This is a video which summarises the story, Sandpiper.
This is a presentation that makes a deeper analysis on the story.
This is my personal conclusion on the story:
I liked the general topic of the story, but what I didn’t like about it is the sadness it transmitted. While I was reading the story I felt really sad and sorry for the portagonist. I could place myself in the position of beign physically on a location and physcologically in another one. like the protagonist. I liked the symbolism of the sanpiper and what it meant in the story, her drifting and coming back from her memories and old good times.
