I have never read anything by Eileen Goudge before and after reading about this book in People Magazine I decided it interested me enough to purchase the book. I thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end and having just recently lost my father it deeply touched my soul. This is an easy, fast read which will captivate you from beginning to end and will not want to put down. I am now looking for more books written by this amazing author!

DID NOT READ THE WHOLE BOOK

Did not like the book. Was impressed by the cover and inside flap covers detailing information about the book, but did not come to fruition. So returned the book.

    A Good, Sweet Story to Escape With

    I have to admit, this is not a typical book that I like to pick up and read. But for some reason, I was in the mood for something nice, and well, this is definitely a story that is sweet and touching and to be quite honest, is a story that I could see developed into a great movie. Told from the perspective of two daughters who come across their mother's diary of the time when she had two men to choose for marriage, it is a touching and feel good story that will tug at your heartstrings. A nice book for rainy days, and it has a couple of really good twists that surprise you.

    Quick read with a twist

    I read this book for book club, and it was a fast read. I didn't like the back and forth between the past and present stories and thought it was distracting from the story. It was fun and interesting to read about life with small town gossip and how reputation and behavior were such important traits. I liked the twist at the end, but near the end, the book started to get predictable. It was still a good story though.

    A NICE LIGHT READ WITH A TWIST AT THE END!

    I enjoyed reading this for book club and especially liked the twist at the end. That really made it for me. This book takes place in the 50's in a small town with small town gossip alive and well. It's about a woman who is popular, beautiful and has dated the most handsome gentleman through high school. It is expected she will marry him one day except an old childhood friend blows back in town and lights a fire within her!! Great book to take to the beach.

    A good book to take you away from your every day hectic life.

    I thought the book was well written and held my interest to the end.
