Little Milestones: A Novel (Inn Significant) by Stephanie Verni was a fascinating story. It was fun, it was easy to read and completely compelling. This isn’t just your run-of-the-mill 'woman gets divorced, moves on with her life' story. This is a story of family bonds, of enduring friendships, heartbreak, new love, and more. It is a real story of life and all of us have reached these little milestones on our own journeys. The characters are wonderfully well developed, real people with real lives and real problems, and they are easy to relate to. The plot is steady, there is plenty going on and some twists that will have you wondering about things in your own life. All in all, a nice, gentle but captivating read.
