This was a really touching book, because it wasn't just about the hero and the heroine, but also her extended family. It tackles some difficult issues, such as her mother's health and a friend's alcoholism, with delicacy and compassion. Not a lighthearted book at times, but very uplifting. Definitely a keeper!
