My reviewrating: 4 of 5 stars
Maybe I wasn't in a terribly discriminating mood, but I really liked this semi-coming-of-age story. I say "semi" because a woman in her 20s-30s is, for all intents and purposes, already Of Age. Lacey's journey from childhood (divorced parents, runaway scapegrace brother) to marriage (to a Peter Pan type) to living on her own and finally being ok with that resonated. Not because I've had similar experiences, but because the archetypes felt real - I understood her journey.
One major quibble: impactful is NOT a word.
