A Very Sweet Read
Date:July 16, 2011
Beautifully written. The book takes you into the life of a young girl who is finding a place for herself in her mothers new marriage, family and home. What a treasure this is for the authors family, as they discover/remember their family's history. The book draws you in immediately and leaves you wanting more!

Wonderful book....a must-read.
Date:January 1, 2011
I just finished reading this book and I want to read it again. It is a poignant, heart-wrenching yet uplifting story. You will be transported to rural Montana in the 1940s. You will feel the hopefulness, yearning and pain as a mother and her child strive to find love and belonging in this sometimes-harsh and unforgiving setting. You will love this book. It is wonderful. My two teenage girls have read it as well. They both loved it and are sharing it with friends.
