    1. A very interesting book, and one that I remember shocking me as a child. Lacey lives with her mother, and mother's lover (hence the shock), who are both artists, and are now returning to Lacey's mother's childhood home, a close-knit Appalachian town. David, the lover, is a gifted iron worker, and has been commissioned to make decorative railings for a new resort, a job that will last long enough for them to build a home and for Lacey to enroll in school, a school chock full of cousins she's neve [...]

    2. A blurb on the back cover of this book states: "without warning, tragedy strikes. .e entire family must learn what it means to grieve-" .

That's how skillful a writer Smith is.

    3. I loved this sweet little book about a family that has a few family issues to work out. I don't often read books from authors with the guts to kill off one of their main (and my favorite) character. I would have loved this book to be a little longer becuase I enjoyed reading it so much.
