Pretty interesting premise - hardworking mother's weekly splurge of hope - a single lottery ticket - wins big at $60 million. The book explores what money can - and cannot mean. It was fun following along with Claire and Emma as they go through some initial spending sprees, but ultimately more satisifying to see how Claire, and finally Emma, regain their balance and learn to build a real and meaningful life within the freedom money gives them.
