This is a good story that is set in a small town and follows the lives of six characters in the town whose stories interlink. Some of them were in Friendship Bread this authors first novel. I enjoyed the book and read it over about 18 hours . Darien Gee covers topics such as dementia , adoption from China, family relationships and loss of loved one but does it with a light touch keeping the stories flowing well. A good read I am happy to recommend this author. Lynne
