I have always enjoyed this author, but this book was a huge disappointment. I felt like I was being lectured on environmental issues - I don't mind some of this, but felt it was way too much. As far as the dialogue, for two people who were supposedly "withdrawn", they certainly managed to talk their issues and feelings to death! I found myself skipping over many pages just to learn how the plot developed. As far as the supporting characters, they were not very believable - everyone was a little too good to be true. I think the concept of a community that supported each other could have been more realistically portrayed. Frankly, I just couldn't relate to the main characters.
