The book had a few funny and touching moments, but I thought it was a little cookie cutter...with "green" frosting. Just a bit too predictable. It does have a David & Goliath, root for the underdog kind of feel, though, and I'm a sucker for that. And it has owls in it, which I love. But honestly, they are baaaarely described. This kind of book is not really my favorite genre. I like a good mystery, but the reader knows too much of the mystery from the beginning in this book. I didn't think the reveals about the barefoot running boy were satisfying enough, nor the reveals about Mother Paula's Pancake House. Didn't love it; didn't hate it; just liked it.
