2.5 stars Definitely not Trollope at the top of her game.

Too much book for the amount of story. Certainly not among her best.

First half was quite slow, but ok in the end. Didn't grab me like others of her books; maybe just not interested in adoption.

Joanna Trollope writes superior chick lit; one wonders if she would find that a compliment or an insult. :-) This one didn't grab me right away, but by the middle I was thinking about the characters when I wasn't reading the book, which is always good, and it had a satisfying ending, which is totally necessary for this reader. Not quite a full 4 stars, but more than 3.5.
