I wasn't so sure about the first half of the book, but once I got to about 60%, it got really good. The nostalgia and beauty and appreciation of her father and their simple, ordinary days was all so lovely. I really loved the thoughts about growing up alongside your parents and about childhood memories being the parents' favorite memories, too. I really appreciated that this was a love story about family and friends and self, yet I liked the hint of full-circle romantic love at the end. It was satisfying without taking away from the depth of the novel.
