“The Things We Do For Love....although the title of a book by Kristen, it's something we all experience in our lifetime.
Angie loses her newborn baby, her Father and then her husband, all in the same year, silo she decided to move back to the town where she grew up, West End, WA. There her Mother continues to run the family restaurant her father started but when Angie arrives she quickly learns the restaurant is going under. ]
Lauren was brought up with out any real parents. She never knew her father and truth be known, Lauren raised her mother instead of being raised. Ands she had a kind, loving and wonderful boyfriend, David.
Mix all this and more into a book and only Kristen Hannah will keep you turning each page. You think you know exactly what will happen, but do you really?
Another great book by Kristen Hannah. I've never read a bad book by her and I believe I only have one more! ”

“This heartwarming story will stay in my memory for a long time. Great for teen girls or older women. Men who enjoy chick lit would also love this book. I listened to this on CD and loved it. Not to distracting while driving yet not boring...just right for commuting.”Anne wrote this review Thursday, January 17, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“340 pages; Loved, loved, loved this book! Kristin Hannah is definitely one of my favorite authors, and this older read by her didn't disappoint. The story revolves around Angie and Lauren. Angie is trying to get her life back on track after being newly divorced by moving home and helping to save her family's restaurant. While she is healing from her divorce as well as her inability to have children, she meets Lauren. Lauren is a 17-year old girl that comes to find a job at the family restaurant. She has had to care for herself most of her life because of her alcoholic mother. Lauren and Angie begin to develop a friendship and Lauren starts to see what it could be like to have a real mom that loves and cares for her. Things, of course, refuse to stay uncomplicated, but I was very happy with the story's resolution. Hannah has a gift for writing about relationships. Excellent read! ”Erin wrote this review Thursday, August 16, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“This was my first Kristin Hannah book and I really enjoyed it. Not as deep or dramatic as a Jodi Piccoult book, but very similarly written, only a bit lighter. ”Jennifer Kasper wrote this review Saturday, July 14, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“The first hundred pages were pretty good. After that, it went downhill quick. I thought it would be more about family and less about sappy romance. The family parts were good, but there was far too much sap.”Kylie wrote this review Tuesday, June 5, 2012. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
