I thought this book might be a bit of tear-jearker, but I actually found it an uplifting and inspiring read.
The four daughters in the book are each very different, but all very likeable. I especially enjoyed reading Hannah and Amanda's stories.
The letters from 'Mum' were lovely to read and the strongest thing I took from this book was a sense of 'live for today - you never know what will happen tomorrow'.
At times I couldn't put this book down, and had a few to many late nights as a result of this.
All in all I would recommend this as a good book for my friends to read. A lovely example of grown-up chick-lit.
