Sunset Over Chocolate Mountain is a beautiful read. This is a new author for me and i really like Ms. Elderkin. This novel is about Theo, an over weight man who lives alone in the Arizona desert, tending his cactus, his tiny mobile home and feeding himself. Theo is raising Josephine who only remembers the life she has now. She is starting to ask questions and Theo doesn't want to answer about her birth. This story is warm, suspenseful, and has likeable charecters. It also has a dramatic and surprising ending. Good read.
