BLURB: Sarah Moon is a creator of a comic Strip called Just Breathe. She is pretty happy with her life with her husband Jack, despite the fact that they are having a difficult time getting pregnant. She comes home one day to find him in bed with another woman, and returns to her hometown, Glenmuir. Glenmuir is a fictional town based on the Marin area in Northern California. Soon after she arrives in Glenmuir, Sarah finds out she is pregnant, and later finds out she is expecting twins. She gets her life back on track, and meets friends, and even starts going to a support group for divorced people. She even becomes friends with a guy named Will Bonner, who she went to highschool with. They soon fall in love, and end up getting married. Will has custody of his stepdaughter, Aurora, who is entering those tough teenage years, and is beginning to have questions about her real mother. But, throughout the book Aurora and Sarah have a great friendship. And despite some tension when Aurora realizes Sarah and Will love each other, Sarah and Aurora manage to stay friends and keep the friendship strong.
My thoughts: I LOVED this book...I've loved all Susan Wiggs books I've read so far and can't wait to read more. My only complaint was that this book ended. I would've loved to have read further. And throughout this book I kept thinking how it would be a great movie.
I think my favorite character was Sarah. She sure had a lot on her plate, yet she managed to survive and deal with it all. I did expect her to get pregnant after moving to Glenmuir, but I expected it to come much sooner than it did, and I was definitely NOT expecting twins.
