Then there's the rest: this book needed some reworking and editing. Everyone is described as sad - Ella, Conor, Jack, and Rachel - and others too. It takes 80% of the book before anyone is anything but sad! Surely there are other descriptors out there. I was tempted to give up on the book as it plodded along in this "sad" fashion. Other problems included small glitches like a person is one thing and then another a few paragraphs later to bigger things like Conor being misjudged for some time and then suddenly he's not - all because of a very short conversation that was really no different from previous conversations.
I enjoyed the way things were eventually dealt with, but it was a frustrating reading knowing it could have been put together a lot better.

If there was any author that I wished I could write like in terms of descriptions, Ms. Finnerty would be it. In general the feeling was warm and wholesome and yet fresh-the type of story you would read sitting in the park on a Spring day, only getting up when you finished or when you found the park to be closing. A beautiful, captivating read that will definitely send me to Ms. Finnerty’s back catalogue. Highly recommend.
4.5 out of 5
All characters in the story were beautifully crafted with the smallest details making them even more credible and easy to connect with. For example, we know that Jack loves Giant Jawbreakers but his ma says that they will make his jaws stick together one day. Also, the dialogues were very well thought of, especially between Conor and Jack. I imagine it must have been difficult to write dialogues between an eight-year-old and an adult and show how their friendship developed and brought out the best in each of them; but Caroline managed that very well. I had to laugh at some of the things Jack said, he was a real chatter box! These two were the characters that I would actually like to meet in real life!
What I also loved about the book was the amazing setting that Caroline created. Just to give you one example – Ella’s house. It isn’t just an ordinary house, or even just an ordinary mansion. Ella lives in a tower house on the seaside (how cool is that!). Caroline’s descriptions were so vivid, I could just picture the big waves crashing off the shore, and the reflections of the city lights on the waters of Dublin Bay at night time. It must be amazing to live in such beautiful surroundings!
I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend some time in an absolutely amazing world. Heart-warming story, together with wonderful characters and stunning surroundings created a truly unforgettable experience.
