My mother and I both read this book, and we both believe that this Rebeca Wells novel deserves either a theatrical film or a Netfilx series/film. Really moving, really beautiful

Definitely not as good as the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood books. This book started out as a real page-turner but, to me, seemed to lose something as the title character got older. Not a bad book but I was disappointed. Oh well!

I wasn't sure what to expect and was pleased with what was delivered. Rebecca Wells has a wonderful gift for making her characters so real and well rounded.
