I love, love, Marie Dunn’s tale of starting over: episodes of country gardens, beautifully stocked fishing ponds, large verandas where you can drink Crown Royal and coke and girl-talk the evening away.
Ms. Dunn was able to depict gorgeous scenes of Springfield Illinois. She has a way with words that magically zaps everything to life—like peeking behind the curtain at the county fair. Gave me an urge to go visit and see for myself.
Most of all, I thoroughly enjoyed Diane Miller and all her friends. I applauded Diane’s selfless way of starting over, as I firmly believe the world is held together by strong, positive heroines, and Ms. Dunn is now on my list. The story is spellbinding so that you can’t think of anything else, and all you want to do is devour the pages.
Those last few pages, I slowed down a little. Didn’t want the book to finish, but the story doesn’t end; the Millers’ lives continue without us and this is the sad part.
All I can say is that I hope Marie Dunn has another one lined up quickly. So looking forward to another story.
