This is the first of Karen White's books that I have read. All of her characters came to life, and I couldn't put the book down. Wonderful read that makes us think about how our childhood experiences shape our lives, but it doesn't stop there. It shows us that we are responsible for overcoming any obstacles life presents us, and we are responsible for our own happiness.
I have not read a Karen White book that I did not love and this one did not disappoint me.
This book was a good vacation book and kept me entertained until the end, but the main character, Brenna, drove me crazy. I kept wanting her to just say what she was thinking to Pierce instead of keeping it to herself. She collects old war-time letters and the angle about her reading to Pierce's father was interesting. And her sisters were entertaining. The scrapbooking get-togethers made them all seem like such every day people. The story had enough complexity and different angles to make it entertaining and interesting.
Great Read - Could not put this book down
