absolutely beautiful! 9 Dec 1999
By Jacquie D'Alessandro - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is one of the loveliest books I've read in a long time. Stephanie Mittman brings her characters to full life. I loved Nan, who had so much love in heart for the children she cared for--she brought tears to my eyes. And Harry was incredibly real--a man with faults who fell in love and gave his entire heart and soul to Nan. The secondary characters were also terrific, as were the very special children. While I loved everything about this book, what I think I liked best was that the characters were just so REAL. I cared about them and what happened to them. I finished this book in one day and it truly touched my heart. Bravo, Ms. Mittman, for a beautiful, beautiful, book.

Misled and disappointed - this was not an enjoyable read 31 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
From the synopsis and the style of cover art (very foolish of me I know), I had expected a romantic comedy. This was *definitely* not the book I received.
Almost all the characters (as pointed out by an earlier reviewer) were not in the least endearing and any appeal that the lead female character had was a mystery to me: self sacrificing to the point of stupidity (I smell a burning martyr); absolutely no common sense although she was portrayed as being a wonderful mother; lost in her own little world with no grasp of reality ... The male lead was marginally better but he is portrayed as falling in love with her while she lurches uselessly from one problem to another. You cannot help but ask yourself, why? how?
The writing was good, but the endless suffering of the characters made reading this book a chore rather than a pleasure.

Food for the Heart 19 Jan 2000
By Medieval Art - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In an era of entertainment over-saturated with excessive violence and meaningless sexual encounters, Stephanie Mittman's work stands out as a touchstone for those of us who remain dedicated to the more old-fashioned ideals of love, honesty and trust. And yet, through the development of complex characters, she manages to avoid simple platitudes or trite themes. She presents her readers with a modern work reminiscent of a gentle literary past, as refreshing as it is entertaining.

Touching and Emotional 11 Feb 2000
By Sherri Frenchik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book very much, I laughed and cried and I think that makes for a good read. It means the author did a great job of really making feel what the characters in the book are feeling. If you have never read Stephanie Mittman books before, you are really missing out on some great books. She really does write like LaVyrle Spencer.

This book this not leave my hand after page one. Stephanie Mittman moves her wonderfully rich storytelling into a contemporary setting and enhances an intensely emotional tale with secrets and adventure. Bravo!
