I loved this book. Lila is spunky and her mom finds some spunk of her own when Lila helps her expand her comfort zone a bit. Both ladies find that life has dealt them a bad hand. Lila has lost her job and her marriage and her mother is unable to cope with the aftermath of her father’s unexpected death on many levels, yet somehow they muddle though and are reminded of who they are, who they want to be and what really matters. I loved the characters and the small hometown feel of Black Dog Bay.
