Reading this book made me think about what it would be like to live in a small town. It made me think about how family may want what is best for you but what they want may not really be in your best interest. It made me feel and care and wonder … and I enjoyed the story. It was a book of choices and change and finding love in unexpected places. — Cathy G., Netgalley reviewer
What Rosie finds out is that if you love somebody you have more protection and safety than having material things brings you. She has a hard decision at the end, but she makes the right choice. This was a good read. — Joanne H, bookseller, Netgalley reviewer
I enjoyed this book … [it] is about endings and new beginnings, and having to recreate a new life for yourself following divorce. — Henny Penny, Goodreads reviewer
Charming novel. Characters were real and grew. Could totally relate to the two sisters' relationship. Depth of material, life, was explored beyond the superficial but not to tedium. Thoroughly enjoyed; worth rereading. I lived a piece of Rosie's life. Very well-written. — J. Sanmartin, Goodreads reviewer
This book was interesting. The story was exciting and kept me guessing what will Rosie do next. — Gladys Mills, Goodreads reviewer
Well worth reading, great from start to finish. Characters will keep you reading as you follow great story. — Rose Edwards, Amazon review
