I'm glad I've read several other Patterson books before this one or I might have never discovered one of the best authors of all time. This book is a cutesy, feel good, "love story" which I normally don't mind but this one was rather annoying. I guess the fact that I don't care for golf didn't help but the main character is so whiny.

Travis hates his job, a job many people would kill for, so when he gets fired he takes $3,000 out of the bank for the entry fee into the senior golf tour and hopes he makes it so he can do what he really wants in life. I'm glad his life is so bad he has the $3,000 to "gamble on". Too bad all of us can't have a miracle of quitting our day jobs to play our favorite sport and get paid an asinine amount to do it. Call me crass, but this book is just too ridiculous to even enjoy. Stick with Patterson's mysteries and skip this silly effort of a book.

This book was out of the norm for Patterson. Short in length, which is good sometimes. More of a love story than a mystery.

Predictable ending, but good story otherwise.

The story is complex with surprises at every turn. I particularly liked Edith Burchill, known as Edie, who is the narrator, because she is so real. The three spinster sisters - Juniper, Saffy and Percy - have a strange, haunted background. Sheltered from life by their isolation in Milderhurst Castle and cherished by a doting wealthy father, they find themselves unable to live the lives they have dreamed with the loves of their lives. Why they cannot do so is what this story is all about. My only concern is that I'm not sure even life could deal any such combination of circumstances which occur again and again and again but this is fiction after all, isn't it?

Great story of family issues that effect everybody in life and how with faith and determination you can do what you put your mind to.
