Publisher's Weekly

Snelling (One Perfect Day) strikes a blow for family values in a story about a family that is not close either geographically or emotionally. Gillian Ormsby is a New York corporate executive returns to her California home to take care of her mother Dorothy, who appears to be physically healthy but who won't do anything but sleep. Gillian's sister, Allison, the preferred child who stayed close to home, is being less than helpful. When Gillian arrives after crossing the country, she finds her mother's once beautiful garden as wilted as its caretaker. She is aided in her efforts by her mother's dapper friend, Enzio, who brings killer pastries when he visits, and her mother's neighbor Adam, who owns a dog and a garden store and happens to be handsome. The narrative hits some true notes: Dorothy's passive depression will strike those caring for elderly parents as familiar. Off-notes include Allison, who needs more characterization, and Gillian's generic corporate career. The tale is uneven, but Snelling can certainly charm. (Apr.)

    This review was written for On Hummingbird Wings.
    I enjoyed this book so much! Lauraine Snelling is one of my favorite authors. This is about 31 yr old Gillian, a New York Exec working 70 hour weeks, rarely taking a day off. Her plan is to retire at age 52. Getting a call from her sister about their dying hyprchrondriac mother changes her life drastically. She arranges to take two days off and flites out to CA. Not having a key to the house and no answer to the doorbell she grabs a brick and breaks a window only to be caught by a good looking neighbor walking his dog.

    Gillian is a take charge kind of woman, she takes no nonsense from her mother and insists she eat, shower, get out of bed, etc. Before you know it her mother leaves on a cruise with a good family friend and unexpected things happen. I found this to be such an enjoyable book, loved Gillian's character and the way her life turns out. 5 out of 5 stars!

    I received a copy of this book free from Christian Review of Books in exchange for an honest review.

    Gillian goes to California to take care of her ailing mother

    only to have her life take a drastic turn. Without a job,

    she begins to see that California is not so bad. Maybe God

    has a new place and new life for her here near her mom

    and sister.
