Molly Ayer has to complete a community service project, and her boyfriend has secured her a project to help an elderly lady clean out her attic. But what Molly finds while helping Vivian Daly clean out her attic is a lot more than just trinkets and old clothes. She discovers a compelling story about another young woman in the same position as she.
What I liked:
So this tugs at your heartstrings. I mean hugely, but not in such a way that you can never recover. I liked that this wasn’t a “ruin your life, I can never trust another book again” kind of book. It was a good story, with some tough subject matter, but with a good ending, and I like a book with a good ending.
What I didn’t like:
The beginning of this book kind of lagged a bit. Once you really get into it it’s pretty compelling, but until then there’s a definite risk of getting bored. My suggestion is to stick with it, for at least the first 100 pages before you judge it.
I would recommend this book to most of my friends, I think. It was a pretty good book, and I think would appeal to a wide audience.
