it was amazing
Read in March, 2010

Found this book by accident on the CLPL book club list. Has something for everyone...wildly funny, very touching, great characters...struck me just right. Set in Fort Worth and Scotland it moves fast through a funeral, a trip abroad, a wedding, something illegal and a believable finish. Once I stopped crying I started making plans...Thanks, Becky, for finding this one.

Susan I also loved this book, choosing it because I was on my way to Scotland. As someone who has moved quite a few times, the discussion of where home is really resonated with me.

Jan Polep This book is the reason I went to Scotland, found my cousins, and the houses of my grandparents and where my mom was born. For years I put off that trip because I thought I couldn't handle it emotionally. The book and the trip changed my life. Glad you liked it too.
