It was just ok. I've never read this author before. Not a bad intro. I just didn't have any sympathy for the characters. I didn't "feel" anything for them and what they were going through.

This book had so much promise. The first few chapters were great but towards the middle it really dropped off and I couldn't even make it to the end. I found myself becoming very bored with it.

I didn't really see the point in visiting the boys "grandfather" as he never even knew he existed. I think it was just the "grandmothers" way of trying to see her old flame again.

I couldn't recommend this book.

Allyson Cole's journey to find the father of her child and maybe find the me she used to be and maybe still is. It is about a woman's self-discovery and you will not be able to put it down.

Excellent story -- 16 yr old Allyson places her newborn for adoption and lives with the doubts and longing. At age 51 her unknown 16 yr old grandson shows up on her doorstep. That begins a journey of discovery for Allyson, her grandson and eventually her once teenage boyfriend. Well-crafted and believable story with sensitivity, self-discovery, humor and compassion.

A really good book about a woman who finally faces her past, the decisions she made, so that she can live in the present, and look forward to the future.
