Somehow this book migrated from its "interesting spot" into The Black Harp, an Irish-themed pub in Featherston Street where it joined a meet-up / social gathering to introduce a travelling BookCrosser, Sally906 from Darwin. She and her husband are travelling in NZ at present with no space/weight for extra books so despite my resolution not to collect anything more than the two that Sally brought across for me I gathered up this one.

Great evening. As well as the travellers we had Lizzie-P with her spouse -newly joined Techshed-, EdwardStreet, DiscoveryLover, me and my spouse MrFan, not a BC-er.

Not my usual sort of book but then that is what BookCrossing has done for me, introducing me to genre that I'd otherwise not pick from.
Really enjoyed the book; liked the characters and thought that the author handled the scenes with and language of children very well.

It was interesting how much influence the early childhood years of Harry and Gina had on the separate ways each dealt with Harry's initial lapse.
Many personal feelings were aroused as I read, and a few tears shed along the way.

A nice lightweight book to pop in my suitcase for Adelaide.

Picked up at the book swap at the Adelaide Bookcrossing Convention. Thanks for sharing.

Actually I grabbed this one off the swap table after listening to littlemaeve speak so passionately about it.

I really enjoyed this book on so many different levels. So many times I came close to crying, lumps in the throat kind of stuff. Heart wrenching. I just wanted to reach out and hug Pat so many times. I enjoyed the fact that there were two father and son stories being played out. The story in general appealed to me on many levels. I am so glad I was able to read this after hearing Claire speak so passionately about it. I am rating it 9 out of 10.

Received today from sarahbear with another surprise book. Will read next when I finish Atlantis.

An enjoyable read but I was a bit let down at the end when he went back to his mother. An honest and heartfelt book - parenting isn't easy is it!!

Hm, just finished this last night and not sure what to think. I liked the writing style and I felt for the characters, but somehow there were things missing for me. Maybe it's because I expect all divorces to have some sort of similarity with my parents'. It just didn't seem realistic from that point of view. I also didn't like the ending much, because the whole book was so true to life and then the ending reminded me of 1980's Hollywood.
Having said all that, I would still recommend it and thought it was a nice read. Pming freelunch now. Thank you for sharing!

I just finished reading this and thoroughly enjoyed it. Someone above mentioned the "Hollywood Ending" which was a bit jarring, but I guess life can work out that way sometimes. I've already tracked down another copy for my wife to read (something I seem to be doing with most of the bookring books that pass through my hands)

to be sent on to livrecache by the end of the week.

Received today, thank you freelunch. Australia Post arrived at my place after 7pm with with your package of books, plus another. Either they think I am very important, or the organisation has lifted its game somewhat.

Thanks for sharing, sarahbear -- I already have one of your rings in my possession. I will be quick, I will be quick . . .

Oh, this one's a ray. No pressure. Fantastic!
