    Story

    Bernadette Fox is notorious. To Elgie Branch, a Microsoft wunderkind, she's his hilarious, volatile, talented, troubled wife. To fellow mothers at the school gate, she's a menace. To design experts, she's a revolutionary architect. And to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend, and quite simply, mum. Then Bernadette disappears. And Bee must take a trip to the end of the earth to find her. Where'd You Go, Bernadette is a compulsively readable, irresistibly written, deeply touching novel.

    Story
    What did you like best about this story?

    The book is written in great and intellectual way. The characters are interesting. They develop through the story. I didn't expcet the transformations that some of them went through. I like to be surprised like that when reading a book. I like the way the main character is portrayed as having flaws of her own in spite of arguably being the "good guy" in the story. A lot humorous moments through out the book, but also more sad ones, especially those related to the illness of the main character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both perhaps, bust mostly laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    I absolutely recommend this book, which is written by an intelligent author.

    Story
    (2307)

    From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend 's Manhattan apartment. And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.

    Joan says: "Good author and good narrator"
    "Too predictable for me personally."
