It's a great story, made all the more memorable because it is true. And because although it is far from Kelly's dream job, she is a good person and she wants to do nice things for the family. I loved the adage , Things happen when you leave the house, but by the end it seemed that you don't have to leave the house, as long as you've already left the country. Evan, I'm looking at you boy.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, finishing it in under 48 hours. It can be hard, sometimes, to care that much about someone else's life, their personal-to-them details that don't mean much to you, but the author got me so invested in this book I needed to know what happened to all the featured characters. The ending, in particular the epilogue itself, made me weep and I was sorry for the way some of it turned out, though not surprised. I too have traveled the world and made great friends along the way, but I'd be at a loss to tell you where they are and what they're doing now, Facebook updates aside.
It's easy to see how Corrigan has become a best-selling author: she has an immensely likeable voice... while it's "heart-warming it's also perceptive. * Sunday Herald *
