    Help Book for empty nester's

    This was very fun-loving very earthy book about a Husband and Wife with very different views of how life should be after your childern move out. <BR/>I also found comfort in knowing that my family is not the only wacky group around. The setting of the UK area was also interesting. I is a novel about Love and friendship.

    A Vintage Trollope Book

    Joanna Trollope has written again of family matters, this time the empty nest syndrome. No one writes better than she about the family's children and pets. In Second Honeymoon there is just the right amount of characters in flux to keep you reading well past midnight to see how they will all fare. It is a beautifully rendered story of love.
