This is a good book, but take note that the author is British, this is set in England and unless you are extremely familiar with with British terminology, slang, products, etc. you will not 'get' a lot of the humor & won't be able to relate to things she writes about.

I picked this book after I was diagnosed with a heart problem. My daughter is 12 yrs old and I thought about the things I would want to teach her as she grows but I may not be around. This book is not a reference book by any means but it helped me to write down things that I wanted her to know in the future. I cried, laughed, cried and then laughed some more. The book was a little hard to follow at first because it's set in England with English characters. If you don't know the lingo and slang used across the pond it makes understanding some what difficult.

I believe this is Elizabeth's best novel. The diary and letters left by the mother for her daughters are wonderful. There are messages all mothers and daughters could learn from. It was heart warming as to how the book ended with all the sisters finally understanding each other and how they all had different relationships with their mother and step-father.

Loved the beginning and the middle. Seemed like a everyday family dealing with the lose of a mother and a wife. The end however everyone got a little bit to sappy......the sisters all of a sudden were justt to beautiful and the word love was spread around a bit to much. I had to stop and check to see if i was reading the same book. Its a shame.

Did not enjoy this book, even though I am British and did understand the British lingo...understanding it still did not make it funny. The characters were one dimensional, the plot boring and the end all wrapped up in an implausible neat bow. I was expecting this book to have some profound, deep advise from the mother to the daughters, but that was not the case. The mother's letters were a very small part of the book. I didn't care about any of the characters, and couldn't wait to finish.

When an author "grabs me" within the first chapter, I consider the book a good read. This was a GREAT read. Couldn't put it down. Written from a Mother's heart. I highly recommend it.

I went in half-heartedly, but was pleasantly surprised and deeply moved. Have 4 of my own (2girls/2boys) and I understood the book. I was between laughing and tears at the same time throughout the whole book :D... highly recommend.

What a great book! I was afraid it might be rather morbid but it wasn't. It was funny in places and brings a tear to your eye in other parts. There was a lot of truth in it. It leaves you with some things to think about. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
