How sad that Mary Ann Shaffer died before realizing that her book would inspire so many people. I hesitated to read it when I realized it was mostly in correspondence, but my daughter insisted, thank goodness. I was mesmerized and couldn't put the book down. What a beautiful story of finding oneself.
Our Book Divas members loved this book. Each person at the meeting expressed delight with the entire book. Amazing to learn that this is Beth Hoffman's first book. She is a gifted storyteller.
This is the first contemporary by Julia Londond that I've read, although I am a big fan of her English-set historical novels. The writing was very good, but not as good as her historicals. Still, I recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a good romance.
