This was like coming home to something very familiar and loved. This last novel in Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City series closes the cycle in a much better way than Sure of You did. No bitter taste, just closure. We meet up with Micheal Tolliver, HIV survivor who didn't expect to live this long, didn't expect to out live Anna or any of his friends. Mouse has found love again and we get acquainted with his life. Gently, not rushed in any way.I love Ben, I looove Shawna who grew up to become a blend of the best and worst of her "family". I'm at peace with the end of this series unlike when I finished Sure of You and was very disappointed in the up in the air ending.
