Staff Reviews

Beatriz Williams’ ‘Along the Infinite Sea’ is a splendid novel that transports the reader to two very different eras – 1930’s Europe and 1960’s America.  She also gives us two women, Annabelle Dommerich and Pepper Schuyler, who on the surface seem very different, but as their stories weave together we see more commonness between them than expected.  What brings these two exceptional women together is a classic Mercedes. To tell more of the story would be to give too much away.  Instead, I will tell you what the reader gets is an intricately weaved story about love, commitment, friendships, promises and the ravages of war.  The gift the reader also gets from Williams are characters that are real, that have flaws, that make decisions that are not always in their best interest, but sometimes they have no other choice and most of all the good are not always good and the bad are not always bad.  These characters are real and they left a mark on me so strong that for days afterward I thought of them as friends that I did not want to say goodbye too.  I only hope that Beatriz Williams continues the story of these captivating characters.

“Heroines in different decades, Annabelle and Pepper both know the peril of loving a man seemingly always just beyond their reach as well as the need to escape in order to survive. Williams' novel follows Annabelle through the hurdles life throws her way in the years preceding World War II in Europe as well as the parallel trials and tribulations of Pepper during the 1960s. These complicated women meet when Pepper sells her restored Mercedes to Annabelle as a way to raise money for her own escape plan. Together, Annabelle and Pepper come to rescue each other and learn that sometimes love can survive life's trials.”
