    Absolutely compelling

    I was given this book at Christmas. For two days I proceeded to ignore my children and parents, reading curled up on the couch, on a lawn chair at the beach, and guiltily into the night! The witty dialogue and appealing characters reminded me of Barbara Kingsolver, inviting me into the book right away. But I was unprepared for the haunting and unforgettable characters, the vignettes painted so vividly (like the Easter vigil), the narrative that builds steam like a freight train. At times I felt prickles on my neck as I began to see what was unfolding under the surface of the narrative. What a fascinating world Mockler creates, at once uncannily familiar (aren¿t these my own friends?) and endlessly fascinating, seen through Mockler's keenly observant eyes. Mockler paints her quirky and real characters so vividly, and then page by page delivers to us the uncanny privilege of peering into their very soul. Shoe¿s unexpected and transcendent last hours will always be with me. Mockler is a tender, brave, honest, and magical writer. I can see why Barnes and Noble included her in their Discover New Writers¿ Series. Having had the distinct pleasure of discovering her, I can hardly wait to see what she does next! Bravo, Ms. Mockler!

    A wondrous, moving platter full of life, death, gifts and pears!

    The story is rich in character development, the talent of a new writer whose skill of painting a picture with words is so very evident. It is a book that is simple and elegant and yet mysterious in a haunting sort of way. A great read, good writing and wonderfully touching ending.

    Don't start this book in the evening if you want to get any sleep.

    This is a very well written, thoughtful book that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. The author's use of the English language is like poetry. The plot moves the story and connection with the characters is immediate. You want to know what happened to Shoe. Will Ida ever come out of her shell? Will Moses be okay with Ida? And how does Max fit into the whole picture? This book should come with a warning. Do not start this book late in the evening if you want to get any sleep. Once you start it, it is nearly impossible to put it down. I thoroughly enjoyed every word. I wanted to read straight through to the end, but at the same time I didn't want it to end either. What a conundrum! This is a book I will give to friends and recommend to everyone. I rank this book right up there as one of the best books I have ever read.
