I loved what I read, for more than one reason. My Mother is ten years older than my step Father, and they have been very happy for forty two years. I wasn’t sure where to leave the comment, but since I didn’t find a place at HC, I came back over here. No matter, I will purchase this book either way. Danny and little Caleb reach out, taking you in from the excerpt, and Lily is already so relatable that I can’t wait to share this with my Mother.

I am hooked! This book looks great and I would love to read more. I was born & raised in New York, so I think I could relate to the setting, as well as to Lily. I would love a copy. Thank you.

Thanks for sharing this preview-this looks like a great summer read with plenty to discuss and I'd love to share it with my bok club:)


I tried my best to open the preview, but it just won't work of my computer! I love your description though and would enjoy reading this book. Could you please send one my way?

Julie E.

I have to admit that at first glance this book didn't seem like my kind of thing . . . but I checked out the Sneak Peek and it really drew me in! Great idea. I'd like to read this.

Ok, I've tried 4 times to load the preview but it is just not working. :( But here's what I can say just from what I've read about the book so far: It's not my usual book fare, but the story is intriguing. I'm trying to broaden my reading spectrum so I'd love to read this one. And of course I'll post a review on my blog as soon as I finish. :)


I've tried for 30 minutes to load the preview - 5 different times! I guess many of us are trying at once? I'll definately be trying later today - the book sounds great. Oops, now I can't get the post to post ...

I would love to have a good book to read in the hammock on Memorial day.

What I've read so far is amazing. The author does a wonderful job of describing the setting. I'm completely drawn in!

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
