Jennifer ~ TarHeelReader This is another one I have coming up, Cheri! Can’t wait for your thoughts!


Dorie  - Traveling Sister :) I have this one coming up also :)

Julie I'm in! You had me at "Newfoundland!"


message 4: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thanks, Jennifer, I think you'll really enjoy this. I haven't read her other book though so I can't compare. Can't wait for you to read this!


message 5: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Dorie, I think you will also enjoy this, it's sad and it's sweet (a different song) but she has this charm that seems to come through even the sad parts.


message 6: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thank you Julie! I've wanted to go to Newfoundland for too long! I hope you love this!

Meredith Love your review, Cheri!

Antoinette Lovely review, Cheri!


message 9: by Julie (new)

Julie Cheri,
I've wanted to go to Newfoundland since I read The Shipping News, and I can't seem to get there, so another book with that setting seems like a fair solution!


message 10: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thank you so much, Meredith!


message 11: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thank you, Antoinette!


message 12: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Julie, I can't really remember what the original reason that prompted my wanting to go there, but it's been longer ago than when The Shipping News came out. I have a friend that lives sorta near Philadelphia that wanted to go there with me a few years ago, but that didn't work out, but one of these days! In the meantime, yes, there are books!


message 13: by Betsy (new)

Betsy Robinson Yum. I loved her Etta and Otto and Russell and James, and I know she is a musician/singer, so your review makes so much sense. I'll mark this to read. Thanks for a great review. I'm so excited that she has a new book.


message 14: by Sara (new)

Sara I will watch for this one. You have intrigued me.


message 15: by Karen (new)

Karen Wonderful review Cheri!


message 16: by Josephine (Jo) (new)

Josephine (Jo) Great review Cheri. I love that song,we used to sing it many years ago in our folk group. x


Jennifer ~ TarHeelReader Oh, this does sound fantastic, Cheri! I cannot wait to read it. Your review is just lovely.


message 18: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thanks so much, Betsy, yes, there is a mention somewhere in the afterword perhaps about her being a musician / singer! I still have to get to Etta and Otto and Russell and James, but I really do look forward to reading it, I might have to move it up a notch or two now. I hope that you enjoy this one as much as your did E&O&R&J!


message 19: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Sara, I think you might enjoy this. It's not an overall light read, but it's very balanced with a lighter side to the every-present view of the loss of a way of life.


message 20: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thanks so much, Karen!


message 21: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thanks, Jo, I love that song, too, it's lovely. It's mentioned a lot in this book, as are other songs, but I still can't get it out of my head! I hope you enjoy this story, as well.


message 22: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thank you, Maddie, you are always so sweet! xo


message 23: by Cheri (new)

Debra Wonderful Review, Cheri!


message 26: by Selena (new)

Selena Great review Cheri!


Dorie  - Traveling Sister :) I have to ask Cheri is this a slow moving book? I know it sounds wonderful and I have it but I have about 3 slow moving books coming up, what are your thoughts?


message 28: by Bianca (new)

Bianca Beautiful review. I've got this one as well, who knows when I'll get to it.


message 29: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thanks so much, Angela, I think you will really enjoy / love this!


message 30: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thank you, Debra!


message 31: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Thank you so much, Selena!


message 32: by Cheri (new)

Cheri Dorie, I didn't find it to be a slow moving, but it is a quieter book, and there's not a lot of "action," a lot of self-reflection in Cora's Canadian parts. I wouldn't pass on this because I think you'll enjoy this, but you might reorganize those three and put two that will break it up if you're worried about it.

Elyse Walters Sounds wonderful Cheri. This is the first I’ve heard of this book - or even seen that gorgeous book cover. It sounds great! Thanks.
I think I’d like it too.

And with our daughter moving - permanently to Canada in August of this year ... my eyes & ears go up about everything Canada these days. Thank you for your lovely seductive review!! 💕
