  • 3.5 starsThis is a thought provoking story of one woman s journey to reclaim her dreams, her heart, and her life It s women s fiction than contemporary romance or chick lit, but the romance is there and it s sweet I enjoyed getting to know Annie and Fletcher and the rest of Switchback, Vermont s residents, but I have to admit that I had a problem with Annie who I found rather selfish in the relationship department I get needing to focus on your career but too often, it seemed, Fletcher played s [...]


  • This was a good story Just a bit predictable, but that realization took quite a while to come to fruition I have to admit I am getting a bit weary of stories that go from now to then and back again This seems to be the new norm in fiction these days Susan Wiggs writes a compelling story and kept me wanting to come back and read That is my favorite kind of book.


  • Favorite Quotes It was one of those moments Gran used to call a key moment Time didn t simply tick past, unremarked, unnoticed No, this was the kind of moment that made everything stop You separated it from every other one, pressing the feeling to your heart, like a dried flower slipped between the pages of a beloved book The moment was made of something fragile and delicate, yet it possessed the power to last forever Memories are strange things, aren t they You can t touch them and hold them in [...]
