A little romance, A little Magic. Hard book to put a assign to a genre. It is a gentle fantasy romance about an imaginary friend who falls in love with his friend's Aunt. It is a serious story about a family that is torn apart by alcohol addiction. It is an amusing tale of a uptight woman learning see the world around her with childlike wonder. It is many things all woven together in a lovely book. That is,, of coarse, what Cecelia Ahren does best. A good read for the reader willing to suspend belief for a short while.
