In the sequel, Annemarie is really trying to be a better mother to her teen daughter Eva, which proves even harder than she expected.


I loved water for elephants so thought I would love this but found it weak. It gives the stories a life so to speak. Nov 20, Suzette rated it did not like it. This book is one of my favourites and I plan to read it every summer.
