I really like Ann Patchett's writing so I enjoyed reading this but the story itself wasn't as gripping as some of her other novels that I've read. Otherwise I would've rated it higher.

3 1/2 stars. A little more violent than I was expecting but pretty entertaining! The reason I didn't give it four stars was because the romance was a little cheesy to me. But overall I enjoyed it and recommend it.

Seneca
“True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.”
Seneca

Marcel Proust
“Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
Marcel Proust

Neal A. Maxwell
“We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count.”
Neal A. Maxwell

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.”
Epicurus

“I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.”
