I enjoyed this book. The family had lost everything monetary, and each other. After spending time with the Amish family and learning more about the simple things, they really found out what was important.
I enjoy Debbie Macomber's books and this one was no exception. Her characters are familiar and become like old friends after reading several of her other books. It's nice to have some of the names from the Cedar Cove series pop up in this book too. I would recommend this book for other fans of Debbie Macomber.
After I read this book, I actually had to take a little time to think about it before writing a review. I liked the book,but I don't feel like I really got a chance to know the characters very well, and what I did learn, I didn't necessarily like.This book did make me take a hard look at how an illness among friends and acquaintances may affect everyone around them. I think we all would like to think we would jump right in and help in any way that we could, but at the same time, it drives home our own mortality.The Art of Saying Goodbye is well worth the read and will make you take a hard look at yourself and your relationship with your friends.
