At the age of ten, Liza Barton shot her mother in their New Jersey home while trying to protect her from her violent stepfather. Despite her stepfather's claim that the shooting was a deliberate act, the Juvenile Court ruled the death an accident. Trying to erase every trace of Liza's past, her adoptive parents changed Liza's name to Celia. At the age of 28, she married a 60 year-old widower, and they had a son. Before their marriage, Celia confided the secret of her earlier life.

I’m sorry but this was the most elementary and predictable book ever. It felt like Shirley Temple was reading to me. There was 1 small twist and the end but besides that it was just bad.

Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

I absolutely love this book. I would literally laugh out loud in my car. I don't know how anyone can give this book anything less than 4 stars. For me it was 5!!

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance.

I just love this book. I've shared it often. At first I thought I wouldn't be able to handle it but I kept listening and so glad I did. Great ending too!
