Yes, it's timeless. The character and story are engaging. I laughed out loud, cried, and got lost in the stories of the three main characters.
My favorite was Odette and her Mama...Odette's a strong, opinionated woman with no pretenses about who she is and what she's about. Also, her relationship with her mother in the story made me feel comforted that those we love are always with us. Her Mama was a hoot!
Never heard these narrators before but they were great, the guys sounded like guys and the women like women.
There were many memorable parts - two especially stood out, the one that made me cry like a baby was when Odette tells James her husband her prognosis and the other made me crack up at 3:30 in the morning (waking my husband), when Odette and her Mama go back to her childhood home to get the "medical relief" her mother was an expert in. Her Mama was a hilarious in that scene!
The ending had several twists which were a pleasant surprises. The only downside was after all the great twists to tie up loose ends, the author prolonged the close of the story. Otherwise I'm so sad I finished the story so quickly...a good story is really hard to find. I can't wait for the author's next book!
