    This was my first book by Sally Hepworth, and I was instantly struck by her character development. The characters were the center of this book, and each had a life struggle to battle. There were a number of issues tying these sympathetic women together, and isn't that how life is? I can't think of a...

    3★A single mother with a life threatening illness and no support community of family or friends is at the heart of this story. Where does she, or any person so alone turn for help? A real life event was the author’s inspiration for choosing this topic. Children or not, I believe this is go...

    4 Stars.Is it possible to rely solely on someone else and have it be to both of your detriments? Even if you have the tightest bond imaginable and can't imagine hurting the other? What if, in relying solely on each other, you end up enabling each other's behaviors and realize it a little to late to ...

    This is one of those books with many 'hot-topics' to discuss. Perhaps a 'women's book- group would be best. I'm sure a few 'men' might take to this novel....but my husband wouldn't be one of them. He wonders why I read it. Gotta call a spade a spade: This is definitely 'Women's Fiction'. It seems Ca...
