A tightly paced story that is hard to put down...Rice's message remains a powerful one: the strength of precious family ties can ultimately set things right.

Rice uses 8 main characters to look at how we struggle with emotions which hold us together at the same time that they push us apart. Terminal illness is the catalyst to explore how we behave when those we love either don't live up to expectations, or exceed our expectations. This book is an emotional roller coaster while it entertains and satisfies. If you've ever lost a loved one you might recognize yourself here. Although medical details seem unlikely, the relationships ring true. I really enjoyed this book and am about to go look for more by Luanne Rice.

I found this book extremely sad. It is about a woman who has had cancer and starts to rebuild her life. She falls in love but her future is very uncertain.

Really good story. Very emotional, made me cry, but I am glad I listened to it.

Typical 'escape from societal restraints and recover amidst nature' romance, yet it manages to connect its characters to me. There are characters that make you want to blame for everything that is wrong, but you can't, because they try their best to make things work.

Truly an emotional and touching book. I read it in one sitting. Death is always lurking in the future, but knowing and accepting it as the inevitable is what allows us to appreciate life, and everything that it brings, that much more.

An excellent story of love and family ties. Very sad in some parts, but the ending brought closure. It was hard to put down even thru my tears.

This is the first Luanne Rice book I have read. What a beautiful story. This author knows how to make you fall in love with the characters right from the beginning. This is a beautiful story of finding your way back home. It is a story of love and family and learning to live life to the fullest because you never know what tomorrow may bring. Just lovely!
