I still vividly remember many of her books because wicham character So far I am already swept away by the main characters: Feb 05, Tiffany rated it it was ok Shelves: One character is being taken advantage of by a girl she’s trying to help, and you can see where it’s all going — she’ll probably lose her job and friends because of tor.

Mar 19, Heather Zabrowski rated it liked it. That being said, when she finally admitted her faults I felt like her life fell into place to easily- which I found unrealistic.

I’ve had it out from the library for over a month and I’m finally finished with it. Quoting from Vulpes Libris You are very welcome to quote up to words from any article posted on Vulpes Libris – as long as you quote accurately, give us qickham credit and link back to the original post.

When i started seeing the book in this light,i felt that the book was not that disappointing. Once the baby arrives however, there are some marvellous scenes with Maggie and her mother-in law, Paddy, where Paddy tries, good-heartedly, to introduce her to some local mothers in her new rural home.

I was a little dissapointed with the typecasting related to names. I like to care about characters and there’s nothing I like more than to cry or laugh whilst reading a book.
