This book was heart warming, sad, and simply beautiful. I am always surprised when a female author taps in to the mind of young men, and in this case, brothers of varying ages and desires. I laughed, cried, and read the book in just one day. It is a treasure.

I didn't like this as much as Jewelll's other books- but it was still a good read. I think I am not entranced with the "magical stranger" plot device, even when used well as it is here.

I made one attempt to get into this book. So far, nothing grabbed my attention. Shall try again, might have a nice surprise.
