This book reminds me of Where The Heart Is... a little corny, with characters you can't help but like, and a story line that just carries the reader away. Like the rest of Landvik's books, the characters are quirky and the plot moves in unexpected directions. Have tissues on hand before the ending!

Wonderful story of Violet Mathers and her wonderful life. Starting out in the Depression with a horrible family and horrible accident Violet's life takes many interesting turns. This book pulled me in even though i initially thought I wouldn't like it.

This book has a cast of characters whose travails and triumphs you'll long remember. It is a tale of love and hope, bigotry and betrayal, loss and discovery---as Violet, who's always considered herself a minor character in her own life story, emerges as a heroine you'll laugh wiuth, cry with, and, most important, cheer for all the way.
