    Exactly, it will all become clear, very soon
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    Judging by the Intro and the bits read, it smacks a little of the film 'The Others'-Nicole Kidman was it? what a twist in the tale that was! but I'm intrigued....might even get it myself! That is if Amazon haven't run out!

    My old neighbour posted me a spare copy she had and it arrived this morning... I'm gripped already!
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    How's everyone going with this?
    I'm at p113 and think that Jack's Mum is so creative, imaginative and trying so hard to give him the best of everything. She's a real heroine I think...

    I loved reading it for a second time - I think itís one of those stories you can read over and over again. Ma was incredible, Iím not sure I could have kept Jack as happy as she did.

    At what point shall I post discussion questions?
