I really enjoyed this book. It was actually the first book Tyler wrote. She started it while on a trip and accidentally left it at the airport -- it was in with her unclaimed baggage. She retrieved it at least a month later. This story really meant something to me. Touched upon the passage of time and the feeling between familes, the longing for the old days. I feel that myself very often now that my kids are in their teens.

Loved all the other Anny Tyler books, but if I had read this one first, I may not have bought another. The characters and situations were a bit corny.

This book was really a short story. It was only 178 pages long. Can't believe I downloaded it to my Nook and paid $10.76. The story had some interesting moments but did not go anywhere. The publish date on Barnes and Noble website was different than actual publish date...maybe printed date and ebook publish dates are different? Needless to say, I was definitely disappointed and will not download an ebook again unless I first read a downloaded free chapter sample.
