After all these years is there any way you would see me again? When Emma Lauryn Gilford heard the voice on her answering machine, she thought, How dare he? She’s put a lot of distance between herself and Samuel, filling her life with work and family, lavishing her attention on her lovely nieces and a garden that’s the pride of Higgins, South Carolina. So why does his voice still have the power to make her heart skip? Why can’t she stop thinking about this man she’d forgotten so long ago?

Emma has always been the dependable daughter, the mediator of the controlled chaos always surrounding her high-strung sisters and her widowed mother, Higgins’ own senior citizen seductress. But with the annual Gilford family reunion just around the corner, at least two of her sisters approaching meltdown, and her favorite teenage niece taking sanctuary in her home, Emma’s concrete wall of self-denial is showing cracks. And on the other side is a life she can’t put off living a moment longer.

    " This book reminded me of my sisters. I have two older ones (and two older brothers) and we just don't KNOW each other. We keep everything very basic and as a result there is misunderstanding, lack of closeness and . . . just, lots of what was described. A great great read. "

    " I have been making my way through books written by Kris Radish. I really enjoy them and the characters. This one was a disappointment. I could never quite understand the main character and her angst. The book was too superficial to be believable, yet it was still a fun book and mildly entertaining. Some of her other books are better. "

    " The highlight of this book for me was the description of how Emma felt about her plants. I can relate to that, including the lying down in her garden. A wacky family drama with humor that has made me interested in checking out other books by the same author. I did find the author's writing style somewhat dense at times - longish sentences that felt awkward. But worth the read nonetheless. "

    " Pretty light but some good lines on family. 3 1/2 stars "
