really liked it
Recommended for: Anyone who likes a love story tinged with sadness

Anyone who knows me knows that I'm not a "real-life" love story kind of reader. But I decided to give this book a chance for a variety of reasons, and wound up loving it. The premise is rather depressing - it's about a man trying to deal with the tragic and sudden death of his wife - but it quickly became a combination love story/story about conflict between mother and daughter that had you rooting for all parties involved. It was also a stark reminder that people always have secrets, and we don't always know people as well as we think we do. Even seemingly perfect people have a past, even if they don't share it.

And if the twist was a little obvious, who cares? I don't know that she was trying to hide it all that hard.

It was still a great book.
