Odd. Different. If you can throw out the "oh come on, really?" "that'll never happen" "oh please, too obvious" mentality, you'll love it - and I did. ( )

This book was a pretty easy read, but there were some strange aspects to it -- halucinations of relatives, breaking priceless china to memorialize victims of the Nazis who had stolen it, a housefull of un-related characters. But despite all that I actually liked this book -- the ending doesn't leave you with any big surprises though. ( )

This novel is interestingly enough about many characters that are “broken”. Particularly there is the sick and elderly Margaret Hughes who has conversations with her vast antique china collection. Then there is the young and lost Wanda Schultz who has spent many years surviving, first with relatives and then on her own, after her parents abandoned her. These two both have secrets and worries that they share with no one. When Margaret decides to offer a room for rent in her large mansion, Wanda answers the ad. The unlikely pair begins forming a friendship that frees both of them, and in doing so; the two find an unusual way to make broken for you truly a relevant title for the book.

I sympathized with the characters and was very happy when they found one anther. And I enjoyed how the theme came together. However, it was very easy to predict how everything might fall into place to bring the book and the reader to a satisfying conclusion. In spite of that, I would recommend the book as an above average read.

Much better than Sing Then Home, but it just did not hold me. Started off really well, great characters, mild hints to draw you in, but then it relied way too much on coincidence, or the "It's A Small World" theory. Fine for a beach or travel book, maybe that is why my library copy was full of SAND!!! ( )

They're so much more than objects. They're living things, crafted and used by people like us. They reach out to us and through them we forge a link with the past. ---Guendolen Plestcheeff, decorative arts collector (1892--1994)
