Great message in this clever book that also is a keepsake. Came from a friend at a time when I took on a huge challenge in my career. This story is about looking for happiness and finally discovering your idea of happiness might not be a perfect fit. ( )

A depressing view of relationships. Not half as terrible as The Giving Tree though.
