Alice is the black sheep of her family. She has never enjoyed the closeness with her father that her two older sisters have and is late to hear the news that her father is dying. Daniel hasn't had a roof over his head for almost thirty years, but he once had a steady job and a passionate love affair with a woman he's never forgotten. His heart is failing, but he is kept alive by the knowledge that he has a daughter somewhere in the world whom he has never been able to find. Their unlikely relationship becomes a story about the power of the ties that bind.

I took this off the shelf impulsively and was pleasantly surprised. It was enjoyable and thought-provoking. Do YOU agree with how the book ends? Would YOU have done the same thing? Thoughts to ponder.

This was a very good read. Realistic & kept me interested with each page.

poignant without being twee...I believe ms. butler can write! I found the character of Daniel to be especially captivating- original. Lovely descriptions of what it feels like to lose grasp and to feel 'outside' your own family (and who hasn't felt that)-
