RETURN TO SENDER
Michaels' latest novel is emotional and well written. Her strong heroine, Lin, has overcome obstacles in an admirable manner. It is not so easy to feel sympathetic toward Nick. His "poor rich guy" character seems like a cliche. The circumstances that surround Lin's chance meeting with Nick, her son's long-lost father, strain credulity. It's difficult to believe that Nick and his miserable wife just happen to be attending the welcoming banquet for the incoming NYU class, which includes his son.
