Caretakers is the second novel published by Tabitha King, and the first to take place in the town of Nodd's Ridge, Maine. The book was released in 1983. By all rights, they never should have known each other. Torie Christopher was a member of the Maine aristocracy, reckless and willful, wed to a blue-blooded doctor, and enjoying all the pleasures and privileges of wealth and position.

This is my second Tabitha King book, and I really enjoyed both. The way the story is told is interesting - jumping back and forth from the past to present.

I liked this book and I think if I had read it before reading the others with these same characters I would have liked it more.

This book was phenomenal. Previously I had read Tabitha King's Small World and I liked it, but this book is the one that proved to me that she is a massive talent. The prose is superb, elegant but accessible, and it is very dense, packed with information but never feels laborious. The structure was a think of brilliance, the non-linear flashbacks coming at just the right times. The characters were complex and fascinating. It's a shame her work is mostly out of print now. People need to be reading her.
Sorryyy
I purchased this novel ages ago and was totally enchanted. Someone on here gave it 4 and three quarter stars. I didn't even bother to read the review. I go back and read this again about twice a year. I am not a writer. I don't have to words to express what makes this book so brilliant or even to explain how it touched me as deeply as it did. If I had a choice I would rate this book a 10. The characters were so real I felt as id I'd known them all my life. The good guys were heroes in the best sense of the word. It is such a beautiful, touching story. Thank you Tabitha King,

Caretakers by Tabitha Kind is a very unique story. Tab is a great writer. Unfortunately, she is not taken seriously because she is Stephen King's Wife, Which Sucks. I found this tale so REAL and Inspired. Highly Recommended. No Spoilers Here. Just Read it.

The Caretakers is a bittersweet memory of two people who love one another over a span of years and miles of troubles. Their inability to part from one another is testament to the power of their love. Coming from opposite backgrounds and with completely different expectations of life, they nevertheless manage to attract each other and stay attracted despite all the tragedies that their relationship causes. Apart they are flawed, difficult people but together they achieve a sort of balance that is remarkable in its tenacity and caring. Not ordinary people by any means, they still come across as people you might know but never dream of interfering with. For all the grief they cause, a reader still cheers them on. Perhaps because they're an example of a love that can survive anything.
This is the type of book which one reads again and again, finding more in it to admire and enjoy each time. It explores the star-crossed relationship of Tory Christopher and Joe Nevers, two people who have nothing in common and yet are inexplicably drawn to one another. There's a mystery surrounding a couple of unexplained deaths, as well as subplots involving friendship, love, sex, revenge, prejudice, marriage, illness, and death. The way the book moves from the present day into flashbacks and then back makes it a bit difficult to follow when you first read it, but it is well worth a little effort. I consider it Ms. King's best book, and one of the best novels I've read in the past 20 years
