This was a lovely book to savour -- the chapters are short enough to read quickly and then go off and do something else if necessary.

I started this earlier this week and grabbed a few minutes here to read and loved how each chapter unfolded, giving the reader more insight into the cast of characters in this book. I particularly enjoyed Chloe and Oscar's story. This book is full of ups and downs and captures life and love so well.

A nice book. Was a little confusing to me in the beginning. I ended up liking the book pretty well. I even cried at one point. I wouldn't call this an easy ready, but I think it is worth trying.

A great book that tells the stories of many different people in a small community wrapping a tale of love, passion, and angst. It is both heartwarming and bittersweet.
