Rachel - So I was actually with you when you bought this one (I have such a weird memory, I know), and I’ve been curious as to what you thought about it. I probably wouldn’t pick this one up on my own since I’m not the *hugest* fan of pregnancy related books, but your description of this one makes me want to read it just for the beauty of it.

Lucy - I’m just about to start my first Kephart book (One Thing Stolen) and I’m sure I’ll want to dive into her back catalog when I finish. Definitely keeping this one in mind…gorgeous review!

Amy @ Tripping Over Books - OMG ESTELLE I loved this book too! I loved the writing and I really enjoyed the way that Kenzie develops this really sweet connection with her bebe. And of course, it made me want to go to Spain and get that red clay dirt all over me.

Emma @ Miss Print - I recently read Undercover by Beth Kephart and absolutely loved it so I’m happy to hear that this one also delivers. I’d been unsure about reading it as it’s not my usual bag but based on your review it sounds like I must!

Beth Kephart - How glorious are you? Oh, you are very glorious. Thank you, dear reading soul. To Spain you must go.
