Love in the Little Things 

Mike Aquilina 
Speechless in Half Moon Bay 
I have read LOVE IN THE LITTLE THINGS and gifted 40 or more copies of LOVE IN THE LITTLE THINGS - actually so many that the first time I sent them out to friends, from Amazon, Amazon had to cut me off of more orders because the publisher only allows a certain number to be sold to the same person. Don't ask me why, but it is true; I called in and asked. But the new year seems to have given me a new slate and I can buy LOVE IN THE LITTLE THINGS again and send it to friends. 

Why have I NOT reviewed it? It is too good for me to review. Simple as that. I am SPEECHLESS - but I am going to review it and come in here and edit this post. I just have to say that it is a perfect book. I don't know what that means but it is a perfect book. The poems make me hug myself! The stories of the the Father of the Author, Mike Aquilina (who happens to be my favorite author) are wonderful stories. They make you lonely . . . and happy and sad. I think this book is REAL - about real people and real love and real memories. 

The stories of Frostbite and Children and a, and a, and a . . . all the stories made me smile and cry at the same time. 

I don't review any book or movie that I don't like - I am positive - but LOVE IN THE LITTLE THINGS is over the top Great!
