    Favourite quote: She thought Love was bigger than God. But she found out it isn't and she ended up with a cat instead.

  2. Sharon says:

    Isabelle deals with her father's death by writing him posthumous letters. The author captures the voice and understanding of a pre-teen girl in the 1940's as well as the period setting-to which I well relate. . The last comment in the book sums up the book: une jeune fille tres evoluee.

    Father's Day, 2013

    Dear Anne,

    Thank you for this beautiful story. What a gift, to transport the reader to another world, especially a child's world.

    September 19, 1944 - this entry got me and the tears came pouring.
    September 19 is a big day in this family, I said.
    What! Ida squealed. Is it my birthday?
    No, it is your Papa's birthday, I told her.
    But we just got him a pipe in the summer, Ida said.
    She means your other Papa, Ian said. The one who's gone.

    This took me back to the first vacation after my parent's separation, with my mom and soon-to-be step-father. I subtly suggested a thoughtful gift for my dad. I hadn't forgotten him even though that's exactly what she was trying to do.

    So thank you for this gift to all of us. It is a poignant reminder to not only remember our loved ones who've passed but that it is our responsibility to share their legacy with others.

    Your fan, Janet

    This is a must read. This book helps you realize the importance of family, and that you might not have a whole lot of time left with your loved ones, so you should express your gratitude, and thanks to your family members everyday. This book is really a heartwarming story, and I hope that everyone would get the chance to read this wonderful book. You never know when you might have to say goodbye...

    Perfectly captures the child-narrator's voice and her growing awareness of youth transforming into adolescence. I loved this slim novel, loved the humor and the tenderness on every page.

  6. Frances says:

  9. Heather says:

    This is such a beautiful, heartwearming-yet-heartbreaking story told through the eyes of a nine-year-old girl, writing letters to her dead Papa. It is so affecting to read of her struggles to come to terms with all of the changes in her life and her feelings of guilt about them, in a time when adults often didn't recognize children's feelings as something to be considered or addressed. It took me only two hours to read this book, but I would have happily devoted a week to it - if only it had it been longer!

    This book is a really good book. A girl named Isabella is writing to her Grandfather who is dead she sends the letters to her Aunt Izzy.I read this book because one day my friend Sydney was reading it. So, I asked her could I read it after her. Then I read it and it was a very good and wonderful book.-DJ
