    Set partly in London and partly in America, this story follows the fortunes of a small group of the young and the single. They are the children of '60s swingers. Their lives are blighted by indecision and too many choices with too little time.

    Overall

    There are too many characters and the writer never develops the story of any of them deeply enough that you feel you know them. The southerners are portrayed as flakey and superficial and the british characters are annoying and cold. The narrater incorrectly pronounced "Edisto", an island in South Carolina, several times. The story skips around and leaves you wondering if you missed parts of it. The best thing about this book is Audible's description.

    Laugh-out-loud funny and deeply touching, Beth Hoffman's sparkling debut is, as Kristin Hannah says, "packed full of Southern charm, strong women, wacky humor, and good old-fashioned heart." It is a novel that explores the indomitable strengths of female friendship and gives us the story of a young girl who loses one mother and finds many others.

    Overall

    I was hoping for an entertaining, light-hearted story, and that's exactly what I got! There are some dark aspects concerning the child's past, but all in all, this is a pleasant story with a happy ending, just as I expected.
