What a delightful story. Great characters, great dialogue (I loved every scene that had Linny in it), great book.
Thank goodness this book took a turn. I was worried when Clare called her father that Cornelia was in love with a man who would treat his daughter like THAT and ignore his daughter’s plea for help like THAT. Not that I was crazy about the turn that the book took. As Linny said, the situation was not without its complications, and I cannot help but think of Christmases and reunions to come!! Awkward.
Vivianna’s story was heartbreaking. You hated her and wanted her to go away but you were relieved when she made her way back. I think that she found her way back a little fast — a little too convenient, a little too neat and tidy for a person who has a problem that is never neat or tidy.
