Enjoyable but not of my favorites.I found the story not as compelling as the others, and the dialogue drove me batty. Way too many exclamation points etc. Still a great author but this one lacked something the others had. Story about a mom rasing two daughters and the choice to change all of their lives with a big move to the country. Loved the gang at the restaraunt and her sister Mimi who enriched her life so much.I love Dorethea Benton Frank, and look so forward to her new books. I rush out and buy them in hardcover and read them like a treat.I couldnt give it any fewer stars out of pure loyalty to her and her work, And am excited to see if she will come out with another book and Wow me again.
