Every now an then, I have the chance to read a book that just takes me away, lets me fall in love with the characters, and lets me enjoy a part of a life that I don't get to experience right now. I really fell in love with this book and all of the characters.
I am an avid reader, and I have read books that have been okay, mediocare, etc. but every so often a book comes along that I fall in love, it has something to say to me, and I learn something.
I put this book on the top of my list of VERY FAVORITE BOOKS. It just swept me off my feet.
Since I am a widow, and have had a hard time of letting somethings go in my life, I could absolutely understand where Gemma was coming from. Chase was the love of her life, and I could feel how torn she was between Ben and Chase. I could also understand how she felt that she was being disloyal to Chase by loving Ben.
I got a kick out of Rocco and Nonna. They were cute. I laughed out loud when Ben walked in on Muffie and Livvie after coming back from town. I could understand the horror of seeing Muffie's green hair. Having raised a daughter I know what goes thourgh the mind of a teenager and preteen.
Maggie was wonderful----She had just the right of color to be eccentric.
Anyone wonder if there ever was a Mr. Donati????? Who care's it was a great story. I hope Elizabeth Adler writes a sequel because I sure would like to know whtat happens to Ben, Gemma, Muffie, Livvie, Rocco, and Nonna.....Would you?????
IF ANY ONE HAS A COPY OF IT, IN MY MIND IT'S A KEEPER!!!!!
