We read this book for our Book Club Discussion Group. Almost everyone enjoyed it, but all of us felt it needed some expansion on parts of the story line and character development. We felt there were too many partially answered ?s. I recommend it, but would like to see the author take it more in-depth.

The best word I can think of to describe this fast, easy, emotional read is 'sweet'. More a novella than a novel, this book tells the story in an easy style of an adoptive family's almost accidental collision with the birth mother of the adopted sons. It is humorous and skims across the top of what must be gut-wrenching emotional issues for those who find themselves in similar situations. I enjoyed the read, but was left feeling like nothing had really been either explored in depth, or resolved by the characters in the book.
