    A good book to curl up to

    I bought this book at a used book store. I liked the cover and thought I would give it a try. I really enjoyed it. It kept my interest. It had a great story line with good characters. If you are looking for a good easy read this is for you. It doesn't overdose on the drama.

    New Favorite Book

    I picked this book randomly one day when I was shopping and fell in love with it. It has become one of my favorite books very quickly. The only thing that bothers me is that the story could have been done in five seconds if only the family talked to each other or Lizzy had just asked David about what she had heard. I just had to realize that its true, people are like that. Despite that great read! Ive read it twice in the last 3 months. :)

    When London becomes to overbearing or her troubles overwhelming, sensitive Lizzy Walters enjoys the respite of her rustic home Keeper House where her family has always been welcoming. Lizzy needs the warmth and hugs of her kin after she has lost her ¿big love¿ so she plans to go back as soon as she can escape from the hustle and bustle of London.--------------- However, this time Keeper House seems more foreboding than hospitable as family secrets begin to surface that shake Lizzy. Even more shocking and making Lizzy feel dizzy, he who abandoned her has arrived at her haven. She is not sure she wants to deal with him as his arrival and her family¿s behavior since her return make GOING HOME seem a mistake.------------------ This is an interesting English character study starring a fascinating female who decides a bit of family love is just the cure for her broken heart, but instead receives a horde of woes tossed like grenades from those she expected comfort from. The absorbing story line is somewhat amusing as the Walters seem harmlessly eccentric, but throughout readers will wonder why there is the lack of communication from anyone with Lizzy neither her family members nor her ¿big love¿ who dumped her appear able to simply talk to Lizzy though this reviewer is not sure whey. Still she is an intriguing protagonist struggling with the down side of love.------------- Harriet Klausner
