really liked it
bookshelves: 2011

I enjoyed this book, it was my waiting book(appts, kids stuff, etc.) It took be a bit to read because of that, but every time I picked it up I was right back in the pink house or in the fields gathering honey. The story of loss and grief was heart breaking, but the love that she found in the pink house made it all OK. The relationships between the women and Mary was interesting and calming at the same time. Lily needed a mother and she found several willing to take that role on. This is the story of mothers and daughters and I really enjoyed it.
