The Edge of Farallon by Peter Skinner is about finding your real happiness, it is about family, and it is about finding your place, especially when you have lost all hope. Wow, this was a quick read, but that does not mean this novel (or novella) lacked anything. It was fast paced, well-written, well-constructed, and had very well-developed characters. It is the perfect story that leaves you feeling fulfilled and really satisfied with its amazing theme of finding your own self and being able to stop fearing the unknown, especially when you know that you have your family right beside you.
Set in Northern California, The Edge of Farallon is the story of three people: two men and their niece. Their family’s land is in trouble and there is not much they can do about it except stick together and come up with a plan to save it. However, it is not easy, especially when family members are keeping secrets from each other. No one wants to work with the other, but they have no choice. They have to overcome their differences if they want to hold on to that land. But can they do it? Can they put their differences aside?
What can I say about Peter Skinner and his style of writing? The story is beautifully woven to paint pictures in your mind that you will not forget any time soon. His words have a powerful impact on you, especially when he is talking about love and family. The setting is wonderfully complementary of the theme of the novel. It is rugged, difficult and devastatingly beautiful. I loved absolutely everything about this novel. Very well written and well paced. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The amazing cover is just the cherry on top of this very entertaining, wholesome cake!
