This book has nothing to do with the title, AT ALL. I really don't know why it had this title. There was something at the end, when it referenced this, but other then that, it had nothing to do with each other. This was a typical family drama book, but short and not epic at all. Girl was in long term relationship and left her fiance right before the wedding and ran off and lived a small life in some sort of fishing village were she is now in the process of making a doco that is going nowhere. She comes home for her brother's wedding and he is thinking of doing the same thing she did, leaving his future wife. He is cheating on her with another women who lives near where the Girl lives and they do to see her. He doesn't break it off, but he doesn't talk about a future either. In coming back into the town were their parents live, Girl runs into old fiance and discovers that he has a child with another women, after they broke up and is living in Europe or something. Lots of should-they-shouldn't-they. Do we make the right mistakes in life or the wrong ones? Everything ends up okay in the end. I kind of enjoyed this book. It was short-ish and a not interesting, but not boring story. Just kind of meh, but in a good way.
