A lovely read, both heartwarming & heartbreaking -it bought a lump to my throat on more than one occassion!

I think the quote from Sue Monk Kidd on the back cover sums it up perfectly.."An absolutely mesmerizing premise, drawing you deeply & irrevocably into the entangled lives of two families & the devastating secret that shapes them both. Riveting."

10 out of 10

Rarely do I give a book a 10! I loved this: I expected to cry from the start, but only cried in the last third.
Do Paul and Norah ever find out the secret of the "dead" baby - does Phoebe ever manage to make it in the cruel world? Read it and find out!
The crux of the whole story is when Paul says to his Mum: "Our lives could have been so much different."
Well, Paul! so could any of our lives - where we were born; our parents, choices; our schools; our choice (or not) of partner(s); our kids (if any) and so on - the truth is, we've only got one shot at life. Make the most of it, it's not going to perfect - but you don't achieve anything by dwelling on "what might have been" because it so easily "might not have been!"
Fantastic, thank you Plum-crazy, and passing on to my Mum- she'll love it. xx
