    A wonderful and enjoyable novelGrace Greene uses a slightly different writing style with this novel that works extremely well The reader begins the novel and has hit the end without realizing it Such wonderful and realistic characters bring this novel to life The sheriff, who has some helpful and not so helpful qualities, as far as Libbie is concerned The lawn and garden owner, Jim, who always is there when Libbie needs help with her garden projects, but also with life The cousin who has an opinion and thought about almost anything, good or bad, and many others She inherits a dog, and an elderly neighbor And finds ways to ad...

    I loved this book Libbie, the main character, at first makes you wonder if she is totally compus mentis Then, as the book progresses, you find yourself totally at ease with the wiring in her brain that differs from most people Libbie sees herself as odd, and not especially likeable, but given her childhood, you like her all the for her quirks Libbie is a reclusive, independently wealthy women who can live and go anywhere, but she chooses, on a whim, a fairly isolated estate in Virginia It has the added benefit of being hours closer to her only close friend, her cousin Liz The women s fathers were twins who both named their daughters, born weeks apart, after their wealthy mother to remain in her good graces Where Liz was brought up in an intact family, Libbie s parents died when she was five and she was sent to live with the grandmother Despite her own efforts to remain solitary, Libbie s life changes and soon she has a few friends, she becomes closer with Liz s children, and there is even romance, though she tries to resist that entanglement.As with Greene s The Memory of Butterflies, there are secrets that are kept until they hav...

    Better story than i expectedI really liked the way the author handled the mental illlnesses that were present in the story The treatment the main character received from her family was not the best but it happens There is a sequel to this book but this book stands alone.

    I enjoyed the story and the characters well enough to want to read the sequel Libbie isn t what I call an especially likable character, but she portrays a person with emotional issues very well I certainly felt sympathy for her and applauded her efforts to have better control of her life I thought she d be a lot healthier without her cousin and aunt around to make her feel worthless I didn t like those two at all Nobody can mess you up like your family, and that s very true for Libbie The kids were great, though, and Joyce is wonderful.This book misses five stars for a couple of reasons It wasn t edited well Too many sentences have punctuation issues mostly missing and or misplaced commas There are some poorly worded sentences that are confusing And the narration switches from third person to first person and back to third again in several chapters The other reason is the ending L...
