have you ever read a book so good that you didn't read anything else for a couple of days just to keep that feeling you get when you read a piece of literary art? This was one of those books for me.
To say I truly enjoyed it would be an understatement.

A moving tale of a lonely old woman with many secrets looking back at her long life and a responsible kind ex-convict and the abandoned baby that connects them together. I didn't care much for the ending but the story is worth reading.

A beautiful, moving, well crafted novel that will leave you pondering the deeper meaning of what "family" means, and how love can grow between the most unlikely people. Savor the descriptions, the prose, and the feeling in every line.

A well crafted story about figuring out what truely are the blessings in your life and finding out where home is. I enjoyed reading this book. There is a lot of sad/unhappy people in this book learning to come to terms with the hand life dealt them, but in the end everything mostly come out alright. There is a fair amount of symbolism in this book, not all of it I comepletely understood, but I enjoyed reading this book.
