Love Walked In
I just finished this book. My mom the librarian recommended it and she is very rarely wrong about a book. It is a fist time novel by a writer of poetry, something which I think shows throughout the novel. It is the story of a single woman who meets a man and his child. That sounds like a fairly conventional plot line but the story really wasn't. I wasn't sure I was going to like it, as the charming little girl in it has a difficult beginning and I never like books where sad things happen to children, but she is a very strong little character and I ended up being happy with the way things came together. The author has lots of references to old movies, especially The Philadelphia Story and Cary Grant, which I loved. I was feeling in a bit of a rut, a lot of the books I have read lately have been good but similar in plot, this was a nice change. I would definitely recommend this one, it has a nice message about how the people who come into our life and whom we love shape our lives.
