This book had me hooked after the first chapter. It is a fast read and one that you will want to pass along to your friends. It is so refreshing to read this amazing story and escape for a few hours from the paces of our every day lives. So run, don't walk, to your local library and reserve your copy. I always say that a book is a gift you give to yourself. The benefit is that it contains no calories unless you just happen to have a pint of Ben & Jerry's in your fridge.
