Charming and honest (and hilarious in parts) story of a woman, transplant from a city to a rural area, who realizes that there is something missing from her life: a child. Might be an especially good read for parents of children adopted from overseas. Perhaps because much of the book does deal with trying to conceive, trying to find a child, my wife liked the book better than I did, but Laskas speaks to the heart of any human who has loved another.

What may I say that the other reviewers haven't mentioned?

I purchased The Exact Same Moon: Fifty Acres and a Family after reading Mrs. Laskas first installment Fifty Acres and a Poodle, which I would recommend reading first. After the author has established herself at Sweet Valley Farm she decides she wants more in life. Namely, a child. She and her husband Alex try to conceive, but they have no luck. They finally decide to adopt a child from China. I believe that many women will identify with this story & all the emotions Mrs. Laskas experiences.

While this is a charming and enjoyable read, I preferred 50 Acres and a Poodle. This book felt a little forced to me. Obviously, this one wasn't as carefree and funny, as it dealt with more serious issues. It's still a great book and one I'd still recommend.

I really like this author and I really loved this book. I keep telling all of my friends to read it, but it is kind of hard to find in local bookstores and libraries. But I've seen it for sale on Amazon.
