Once again Lorna Landvik has come through with a great story. While probably not my favorite - that would be a tie between 'Patty Jane's House of Curl' and 'Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons'. But the character development and growth in this book are very well written. Two main characters start the story in high school and continue onto middle age. The paths they choose and the choices they make run parallel in the book. The story is believable and in Landviks style humorous while also making a point. I cannot say enough about the books Lorna Landvik has written and I'm waiting for the next. Carol
