I was expecting at least an ok read since the author has cowritten some wonderful tv shows (Designing Women, Evening Shade, Gilmore Girls), but it reallly blew past my expectations! This book is funny, and intelligent. The characters are complex, real and interesting. Highly recommended!
I loved this book! After reading it I felt that I knew all the characters personally. The town of Paris also reminded me of the small Texas town that I grew up in. I would definitely recommend it to others.
I cannot believe anyone would give this story less than 5 stars. I have enjoyed every second of the 13+ hours I spent listening to this audiobook. It is a story of love between friends and their complicated relationships that span many generations. I wish the author had written more books.
I was not expecting much from this book - just wanted a light airplane read. I have ended up crying in my car on my lunch hour while finishing it because I couldn't bear the thought of waiting until I got home from work to see what happened to everyone!
I've had this for awhile and just got around to reading it. I enjoyed it far more than I suspected I would! Although there are many characters, they are well written and developed. The events aren't extraordinary, and although it is a bit left wing tolerance preachy, it takes these events and makes them greater than their parts.
