I liked the conflict in this book, though I may be a bit biased as the characters are similar to my husband and I. My biggest complaint is the author sort of beats you over the head with their issues in case you didn't get it. Overall, though, the story is well-developed and believable.

This was a great book!! To be honest, it felt like the author knew my story. It starts out with an adopted daughter who finds her birth mother, (same here) learns she has a sister, (same here) and a niece. (same here!) I'm not sure if I liked this book because I could relate to how Lisa felt or if it was just written really good. Probably both.

This was heavy on exposition which wasn't overly engaging. I skimmed ahead however the resolution of what was happening with the child in this book was a bit disappointing as it was not what I expected. It felt like the child was merely a plot device in the end.

This book promised much but was such a disappointment. Basic emotions, Mary Poppins type characterisation, and little conflict. I am still sugar-shocked.

I fell in love with reading at a very early age, mostly because my mother was a school teacher and she insisted that my sisters and I be able to read really well. It wasn't until a career change that I was able to embrace my joy of writing. I'm happiest when I'm writing. I will always write. I can't help myself. The stories in my head have to reach the page, regardless of how commercial or marketa ...more
