of time The Ocean Between Us takes place over the course of one year in the Bennett family as they experience yet another year as a Navy family Grace Bennett has always stuck by her [...]

    RATING 3.75 starsSusan Wiggs The Ocean Between Us has been in my to read pile for a while now, so I finally decided to try it out I m not a huge reader of chick lit and I ve never read a book by this author before, so I wasn t really sure what to expect going into it I was pretty surprised by how much I ended up liking it The Ocean Between Us revolves around a few US Navy families, and the hardships that come with living that kind of lifestyle Grace s husband Steve has been in the Navy ever sinc [...]

    It wasn t as good as some of hers, but I had trouble putting it down

    I didn t expect this book to be as appealing and entertaining it surprised me because it s been a while since I read anything outstanding by this author I liked the aspect of the Navy wives , who have to cope with every aspect of family life while their husbands are away on long time deployment I enjoyed the Bennett family dynamics very much The three teenage kids were simply great They had personality, I loved that Actually all the characters were all balanced out perfectly The main thing I tak [...]

    Nora Roberts describes this book, The Ocean Between Us by Susan Wiggs as A human and multi layered story exploring duty to both country and family After reading The Story of Us, a under 100 page short story, I wanted to read the sequel Lovely read about a naval family and how the wife evolves into a strong, independent woman, while still remaining true to her husband and children Nora Roberts description is accurateI recommend this book, but the short story first.

    Wow Another great book by Susan Wiggs I am absolutely loving this author Here is a book that a lot of people, especially women, can relate too Even if you have never experienced military life, you can find yourself relating to a lot of these characters She really did her homework when it comes to this way of life Highly recommended

    Lovely story of changes in relationships overtimed how emotions are so different for individual people Truly makes you take a minute to sit and think if you still appreciate the relationship you are in and what direction you want it to go in.Excellent read for those married forever and a day

    Really enjoyed this book about a Navy family and how the wife Grace and the 3 kids coped when the father was out to sea Grace wanted her own business and house when Steve the husband was deployed and she did it I like how it focused on the kids also Typical ending but enjoyed it.

    The best part of this book was the very beginning with the information dump concerning the workings and life aboard a naval aircraft carrier After that the book is cheesy and predictable, kind of like a bad made for TV movie.

    Look forward to reading of this author

    A Navy wife has unusual strength to be able to withstand being separated from their husband when he s at sea for months at a time Taking care of home and children and the separation from her husband can make or break a marriage Such is the situation in Wiggs book The Ocean Between Us Wiggs covers many of the possible scenarios that can play out in this situation After 20 years of marriage, and information about a former marriage she knew nothing about, Grace Bennett doubts their marriage Her hus [...]

    I read this a long time ago but I remember how much I enjoyed it Grace Bennett is the hub of her family She holds the fort down as her Navy husband is deployed Her children have needs that accompany military children moving so much As so many moms do, she feels like she doesn t know what she wants and who she is any Moms give so much of themselves for their family Maggie feels that her marriage is not what it should be But her husband has an important position on the ship that he is deployed on [...]

    The book is too long for a book club However, there is enough for a good book club discussion life with teenagers, mid life crisis how to reinvent yourself and understanding a bit about how it is for spouses of navy men women I enjoyed the book It is one of many my aunt gave me I love authors truths that stop me in my tracks and make it go back and reread the comment over and over Here is one from The Ocean Between Us Chances can slip away while you are looking for guarantees.

    This is standard romance novel stuff not to be read as high brow literature I read it because I met the author, a funny, charismatic woman and I was fascinated to read how an author with minimal military connections some friends would capture the essence of many struggles, we military spouses face She did a fair job I was able to relate to many of the frustrations and challenges referenced She even did a pretty good job with the acronyms and vernacular common in Navy life I would recommend this [...]

    The main character turns 40 and has a mid life crisis Her husband, a career Navy man, is clueless While he is away, she loses weight, has a make over, starts a successful business and buys a house Meanwhile, the kids don t want to go to the colleges dear old dad has picked for them Then a crisis puts everything in perspective, husband and wife see the light, and everyone lives happily ever after The End The think I liked best about the book was the description of the life of a Navy family.

    Poignant and moving, I could really feel Grace s struggle to re find herself in a marriage that seemed like it had run its course Wiggs creates a powerful image of what it s like to be left behind and the daily struggles of living life with a partner in the navy forces Her skilled characterisation brings deep meaning to the story at hand As a reader, you can t help relating yourself to the doubts and fears she has, as well as the desperate need to fulfil her own dreams whilst helping those aroun [...]

    It was better than I expected in terms of insight into the marriage and looking at situations from different perspectives there were some stereotypical characters too, but really, aren t there in every story I found the teenage characters somewhat reactionary towards their Mom, Grace these Navy wives and husbands are a stoic lot I enjoyed the description of Washington state And a military story without a lot of graphic combat I will read of Susan Wiggs.

    I realized as I began reading that I had read this book before I didn t re read it beyond the first 3 chapters so it is hard to review I like the author and that she touches on difficult topics.

    Beach read

    Would have given it 5stars, but for the slow middle part of the book, the trials of a us navel family.
