I can't believe this book has an average rating of four stars. While I feel bad for the author on the loss of her husband and the illness of her daughter, I found the book and the author ostentatious. Some of the book dealt with her anguish, but most of it was just a rundown of a way of life few have the opportunity to experience. I have lost loved ones and had traumatic events in my life and I don’t want to believe that anyone could be this conceited and self centered. I even had a problem finishing it which is very unlike me.
