This is the 16th book that I have read for this challenge.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
When I first began, I had reservations about this book. I thought the protagonist was timid, self-centered and ineffective. I knew what her ailment was and thought she should have understood and sought some help.
As the story progressed I more clearly understood who Julia was. I started to really appreciate her and her Aunt Lydia. Her small circle of friends in Golden were special in their own way too. This is a great story of friendship, love, acceptance and community. It could become one of my favorite books of 2013.
I haven't read any other Cathy Lamb novels, but I intend to in 2014.

It also makes the 3rd book in the November Food Feast challenge. I read Caramel and Magnolias, Broken Dishes and Julia's Chocolates for that challenge. Those little mini challenges are great fun.
Until next time,
Stay Busy and Stay Happy
