From Publishers Weekly

In this tear-jerking novel by Hannah (Between Sisters), 38-year-old Angela Malone abandons a successful advertising career in Seattle to find comfort in West End, the small Pacific Northwest coastal town where she grew up. Pregnancy woes (chronic miscarriages, a baby who lived only for five days and a botched adoption) have caused her marriage to journalist Conlan to end in divorce. Her big, warmhearted Italian family welcomes her with open arms, and she throws herself into revamping the family restaurant, DeSaria's. Then she befriends hard-working teenager Lauren Ribido, who's in need of a new coat, some mothering and, later on, a place to live. Lauren's life is far worse than self-pitying Angie's—she's pregnant, her alcoholic mother has given up on her, and her rich boyfriend, David, is off to his first-choice college. Lauren can't go through with the abortion David encourages her to have, and the next step seems obvious: she should give the baby up to Angie, who's on the way to reconciling with Conlan. Hannah stacks the odds against Lauren almost absurdly, and makes her life with Angie a rose-tinted dream come true, but she paints a wrenching, convincing picture of the dilemma teenage mothers face. Familiar but warmly rendered characters, a few surprising twists and a bittersweet ending make this satisfying summer reading.

From Booklist

Best-selling Hannah's latest sensitive tale explores the need we all have for love in a portrait of two women of different ages and backgrounds. Angie Malone has come back to her small Washington State town after suffering the loss of a child, the end of a marriage, and the death of her father. Nestled in the bosom of her family, she tries to help with their failing restaurant. Her mother and sisters are glad she's home but realize that she needs something more as she copes with her grief, yet when Angie reaches out to 18-year-old Lauren Ribido, who seeks a job at the restaurant, they worry that she'll be disappointed. Lauren has not had an easy life. Her mother is an alcoholic who reminds Lauren constantly that she was a mistake and is the reason for their poverty, but Lauren is trying to rise above her circumstances through hard work and a quest for a college scholarship. Angie becomes attached to her and acts like a surrogate mother as they embark on a shaky friendship. Hannah captures the joy and heartache of family as she draws the reader into the lives of her characters and makes them feel like personal friends, proving once again why she is a star of women's fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ein wunderbares, aber auch melancholisches Buch 10. November 2005
Von Ein Kunde
Zum Inhalt: Angie Malone kehrt nach dem Verlust ihrer kleinen Tochter und dem Scheitern ihrer Ehe in ihre Heimatstadt zurück. Hier wohnen ihre Mutter und ihre beiden Schwestern, die nach dem Tod des geliebten Mannes bzw. Vaters das italienische Familienrestaurant weiterführen. Mit diesem Restaurant steht es nicht gut. Daher soll Angie eine "Marketingkampagne" entwickeln, die natürlich viele Veränderungen mit sich bringt. Eines Abends trifft sie zufällig Lauren Ribido, deren Mutter sich nicht um sie kümmert und die viele andere Probleme hat. Nach einem einschneidenden Ereignis nimmt Angie Lauren bei sich auf. Das Verhältnis entwickelt sich immer mehr zu einer Mutter-Tochter-Beziehung, was Angies Familie aufgrund der Geschehnisse in deren jüngster Vergangenheit Sorgen bereitet.
Kristin Hannah ist eine meiner Lieblingsautorinnen. Sie hat eine wunderbare Erzählweise, sehr komplex, niemals vorhersehbar und sehr einfühlend. Ich freue mich auf ihre nächsten beiden Bücher Comfort & Joy und Magic Hour, die demnächst erscheinen.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 5 TISSUE LISTENING 25. Juli 2004
Von Gail Cooke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Audio CD
Able voice performer Susan Ericksen delivers a fine performance as she articulates the hopes and dreams of two women, one a 38-year-old who appears to have lost everything, the other a young unwed mother-to-be.

Angela DeSaria Malone knew early on what the years ahead would hold: love, marriage and children. This was not to be. She has undergone what for her is surely the ultimate heartbreak: she has suffered miscarriages, lost a child, been unable to adopt, and finally her marriage has crumbled.

She returns to her hometown of West End hoping to find comfort among her family and familiar surroundings. Once there she loses herself in redoing the family restaurant, and she meets young Lauren Ribido. Lauren touches Angie's heart; the girl is pregnant, deserted by her lover and ignored by her mother. She's in desperate need of love and care. Of course, Angie provides both.

An abortion is simply out of the question for Lauren. But, what can she offer a child? Would it make sense for Angie to adopt the child? Sometimes the most logical conclusions are not in the offing. Both women are swept up in life altering experiences.

Another listen that requires Kleenex on the side.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful 20. Dezember 2005
Von eb - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was looking for something to read on vacation and what a wonderful surprise! I was so pleased with this book that I am back today to buy at least 3 or 4 more by this author. I am a great fan of LaVyrle Spencer and was heartbroken when she quit writing but Kristin Hannah has a very similar style and I am so excited to have discovered her. The characters are so real and the stories so believable that you forget it is a novel. Can't wait to get my package from Amazon!

5.0 von 5 Sternen deep relationship drama 26. Juni 2004
Von Harriet Klausner - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Angela and Conlan Malone divorce after fourteen years of marriage because she never recovered from emotional setbacks caused by her infant's death and a failed adoption. The advertising guru flees Seattle for her hometown of West End, a few hours away. In town, her recently widowed mom and her sisters welcome her home, but the siblings still hold some resentment on the special treatment their dad provided to his Princess while they slaved in the family restaurant, DeSaria's.
Since the fourth grade, Lauren Ribaldo has worked to insure she would never duplicate the loser life of her mother. When she lost her job due to cutbacks, she searched for employment to pay the rent, but high school seniors have limited opportunities. Angela needs to help the teen, finally hiring her as a waitress while she struggles to save the family business. As she helps Lauren improve her life, Angela feels she receives more back as she has the child she always wanted, though she thought it would be playgrounds for a while not fancy dates. Déjà vu will soon test the relationship between these proud folks.
Readers will appreciate this deep relationship drama starring a solid female protagonist struggling with emotional setbacks and a fine support crew that brings Angela further alive for the audience. The story line is filled with emotional excitement whether it is the restaurant, the broken link with Conlan or the growing relationship between Angela and Lauren. Fans of a five tissue box character study will enjoy THE THINGS WE DO FOR LOVE and want a future tale starring an older Lauren.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Tear-jerker! 30. Mai 2006
Von Busy Mom - Veröffentlicht auf
While taking care of a three and half year old boy who got sick with a stomach bug over the holiday weekend ~~ I needed something light to read in between laundry duty and dishes and nurturing a little boy. I picked this one up and was engrossed into the story till 1 a.m.! It's been awhile since I've been able to do something like this!

This is probably my first Kristin Hannah book ~~ and I was leery of picking it up since I am on a roll with my nonfiction reading. I am glad though that I picked it up! It's been ages since I have laid in bed and finished a book in hours!

This book is about Angie who returned home to her small town after leaving a high profile advertising career in Seattle. She just went through a divorce ~~ not a bitter divorce, just a very sad one. She had given up her dreams of having a baby after suffering for years with miscarriages, infertility issues and losing her little baby, Sophia. She comes home to where her family is and rediscovers her dreams. Lauren, the other main character in the story, is a loveless seventeen year old, who has worked very hard in maintaining a scholarship at the local private school. She works full time after school and is dating the star of the football team, David. Lauren and Angie discover one another and helped each other to heal.

It is a beautiful story ~~ lots of promises and hope and joy. There is sadness and tears but it is a happy ever ending story ~~ which is what I like to read once in awhile! The scenery and the food descriptions sound wonderful ~~ and it sure is a great escape novel! =0)

This is a perfect read for any time, especially in the summertime when it's hot out and you need to keep still to keep cool! I plan on reading another one of this author's books if I see them around!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Moved Me to Tears 2. Februar 2005
Von M. Davis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This story interested me because I am a fan of Kristin Hannah's books. This one is one of the best of hers I have read. The story showed very strong emotions, very realistic situations, and highly believable characters. This book looks some things straight in the eye, like poverty and teenage pregnancy, making the reader want to help those that are suffering from either. The story will make you believe in the power of family and the power of love, and it will more than likely make you shed a few tears. Not really a light read, but enjoyable nonetheless.
