    original review found at received this novel as part of a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review I must admit that this book frustrated me quite a bit I will start with what I did not particularly like and then move on to what I did like I found that as far as the actual plot of the story there was a whole lot of nothing I know that the underlying theme was about Clara discovering who she was and becoming independent however I felt like original review found at received this novel as part of a Goodreads giveaway in exchange for an honest review I must admit that this book frustrated me quite a bit I will start with what I did not particularly like and then move on to what I did like I found that as far as the actual plot of the story there was a whole lot of nothing I know that the underlying theme was about Clara discovering who she was and becoming independent however I felt like all that occurred throughout the story was a whole lot of wallowing followed up by a whole lot of eating Clara s journey did not seem realistic nor did her family s As a result I felt the story was 100 pages too many On the flip side this story painted a brilliant picture of Holland I have never been however it is on my list of places to go and I felt that Willers was able to give me the next best thing The way she described the people, the landscape and the food made me feel like I was there I could smell and taste the food as she was describing it I give credit to Willers for her wonderful descriptions It is clear that she has a great love of Holland and or fantastic research skills To sum it up, although I was not terribly impressed with the actual story, the portrayal of Holland made up for the gaps The true hero of the story was Holland and I am glad that I could experience it through the pages of this story

    I loved this book It was a beautiful portrait of expat life in the Netherlands, and an excellent tale of self discovery I found it uplifting and engaging, and loved the focus Clara had on her needs and her journey It made me homesick for the time I spent in the Netherlands, and had me cheering for Clara every step of the way
