The Tumble Inn William Loizeaux

What's the book about:
Tired of their high school teaching jobs and discouraged by their failed attempts at conceiving a child, Mark and Fran Finley decide they need a change in their lives. Abruptly, they leave their friends and family in suburban New Jersey to begin anew as innkeepers on a secluded lake in the Adirondack Mountains. There they muddle through their first season at the inn, serving barely edible dinners to guests, stranding themselves in chest-deep snowdrifts, and somehow, miraculously, amid swarms of ravenous black flies, conceiving a child, a girl they name Nat. Years later, when Mark and Fran are nearing middle age and Nat is a troubled teenager, Mark's life is ripped apart, forever changed, and he must choose between returning to his old home in New Jersey or trying to rebuild what is left of his life and family in the place of his greatest joy anddeepest sorrow. The Tumble Inn is a moving drama about home and about the fragility and resilience of love.
My thoughts on the book:
Ok where do I begin with the book, have to say not my favorite book. The storyline was ok, I felt instead of reading a fiction book, I felt like I was reading a poorly written diary or journal, with so much detail it seemed to me a book on details more then a story. I kept waiting for a part to say "and then" "and than". The book did deal with tough things like them having a hard time getting pregnant, a job they don't like, telling a fib to try to get another job. But over all it just felt that it was a journal being written.

I was given a copy of this book for my honest review from netgalley
