There are very few authors who can pen a debut novel that grabs your heart and won't let go, Higgins is - without a doubt - such an author... Higgins reaches deep into every woman's soul and showed some heavy truths in a fantastically funny and touching tale. This book is on my keeper shelf and will remain there for eternity. It will be re-read and loved for years to come.
