I have been really into reading lately, although it does take me a while to finish a book... I am a Mom, enough said! Anyway I just finished reading this novel, There's No Place Like Here, by the same author as P.S. I Love You. I haven't read the book, but I have seen the movie. She is a talented writer and I loved this book. It's very different from most books I read. I like to read girly love stories and this book is definitely not along those lines, but I'm glad I stepped away from the norm. Here is a synopsis borrowed from Barnes and Noble's website:
Bestselling author Cecelia Ahern, whose sparkling novels have more than 5.5 million copies in print worldwide, returns with an ambitious, absorbing, and romantic tale of things -- and people -- lost and found People disappear every day, some because they choose to leave their old lives behind, and some for more unpleasant reasons. Things, too, disappear: mittens and cell phones, wallets and luggage. In every case, someone is left behind; someone is left to wonder what happened.
Ever since her classmate Jenny-May vanished when they were ten years old, Sandy Shortt has been obsessed with finding things. Now grown, Sandy's obsession has become a calling, with her own agency devoted to locating missing persons. But with every failed case, Sandy is plagued with questions: Where do missing people go? Are they alive or dead? Did they intend to disappear, or did they suffer some cruel fate? As these questions threaten to consume her, Sandy suddenly finds that she, herself, has disappeared, and that she has found all the answers she's always searched for in a magical place where all lost things and people go.
A romance that explores the meaning of loss and love, There's No Place Like Here is Cecelia Ahern's most satisfying, most inspired, most entrancing novel yet.
I hope you'll check it out!
