Enjoyable read. I recommend it for anyone considering or going through IVF. Some valuable lessons are learned by everyone in the story.

Another satifying read by one of the queen of "women's" fiction. Angie, whose marriage was seemingly ruined by failing to have a child returns home to mama and sisters who run the family restaurant. After joining in the business she meets a troubled and virtually motherless teen (Lauren) who moves in with Angie and then gets pregnant by her rich boyfriend. This seems like a pretty true to life story except for Lauren's mother. She's just like Tully's mother in Firefly Lane. I find it impossible to accept that any mother who bothered to give birth and keep a child could care so little. Oh well. In this story Angie and Lauren learn that we can all benefit from both receiving and providing a little mothering.

Amazing, amazing book. Absolutely LOVED it. Cried throughout far too much of the book (happy tears!) and I'd definitely recommend it!!

Enjoyed reading this story. Very emotional and predictable story between a woman and a teenage girl. Hannah does a great job in describing feelings of each of the characters.

A great story about a woman who desperately wanted to be a mother and a teenage girl who needed a caring one. Pure Soap Opera but really well done. I very much enjoyed it.
