I was lucky enough to receive this book through Goodreads' Give Away program, and I am so, so pleased I took a chance on entering.

This book is wonderful. It came as no surprise to find out that Mapson is from the Southwest; she captured California and New Mexico's culture and beauty in a way that made me feel that I was right there with Glory and Joseph and Juniper, and as if I'd had Lorna for my own grandmother. The plot was very well put together; I love it when an author can intertwine related plotlines without the story becoming jumbled and confusing, and Mapson managed wonderfully. The only part that I think could be improved would be the end; it felt a little rushed in terms of plot. However, the very end of the book was perfect; not too vague, and not detailed enough so as to leave nothing to the reader's imagination.

This book is a great novel altogther, interweaving hope and grief into a beautiful tale of love and acceptance against a stunning backdrop of the Southwestern United States. ( )

The story unfolds slowly, but I enjoyed getting to know the characters and seeing how their lives would impact each other's. ( )

Lovely book. I really enjoyed it - fell in love with the characters - one and all. Who wouldn't love to have a white oak in the backyard? ( )

Wonderful book. Great, unforgettable characters, lovely descriptions, deep emotion. HEA.
I'm going to Amazon to buy more of hers right now.

Found this on the Kindle Daily Deal, and authors, I highly recommend it, if you can get chosen. This worked just like it was supposed to - I read it, loved it (at $1.99) and it doesn't matter how much the rest cost. I can't wait to read them! ( )

Somehow this book got buried (and not in my tbr pile). After picking it up, I couldn't put it down. Jo-Ann Mapson wrote a good story, with great characters, enormous empathy for all characters, and ended it in a believable, satisfying way. I will be reading her other books immediately!

It’s my belief that animals can help a human being travel to the wounds of childhood. The best part is, once you go there, you can fix things. Get on with life.
All Glory’s dogs had high self-esteem. Edsel was a bit of a narcissist. Dodge believed to his marrow that everyone in the world was put there to welcome his slobbering kisses, but only Caddy was a master at détente.
Maybe it was naive, but Glory believed that there was hope for any kid that read fiction. A willingness to lose one's self in a story was the first step to learning compassion, to appreciating other cultures, to realizing what possibilities the world held for people who kept at life despite the odds.
No matter how well you rub a dog down with a towel, plenty of water is still left in his fur to shake all over you. When you drive home in a car stinking of damp dog, even with your face windburned and when you're so hungry you could eat two whole hamburgers without bothering to take off the pickles, when the best teacher you ever had starts singing along in Spanish with the radio even though he has a terrible singing voice, all those things together is the moment you know you have a family.
