I love Melody Carlson, and she did not disappoint me this time. The story is quite unique, and touching, and simply wonderful. The main character, Matilda Honeycutt, is a most unusual "otherworldly" woman, and her shop, like she, is a one-of-a-kind. Encounters with her and her merchandise leave people better than they were before they meet up with her. This is the kind of a book that gives you the warm fuzzies, and leaves you with a smile on your face when you close it. It is at a fabulous price now, so get one for yourself and a few extra for friends.
