It's said that it's best to write what you know. The Clam Trees is a great example. Gleaning from the life he's lived in Rhode Island and Cape Cod, travels and a long professional career, Bob Aubin has crafted a wonderful tale of all that's important in his life. Through strong unforgettable characters and true-to-life dialogue, he introduces the reader to the beauty of Cape Cod, fishing, the strong pull of friendship and family bonds. Throughout persists the belief that we build, protect and provide for those we love. And for me, best of all, is synchronicity which makes for a great story. Nothing feels contrived. I will not give away the story. Suffice it to say that I loved it and recommend it highly. Enjoy this intriguing vision of some well-lived lives!

I loved this book. It was about determination and courage and always following your heart. I enjoyed reading about the loyalty of a family and the closeness that kept some of the children forever united, no matter what. The story was diverse in its contents. The street people and the upper crust. I recommend this book to anyone who loves New England based novels and the life a very interesting man.

There is something to be said about a book that highlights integrity, self-sacrifice, and the drive to better oneself. I found the novel’s dialog and strong emotional content appealing driving me to finish the book in a single evening. The Clam Trees beautifully depicts the twists and turns that no amount of planning can prepare you for. The protagonist has had his share of bad luck but his intelligence and determination do not let him feel sorry for himself. The gruff Southern New Englander draws strength from his family and the ocean itself proving that one can be strong without being cruel, and that being vulnerable is the single bravest thing as humans we can do. If you love the ocean and long for the smell of salt in the air this novel will instantly bring you there. Big John is a compelling character you instantly find yourself empathizing with.
