Great

I read this book in a few hours it had me turning pages so fast to see what happened next. I think I stopped breathing a few time in between pages.

    Overall good reading. Well thought out.

    I enjoyed this book on a trip to Denver while travelling on the train. There were times when I was somewhat bored by the read but mostly was entertained by the ending of the book and the characters referenced. It seems like the book could have given a bit more but it doesn't offend the casual reader so I feel it is better than the average book out there now.

    Truly Inspring, Interesting and Captivating

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The main character was so inspiring in what she was trying to accomplish with the Circus and how she influenced the lives of the young mothers. It made me want to go out and create something positive for young sisters and the brothers too. I enjoyed the characters of the two sisters, they reminded me of the Delaney Sisters. Truly a good read for young and old.

    similar to Crazy

    Pearl has done it again. She brings to life Ava's sister from her previous novel to discuss her journey from grieving widow to dating and finding love again. She even tells about the other characters and their growth in the small town of Idlewild. Its a good book.

    A Good Summer Read

    I thought this book was very well written with a cast of interesting characters, witty on-liners, and cleaver dialog. Cleage's writing style is truly enlightening and inspiring ¿ she focuses on ¿life issues¿ like self-love/acceptance, courage/inner strength, and self reliance ¿ delivering messages through the scenarios and characters in Idlewild. Although I would have liked her to have deeper defined the concept of the ¿free woman¿ and the shared more background of some of the supporting characters, like the Lattimores, Sister, and the twins¿but perhaps that¿s for another book. Overall, it was a great summer read with a happy ending. I enjoyed it and look forward to her next release.
