An absolutely wonderful book. Bess Aldrich has such a way of weaving her novels into life's lessons. I have never been dissapointed in any book of hers. This is no exception. A very good story of a young woman coming into her own, and learning life's lessons along the way; realizing that the following of a dream can have some unexpected ends.
