My Thoughts...
Finally Pagels is writing women's fiction. And it blow me away. I love stories of families and love and the laugh out loud moments were great.  I had no idea going in I was going to love this book. The cover alone and the title had me I did not really care about the story but oh boy was it fantastic.
5 stars and I need Pagels to hurry up and pour our another great story.
