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.
I was truly moved by Violet's story. Landvik intertwines import issues with a story of love and life.
A wonderful story! Great characters! I am a Lorna Landvik fan, and this book didn't let me down! Violet, Kjiel, and Austin will be with me forever!
Wonderful, heart-wrenching...couldn't put it down. One of Landvik's best novels.
