3.0

This book probably only deserves 3 stars, but it hit in a cozy, easy sort of way. I enjoyed the adult self-discovery journey that Caroline goes through, and found the apothecary story poignant and touching. The messages the author wants to tell do sort of smack you in the face sometimes though, which is jarring, and I wouldn't exactly call the story realistic. I was easily able to suspend my disbelief and go along with it though. I enjoyed the heartwarming tales of three characters in their wildly different stages of life and the lives they made.
