really liked it
bookshelves: chick-lit, reviewed

This is the story of Grace Hawkes, a woman who has spent the majority of her life running from painful situations. Her father left her and her siblings when they were young, her mother died when she was 30, and now her father is dying and her 3 siblings need her to become part of the family again. This is a fluffy bit of chick-lit, a genre I don't normally read but this book was funny and sad and kept me turning the pages. There are a lot of characters in this story: the 4 siblings and their significant others, nursing staff, and a step-family from Hell. Ordinarily, I dislike reading books that have a lot of characters to keep straight, but the author was able to introduce them all without getting confusing. There were a couple of tear-jerker scenes and a few surprises, but overall I really liked this book and would recommend it to anyone!
