(I just want to note that I am not being paid in any way at this time for my reviews. I mainly get books to read from my local public library. Occasionally I get picked to receive an Advanced Reader Copy from LibraryThing, in exchange for a review. That is it at this time.)
Sometimes I have trouble getting into fiction that is intended for "adults" that is not supposed to be full of humor. This was was not full of humor, but indeed, I had trouble putting this book down. At the gym I, in fact, opted to walk on the treadmill so that I could keep reading! (This was a week ago.)
Libby Moran's husband died suddenly a few years ago in a car accident after picking up their daughter Abby. Abby's leg was crushed at age four in the same accident, and now at age seven, she still has a small limp. Libby worries about her quite a bit. Her younger child, Tank, doesn't remember his father at all. Libby moved back in with her mother after discovering the financial mess her husband had them in (he cashed in his life insurance for an investment at some point.) She and her mother don't get along very well. Her mother has been in search of something her whole life, but has no idea what that may be. Libby finally receives a letter from her aunt Jean, inviting her and the children to come live and work on her goat farm. Libby accepts, and discovers a whole new life.
I highly recommend this book!
