I definitely recommend this book. I love how the author weaves the individual stories together into a pleasantly surprising conclusion.

Her writing reminds me of Anne Tyler. My take away is that life is messy and that through the broken pieces melding together to make an imperfect (yet) whole being contentment can be found.

I quite liked this book. THough at times the plot was somewhat predictable and occasionally too seamless for real life, the characters were lovably flawed and funny. I laughed out loud several times, and I felt a real connection to the main female characters. Definitely worth reading, I highly recommend this.

I wasn't too sure about this book at first, but the more I read the more I started to enjoy it. As I got towards the end, I couldn't put it down! I loved the idea that these broken women could come together and make a surrogate family. A story of redemption and family.
