I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this chick lit. My favourite quote is not from the text itself but from the acknowledgements: "If you write nonfiction, you have to fight to prove every fact, but if you write fiction, everyone assumes it's all true." Kittle wrote this after going through a divorce and although she claims that the characters are pure fiction, I'm sure that may have something to do with the powerful feel of the emotions coursing through the pages of this novel. I enjoy finding the title in the text while reading a book and in this one I was particularly touched by the image of the animals literally going to church to be blessed and the comparison of Cam going to her church in her barn where the animals blessed her. How clever!
