What an odd read. Mom gave me this book last summer as something to enjoy over a visit to her house. I started it and didn't fall in love, but when the book got lost during our move this fall I somehow really regretted not finishing the story. So when I unpacked a box and it popped up, I was glad... And in the end, it was really a very good story with a heart-warming finish.

I love the way this author creates such interesting characters. You know when you read Lorna Landvik you will get a new and exciting story that captivates you until the end.

This book is centered around a broadway star who goes to babysit her nephew in Minnesota for a month while her (twin) sister and her husband go to Italy for a month.
