This was by far my favorite Jane Green book. I always love her books, but always end up feeling unsatisfied with the quick endings. This was very different. The story slowly grew, written beautifully as usual. The story wrapped up with great details of how each of the characters continued their story after the summer was over. I loved it! Nan's story was beautiful. Her impact on each character continued to suprise me. I listened to this book on CD on my way to and from work each day and it was a wonderful way to spend my time in traffic.
