This was a good multi-generational book. It follows the lives of 4 women and discusses how hard life can be, but that sometimes it's just our perception of life that holds us back. I really liked how the book believed that everything will work out for the best... even if it takes a while.
This was only my third title by Pamela Morsi but it won't be such a long interval until the next one. Letting Go is a treasure not only as a story about 4 generations of women in the setting of San Antonio, TX but for the priceless thought-provoking life lessons that are shared through witty conversations and endearing moments.

It is extremely rare for me to read a book again as there are so many on my 'to read' bookshelf and so many on my 'wish list' to borrow or purchase but I'd definitely enjo
Seriously women's fiction*esque since there wasn't a kiss in the whole book. Amber, the daughter, slept with someone but that was pretty gross. This was sad and hopeful and sensible all at the same time. Bad things happen to good people and whatca gonna do. I guess that was the theme. But underneath it all was a core of goodness and caring, with a few sprinkes of fairy-godmother, magic dust too. Everyone ends up with something more at the end of the book -- hardworking, downtrodden Ellen has a f ...more
I really liked this book. Unlike the fluffy Chick Lit I usually end up reading this had substance. The story was not based on sex or fast paced falling in love. I really liked the characters and thought Morsi created a scene I could visualize in my head.

This was nice book. About 3 women (great-grandmother, mother, daughter) surviving in New Orleans. Good story, happy ending, but not sappy. I'd never read this author before; I would read another of hers.

It was an okay book. I tend not to like books that have a character in it like Ellen's daughter, Amber. That young woman needed a knock upside the head. Other than that, it was a pretty quick read.
This was a nice diversion from more "serious" fiction. Pamela Morsi's books always have casts of interesting characters and this one didn't dissappoint.
Just too predictably convenient. Men and money solve all their problems. Only one step up from a Harlequin, in my humble opinion.

This was a little drawn out but a good book.
Entertaining easy read. Not too deep.
