A thoughtfully written book, a bit restrained perhaps. Felt like a first novel. I liked the bit about the teenager's bedroom with the footprints across the ceiling - tempted to try this when redecorating my own kids' bedrooms!
A pleasant book revolving around Laura, who decides to take a break from her family for a couple of weeks. The novel follows her experiences, and those of her family as they learn to do without her for a while.
