Picked this up off my Mt TBR this morning and am halfway through already! Have a feeling this will be moving along quickly!

I simply love Alice Hoffman books. Her writing style is wonderful. The characters and their story pull you right in and before you know it you feel like you are reading about some good friends who live down the street. I found it to be true with this one as well.

I felt for Vonny, her struggles and her love for her husband and child. I thought the neighbor Elizabeth Remmy was a lovely older woman with insight that she seemed to know what people in her life needed, at just the right moment. Her daughter, Laura, although seemingly selfish appeared to have a 'ah-ha moment' about her mother toward the end of the story. Jody, the teen finding herself is all I will say on this topic.

It was a very quick read for me as I read it in only two sittings...but then again, I can never put down a Hoffman book! =)

Thank you for taking the time to look up bookcrossing and my journal entry. It would be great if you could leave a journal entry on the book. I'd love to know what path the book takes once it leaves me, but it is not necessary. There is no obligation. If you decide to join bookcrossing that would be great but you can also leave anonymous entries as well.

Like you, I was once left sitting in an ER waiting room. I was there for 13.5 hours with nothing to read but two Cosmo Magazines from the 1990's. I'd forgotten how painful 90's fashion could be. It was true heck and I do not wish it on anyone else. So now I leave books in the ER room in the hopes that I can alleviate someone else's suffering while they wait.

Enjoy the book. It is yours to do what you want. You may keep it or release it back into the wild for someone else to find.

Happy Reading!
