Nothing ever happens
This book feels like a slow beginning of a story that could go somewhere but it never does. Nothing really ever happens in this book the characters don't really grow or endure anything and it ends with a new person showing up and deciding to wrap things up in a nice bow. I don't understand how anyone would think this is worth their time.

A Gentle Breeze takes us back
This book took me on a quiet and unexceptional visit to my own childhood. To a community and time I knew intimately, where everyone had a catholic parish affiliation and upbringing, where we all new the same prayers and relied on them to get us out of trouble, where 12 year olds were still children and parents pulling a car over to spank children was a threat that counted. A life we were all familiar with that had rules and guidelines. It was a life where we were safe from all the scary things we now find in books and on the news, but it was also a real world without easy answers; where dreams didn't come true and where life was controlled by grown ups and rules we never understood.
A story from the past that might only speak to children from that past - but as I am one myself, it was a relaxing read. I wish we could raise children in that world today, but it is a long time gone. I think a lot of us miss it.
