I'm really not into chick-lit and the down-home, folksy narration this uses should make me really cranky, but every time I started to put this down and walk away I'd think "just a few more pages" until ... a few hours later I found myself at the end. Despite the fact that this is something I think I shouldn't have enjoyed at all, I found myself laughing and crying as I watched Eudora, aka Pea, leave Austin on her quest to find her sister's reincarnated self somewhere in Taos and get sidetracked by the menagerie of people she decides to rescue along the way. It's not so much a story of redemption as it is a story of dealing with grief and (self) forgiveness.

I received a digital ARC of this through NetGalley.
