For anyone who has known grief, Peggy’s story at the beginning is understandable. While at times you want to smack her in the head and say, “Move on,” grief has its own agenda.

Enter the mysterious stranger. It’s hard to believe his story at first. When it becomes believable, it’s obvious the two are in love. The question becomes, will he disappear as suddenly as he appeared?
As a former sail boat sailor the cover caught my eye,the story was unusual but held my attention.I loved the characters & the setting.I will review more books written by Susan Delaney.
Wanted more of their life after declaring their love. What's Owen thinking about. When he looks at the woman he loves
This is a decent story overall, but as far as romance goes, I thought it was lacking a little. Peggy is supposed to be in her 20s, but the way she was written was so stick-in-the-mud that it made her sound more like a prickly middle-aged woman. It also got a little irritating how she was so weirdly motherly with Owen, while also constantly comparing him to her dead husband -- all the "my husband was SO much better-looking, my husband was a confident man's man, Owen is so childlike...", at one point she even goes so far as to basically call Owen a wimp! -- and yet we're suppose to buy that they have this forever kind of love?! And Peggy's reminiscing about her trip to Prague with husband Peter... did that really need to go on for 13 pages?! Oh, and Owen the sailor confessing that he's never been with any women except for prostitutes, and Peggy never has him tested before thinking about throwing down? Blech. So yeah, I had some issues with the character development but I DID like the time-traveling element. This story kinda reminded me of the movie Kate & Leopold (though I confess to liking the film more) and I liked Owen as a character, I just didn't get how he was so enamored with Peggy (I just really didn't find her that interesting) and I wish he would have been allowed more of a presence in the story, seeing as how he was a main character and all. It felt like a forced romance onto Guy 2 with a woman who wasn't even remotely over Guy 1. I got a good laugh from Owen's observance of gyms -- people in this modern world doing so little physical movement that they have to pay someone to move heavy things X-D
Peggy Millwright is 29 years old and a widow; her husband Peter died two years ago. The love she has for her deceased husband still envelopes her mind. Walking along the beach one day she sees a man lying down in the sand. His clothes are ragged and, when he comes to, he is confused at best. She takes him to her house with plans to help him out and then send him on his way.

She learns his name is Owen and he insists that he is from 1853. The last thing he remembers is being thrown out to sea from the ship he was on. He was a sailor. Peggy is doubtful but his innocence and mannerisms cause her to slowly change her mind. What was suppose to be one day turned into weeks, then months. This is an unusual time travel story with the hero coming forward in time. Like Peggy, I wanted to see that Owen received proper assistance. He is both gentle and kind; his past plays a realistic part of his new future.

This appears to be Ms. Delaney's debut. Unfortunately it looks like she hasn't written anything else except except IRISH STORIES OF LOSS AND HOPE. I would have enjoyed to see her write more romances. Ms. Delaney appears to have good insight with the mechanics of love and relationships.

Peggy narrates her story using first person tense and this might be a turn-off for some readers though it didn't bother me. Sometimes the author dwelled on Peter too much. A few situations could have been written with a couple of paragraphs instead of pages but this was an editing issue. All in all, A STAR TO SAIL BY is a likeable story. Don't expect intense romance and be aware that the few love scenes are mild. If you are aware of these issues when starting out you won't be disappointed.
Looking for a way to relax and take a break from the stress of the holidays? Or life in general? Treat yourself (or someone you like very much) to an afternoon with this book, which is among other things the perfect Christmas read, being set in the fall and winter holiday months. In her debut novel, Susan Delaney demonstrates an almost mesmerizing command of rhythm and cadence. The rhythms of walking and of the seashore pace the story in a way that allows the reader to be mindful of every virtue of this lovely book, and to relax and enjoy every moment spent with the thoroughly engaging characters Ms. Delaney has created. It's a love story, and a good one, but goes beyond that to address universal themes of love, loss, grief and what it takes to heal from them.

Grief is a universal experience. The Buddha acknowledged this when he told a grieving mother to "Go and find me four or five mustard seeds from any family in which there has never been a death." But in a society uncomfortable with any aspect of death, grief has become something to get over on a timetable--and not necessarily your own timetable. If you are a woman who has experienced grief, tragedy, love and loss, and the annoyance of well-meaning others full of good advice about "moving on with your life," who fail to understand that grief sometimes feels like the last precious tie with what you have lost--that is, if you are any woman on the planet--then this book is for you, and in heroine Peggy Millwright you are about to meet someone you totally get.

Grief makes time stand still for the grief-stricken, who are nonetheless aware that the world continues to go on around them. Nineteenth century society respected grief, and created a formalized space complete with rituals and milestones, a space apart from the regular movement of time and the demands of every day life. Peggy Millwright lives in comfortable enough circumstances to allow herself both her grief and the time and space to heal from it--if only she were allowed to. Peggy is forever having to defend herself from the imprecations of loving family and friends who are just so sure they know better. The only real conflict in the story in fact arises when the persistence of Peggy's self-appointed life coaches finally causes her to doubt her own sense of what is right for her.

Hero Owen Sinclair falls into the story from 1853 apparently with nothing but the (ragged) clothes on his back and a wild story to tell, but in reality he brings Peggy exactly what she needs most: a nineteenth century sensibility that respects her grief, allows her to heal in her own time, and give her something to run toward, instead of away from. Another reviewer mentioned that the book is suitable for all ages, and that is absolutely true. This is a love story between two people who help each other overcome fantastic obstacles. Peggy's grief and Owen's nineteenth century social strictures take the question of physical intimacy off the table until near the end of the book, when it finally occurs in circumstances even Mother would approve. The gentleness of the story, and the values of the characters, who demonstrate compassion, courage, honesty, responsibility and deep care for each other, make this thoroughly adult book also a great choice for a young adult read. If you have a tween or older daughter ready to graduate from young adult to adult fiction, this is the perfect book. Finally, the book is beautifully written and constructed, with polished attention to writing style, continuity and historical detail, as when nineteenth century character Owen remarks on the brightness of modern rooms. From first page to last, a thoroughly enjoyable and satisfying read that you don't ever want to end.
