Recommends it for: Anyone who enjoys a good relationship story.
Recommended to Dawn by: I have read other books by this author.
I do not remember specific details on this book to give an accurate review, but I remember I enjoyed it very much. I first read one of Iris Rainer Dart's books when I read Beaches (the book the movie was based on). She is a good author who has the ability to make you care about the characters you are reading.

Iris Rainer Dart is the author of eight novels, including the much-beloved New York Times bestseller Beaches. The mother of two children, she lives in California with her husband.More about Iris Rainer Dart...
