    Perfect Rainy Day Book

    This is a light read that made me smile and touched on relationship issues that are relevant to us all.

    Uniquely Hilarious

    I'd read and enjoyed Elinor Lipman before ('Isabel's Bed' and 'The Inn at Lake Devine') but still was unprepared for this one. The premise is completely original and the characters are as funny as they are true-to-life. April Epner has always been content with her life and with her adoptive parents, never feeling the inclination to search for her birth mother. But then Bernice Graverman (aka 'Bernice G!', a larger-than-life TV personality) turns up and announces that she is April's birth mother -- and April's well-ordered existence is turned upside down. The relationship April and Bernice forge together is by turns harrowing and hilarious, but is definitely never dull. This is my favorite Elinor Lipman novel yet, and I can't wait to read the rest of her work!

    Really funny

    By chance, I was looking for another writer in the L section at Barnes & Noble, happened upon Then She Found Me, and was hooked immediatley. A great story about a larger than life birth mother who decides, some 35 years later, to finally invade her daughter's life. Great premise, characters and wit. I read the book in two days, then ran back to B&N and picked up other books by Lipman--Isabel's Bed, The Inn at Lake Devine and The Way Men Act. A wonderful writer who hasn't received the credit she deserves.

    A story of a mother who gave her daughter up for adoption then went on to become a local TV celeb, this story has a few developed characters, the story did not peak at any point making this book a bland read. There is humor which saves the story.
    It's a light, fun read - if that is what you are looking for. Our book group loves this author's other books, this one not so much.

    A must read: I was hooked at the 2nd Sentence!

    I admit I was forced into reading this book as part of an assignment for Engligh Lit; otherwise, I would have never picked up this book. After reading just the first paragraph, I was hooked! Elinor Lipman does a fantastic job making you feel like you are right there with the characters. I almost felt like I was invading in on a private conversation. Her imagery of words are intoxicating!
    Beware that the movie is a complete opposite of the book! So if you have to write a paper -- writters beware and read the book!

    Light and romantic book

    I watched the dvd before purchasing the book, and the movie is completely different from the book. I enjoyed both, but the movie was more touching and emotional. I kept picturing Helen Hunt and Bette Midler, but was wondering who would have played the part of Dwight from the book.

    Not even close to the movie version

    I purchased this book after seeing a preview for the Helen Hunt movie based on this book. This book is nothing like the movie, other than the fact that the biological mother finds the daughter that she gave up 30-some years earlier. I was disappointed because the story line of the movie was much different, and funnier. The book is okay. The characters are a bit annoying and not very likable. It gave me a few laughs, but I would not recommend it.
