Once I began to read this novel by Elizabeth Berg, I absolutely couldn't put it down. I finished it in one evening. Elizabeth Berg makes her characters as true to life as your nextdoor neighbor. Elizabeth Berg is a woman who knows the trials and heartache that women can suffer from and learn from and then puts it in writing.

As I told my friend last night when I recommended this book to her...this is not a life changing book, it is a life affirming book. And it is a beautiful read!

This is one of those books that you can't put down! A definite page-turner from the very first chapter. I found myself pulling for Jay, right along with Lainey, her two daughters, and the nurses. The character development throughout the book is wonderful. I really felt like I wanted to meet some of the people in this book! It is truly one of Berg's best!

Wow! What a great book. Less than 50pgs in I was mourning Lainey's loss of everyday life right along with her. She says something at one point about the terrible stories covered in newspaper articles and how they slipped off the page and right into her kitchen. How poingnet. This touching novel by Berg teaches the lesson to never take for granted the normalcy in life. It also portrays the crucial importance of having good friends. Berg captured the simplicity of children, how they were acting out what she couldn't even begin to face. Experiencing this book gave me the urge to hold my husband tight, admire his vitality, 'the arm's I've memorized', and make a cup of coffee for my neighbor who I also have learned not to take for granted. This is a must read!

This story is well written, highly believable, and easy for many people to relate to. The depth of feelings experienced by the coma victim's wife are so intense and so vividly described. The way she deals with her friend and her children while dealing with her husband's situation that has no guaranteed recovery outcome is amazing. Again, Elizabeth Berg has climbed into the soul of her characters and has successfully revealed their innermost feelings.

Like Berg's other books, this one has an uncanny way of pulling you into the character's inner dialogues. This, however, is my favorite of her books so far for its unique portrayals. Everything Berg writes is life-affirming, which pulls me in over and over again. This one made me hug my husband a little tighter before he left for work.

This book is wonderful. It not only represents a wife's love for her husband, but also her love for her friends, family and the fond memories of the past. It celebrates the kindness that can be found in people we don't know who are in the same circumstances as we are. It also shows how emotional support can come from the most unlikely of people or situations. I read this book in one sitting. It is a feel good book and the author takes great detail to make you feel as if you are right there. I felt like I was there with Lainey experiencing everything with her. This is a great book to read when you need your spirits lifted or are just in the mood to curl up with a good book.
