What a treat this story was! At first I wasn't sure I would like this story because it sounded like it could be a bit of a downer, but wow, was I surprised at how much I loved it in the end. I wanted to read this novel every chance I could. I thought about the story even when I wasn't able to sit down, relax, and enjoy it. That's a good book...one that preoccupies my thoughts.

I loved how romantic it was on so many levels. Though each character had their own grief to deal with, it wasn't only about their pain. It was about how God uses the unexpected things in our lives to bless us. He took someone like Campbell, who felt alone in the world, and gave her a new family through new friendships and people who also tied her to her mother's history. I loved how the book ended. I totally adored Luke. I didn't want his heart broken any more than his momma did. Man, I adored that man. He was a great hero and I could see how even the hardest of hearts could melt under the warmth in his eyes.

The author did a fantastic job at making me care. She made each character seem like a friend, or at least someone I could easily know. Their happiness and their healing became a primary concern for me as the book veered toward a conclusion. Everything about this book was awesome. It even had a bit of mystery to it when it came to figuring out who her father really was. Great story! It's making my top fiction list for 2012.

    Good, but frustrating

    I really enjoyed this book. It had interesting characters and an interesting story line. I loved Campbell and how strong she was. I kept getting frustrated, though. I feel like Walsh took too long to uncover some secrets. For the first 150 pages or so of this short book, the characters would simply state, "its complicated" and that was that. I kept thinking, am I ever going to find anything out?! I also feel like Walsh made Meghan into a useless character. I kept waiting for Meghan to appear, and I was in disbelief when she didn't come around until the epilogue. Why? Overall, this was a good book and a quick read, even though it made me quite mad at points.

    Good Summer Reading

    It was very familiar of my own teenage carefree summers with my girlfriends. A bit slow in parts.
