I probably would've liked it more if I'd read the first one first. But it's taking the library forever to get it to me, so I went ahead with the second. It's got some good information, but there's more of the author's own opinions and commentaries than I would've liked. i.e. It's okay to sway from pure C.M. teachings in this area but not in others. But all in all I got some useful information from it.
A sad, yet thoughtful and inspirational read. Holly, a fourteen-year-old care-babe (foster child) finds her alter ego "Solace" when she tries on a wig she finds at her new London foster home and decides to set out to find her Mother in Ireland. The resulting road trip shows her the road to her future and clarifies the past as well in this bittersweet final novel by Dowd. Getting into the heads of her characters and making me feel like I'm there too is what makes Dowd's books resonate. My favorite character other than Holly/Solace was the vegan truck driver.
