loved this book...

I read this book while I was on vacation and loved it. I highly recommend Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan if your looking for your next book.
Its an emotional book, which I dont really choose to read when Im on vacation, but it was so good I could not put it down - a little exert from Amazon

"The Middle Place is about calling home. Instinctively. Even when all the paperwork -- a marriage license, a notarized deed, two birth certificates, and seven years of tax returns -- clearly indicates you're an adult, but all the same, there you are, clutching the phone and thanking God that you're still somebody's daughter."

Theres lots more to this story. Like a woman with small children going through breast cancer while her Dad is going through his third bout with his own cancer. I absolutely fell in love with her family stories and the bond she has with her Dad.

She has a website here - http://kellycorrigan.com/themiddleplace/videos.php
and you can watch a few videos of her reading parts of the book.

or you may have seen her youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_4qwVLqt9Q

but she also has a website http://www.circusofcancer.org/
that deals with how you can help a friend who has cancer.
