Customer Reviews

"Shipman's charming story of finding peace in oneself, listening to your heart, and remembering all those who came before you will be welcomed by fans of Cecelia Ahern and Debbie Macomber."

— Library Journal

"[An] idyllic setting, and likable characters make Shipman's debut an enjoyable comfort read for fans of women's fiction centered on mother-daughter relationships."

— Booklist

"Debut novelist Shipman a pen name chosen by memoirist Wade Rouse in homage to his grandmother--pulls out all the emotional bells and whistles here; his book reads like a fictionalized guide to living the good life ("Live! Love! Laugh!") and checks all the boxes family, friends, God, love, and simply living designed to warm the heart and fill the tear ducts. Smooth writing, unabashed sentimentality."
