I really enjoyed this book. It is a wonderful story about making your family where you can. I wouldn't call it a page turner but it was very enjoyable to read. I thought she did a great job exploring the pain of Lily however I don't think she went deep enough into the terrors of the mid-60s in the southern US. It was mentioned but was definitely not the focus of the book and may have been taken a little to lightly by the author.

Marianne I really enjoyed that book. Hope you do too! Was nice to see you the other night.

Maryruth Endicott I am enjoying it so far. I have been wanted to read it for a long time and finally got the ebook from the library.
It was really nice to see you last week too. We should have coffee sometime.

Marianne I never got notified of your reply? Weird. I'd love to go for coffee sometime. The movie based on the book was really good too. But I cried thru the whole thing. Worth watching.
