This is a lovely story about recovering from illness after losing everything and finding a home. I especially liked the author's characterization of Julia who can be depressed and ornery but is still likable as she finds her true self while not losing the steel that imbued her former personality. Chad's a nice guy who takes care of others but has been a bit lost and finds his true home in Julia.
There are some funny incidents that made me laugh out loud but fit into the story well. I can relate to George's 'illness' as I had the same thing happen in my past.
I recommend a visit to Smithville; you won't regret it.
I liked the length of the story. Many stories end abruptly leaving readers hanging, not sure what happened. Most unsatisfactory.
This gentle story continued to a satisfying conclusion. Lovely.
There were definitely some loose ends that should've been wrapped up before the end of the book. I'm not a fan of authors giving their characters unlimited money, but it's more frustrating when they call out money worries and them without telling you really anything else suddenly money isn't an issue.

Not sure if some moments are meant to be comical eg the accident with the stain? Her response just seems weird not amusing. Similar with the mistake with the cat- am I meant to be laughing? It was kind of obvious.
Crucially though none of the characters appeal to me. I can't imagine Chad at all. Bobby is obviously younger than him by a few years, yet he acts like a lovestruck teenager whilst at the same time is described as if he is an older man. I'm not sure if he is meant to be what used to be referred to as a 'bit simple'?
I really cannot stand Julia though- she seems to have no endearing features being rude to most people for no other reason than her own emotional response to them. Soooooo much psychological baggage! She seems to be miserable most of the time and is close to tears or crying at regular intervals. She encourages both Bobby and Chad despite having no interest at all in Bobby and doesn't want to be interested in Chad. I am not sure why anybody likes her?
Not a recommended read as there are also some odd sentence constructions eg 'what all is...'? As well as other typo errors eg 'noting' instead of 'nothing' , 'od' instead of 'do'.
