Slowly people start moving in to the house, filling it with noise again, with laughter, and with tears. There is Daniel, recently divorced and a father of two girls, who is struggling to find out who he really is, and Daff, the single mother of a truculent teenager who blames her unreservedly for the divorce. As the house comes alive again, Nan finds her family extending. Her son comes home for the summer, and then an unexpected visitor throws all their lives upside down.

The unexpected twist at the end.
Nan, I love her wisdom and calmness.
I love Cassandra Campbell's voice, she distinguishes each character so good. Hearing the voice helps create a visual.
I can't think of one.
I love Jane Greene’s books. Yes, this one is very different from most. There were several true to life situations in this book. This could be in the inspiration / motivation relationship category. Lesson learned “Things always have a habit of working out in life the way they are meant to. We must learn to just sit back and relax; things WILL work out according to the UNIVERSE.
This was my first Jane Green....I am pleasantly surprised. Chick lit AND a little suspense! I am definitely a fan!
While this book is well written, I found it (overall) to be very...sad. The breakup and heartache of marriages and relationships falling apart was actually quite depressing, and the ending (very neatly put together) seemed to border on ridiculous. Jane Green has written much better books than this one!
