At times I felt like this book was a conversation between to long and close friends who have walked a similar path in life.

I'm a huge fan of Fiona's novels and her blog entries, which are always very truthful and honest in their reflections of problems and issues we face every day. Reading her novels or her blogs are like taking a dip in a cool lake on a really groggy hot day and feeling a surge of comfort.

I received this book through Goodreads First Reads.
I really enjoyed this book and read it from front to back although you can read it any number of ways - through the seasons or just by randomly picking a week.
I loved the quotes throughout the book and how easy it was to read.
I will be coming back to this book again and again as it is so inspirational.
This book grew on me. Designed to be read over 52 weeks and motivate you to think about your life. Great quotes. I enjoyed the author sharing her personal struggles and inspiring me to think about my own life. Read this one.
