The basis for the major motion picture of the same name. An entrancing memoir of how one woman's journey of self-discovery gave her the courage to persevere in re-creating her life. Life is a work in progress, as ever-changing as a sandy shoreline along the beach. During the years Joan Anderson was a loving wife and supportive mother, she had slowly and unconsciously replaced her own dreams with the needs of her family. With her sons grown, however, she realized that the family no longer centered on the home she provided, and her relationship with her husband had become stagnant. Like many women in her situation, Joan realized that she had neglected to nurture herself and, worse, to envision fulfilling goals for her future. As her husband received a wonderful job opportunity out-of-state, it seemed that the best part of her own life was finished. Shocking both of them, she refused to follow him to his new job and decided to retreat to a family cottage on Cape Cod. At first casting about for direction, Joan soon began to take pleasure in her surroundings and call on resources she didn't realize she had. Over the course of a year, she gradually discovered that her life as an "unfinished woman" was full of possibilities. Out of that magical, difficult, transformative year came A Year by the Sea, a record of her experiences and a treasury of wisdom for readers.… (més)

A pleasant small book about a woman's separation from her husband for a year and how she grew in that time. ( )

Loved this. Women need to take risks and this woman did it. She shook things up,went against the norm for a wife and mother!
This is all about lessons in life, lessons to learn and lessons learned. This should be required reading for all young women!!!!
All women period! ( )

heard her talk on cape journey of self discovery — I need to reread this!

Here is the entrancing story of how one woman emerged from a stagnant period, finding the energy to renew her marriage and the courage to persevere in the living of an unfettered life. Joan Anderson shocked both herself and her husband when she refused to follow him to an out-of-state job. Instinctively knowing that accompanying him at that point would be senseless, she chose instead to seek refuge in a cottage on Cape Cod. So began a seaside saga in which Anderson learned many lessons.

I was glad this was a short book or I dont think I would have finished it. Not a whole lot really happens, but if you like books that focus on thoughts and feelings, i think you would like it. ( )

A Year by the Sea chronicles Joan Anderson's life after she chooses to take a break from her marriage. Her children grown and on their own, her husband was offered a job in a new location. She chooses to move to their beach house instead of following him, reflecting on her feelings of repression and lack of appreciation on the years of marriage and motherhood. She takes time to find herself, her inner courage, and comes out the other side more confident and content.

Anyone who has been in a long-term marriage will be able to appreciate this book. Although her journey is different from mine (a beach house, really, Joan?), I could relate to her feelings and the experiences she gave herself during this year alone. It made me celebrate my relationship with my husband a little more and reminded me that regardless of our strong partnership, that I should always take time for myself.
