Loved this book. Great characters and an intriguing storyline. Very well written. I will definitely be looking for more books by this author. Southern type book but not the typical formula type. Was sorry when it ended, I wanted to go on reading.

This is a gem of a novel. Although it is accurately listed as a "Southern novel", it is not that sappy, cliche-driven story that is often portrayed as "Southern". Hoffman is a master story-teller as well as a gifted writer. There are sentences to savor on every page. I can't wait to read her first novel and will look forward to anything she puts on paper!

Loved this book. There are reasons that things are happening in Teddi life. From her brother, Josh who she keeps looking for, the secrets that are finally answered and the love that she has been waiting for. Beth Hoffman is a one of a kind author.

I liked this book and the characters. The mother was not a happy person, but we all make our happiness. I recommend this book to those who like stories about families.

This is a slow gentle story that meanders all over the place. For those who enjoy character over action.

I did not enjoy this book as much as I
did her first novel. It took me a long
time and quite a few chapters to really
get into the book.
