The best word to describe this book is: gentle. A gentle story with gentle characters and a gentle ending.
Primary characters: Miriam the Phone Psychic; her pharmacist husband Rory; their teen daughter Cara; Miriam's deceased bubbe (grandmother) who also had the psychic gift/curse.
Cara is embarrassed by her mother's abilities & job. Miriam worries about the family's finances. Rory doesn't trust Miriam's abilities. Most problems are resolved when Something Happens.
Good ending with Miriam getting the blessings of people who love and loved her. Many minor characters (including some not-gentle, not-nice ones) and subplots add depth and interest to the story.
The person who sent it said, "It wasn't my cup of tea." I wasn't sure it would be for me, either. I read the first few pages. Then a few more. Then some from the middle. Then some toward the end. Then the whole thing front-to-back. In one day.
It's not paranormal or romance or mystery. It's just a nice story.
