It has been decades since Leo Leo Gursky first surrendered his heart, then wrote a book about it--at the tender age of 10--and he's been in love with the same person ever since. Leo believes his book is lost to time, but what he doesn't know is, not only has it survived 60 years without him, it has also been an inspiration to others. Fourteen-year-old Alma was even named for a character from the book. When she realizes how deeply the story touched her lonely mother, she embarks upon a search for answers.

At the beginning, I thought, "This is one of those books I'm going to love!" This reaction came about because I loved the voice of Leo Gursky. Somewhere along the line, though, the story slowed down and got confusing and my interest waned. I had to go back and re-read sections because my attention had wandered. Much of the writing is lyrical and worthwhile in and of itself, and the story's premise is quite charming. I just wish it had held together well enough to fulfill the promise of the beginning.

I loved loved the voice and stories of Leo Gursky. Everyone one else though – no. Not at all. In all I felt the storyline went wayward and became unnecessarily convoluted. I skipped large sections of the book then filled in the blanks by reading the book’s Wikipedia description. That was enough for me.
