An interesting book, at times rich and dense in language, other times fluid with action, THE LAST WILL OF MOIRA LEAHY will leave readers questioning the assumptions they might have about twins and about the mysteries of how deeply you can truly know someone.

I won this from somewhere, and it was great! I will probably read Walsh's other stuff when I get around to it . . .

Read this book for 52 Weeks 52 Books 2014.10. Read on my kindle with whisper sync.

After the death of their mother, Olivia and Jazz set out to make the trip their mother could not bring herself to take. Their journey becomes a way not only to deal and accept the death of their mother but to find each other. They are on a journey one willing and sure this is the right thing to do the other heels dug in believes the trip is nothing more than a flight of fancy.

I found many wonderful passages that spoke to me throughout the book, here are just a few of my favorites:

pg 4 "If you live your whole life hoping and dreaming the wrong things, what does that mean about your whole life?"

pg 24 "It was okay to believe in things that others didn't believe in. It was okay not to believe, too.

pg 43 :You should always think about what you say before you say it, always mean what you do before you do it. Always be sure of yourself, and consider the repercussions."

pg 222 "Maybe wishing made it less likely that we'd try to make things come true on our own. Maybe wishing made something inside us go lax."

Very enjoyable read!

pg 268 "Maybe I wasn't so stuck. All those prisoners stayed put, after all, when they could've run. Because they were safe where they were, or because leaving was a risk."
