Rated of 5
Although I am not much of a reader, I did not want this book to end. Throughout the novel I felt as though I had built a real connection with the characters; feeling Lily's fear of her father and her past, August's love and concern for everyone, May's compassionate, yet painful outlook on life, and even June's stubborn position on her marriage to Neil. Kidd portrayed all of these characters in the most fascinating way, leaving me wishing I could invite them all to lunch for the most wonderful and most interesting conversation and meal of my life!!
