I was expecting a fluffy beach read, but it was so much more. I highly recommend if you want something with a little more substance to read by the pool this summer.

eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Sweet, Touching, and LovelyJuly 15, 2014eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I did not want to put this book down! It is full of warmth, beauty, and love. Although sadness and heartache are also there, they do not win. Through the difficulties, the characters grow stronger. This is written with humor, and with delightfully vivid descriptions. I feel as if I've been to these places, and known these people. I identified with the emotions and felt as if I were part of the story; and I love a happy ending. Lisa Wingate writes beautifully.
