I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At first, I liked it but then it just kept getting better and better and I couldn’t put it down because I was so engaged in the characters stories. It was inspiring, heartfelt, encouraging, moving, touching and hopeful. The author moved from past to present, back and forth to weave it all together and it was perfect, not confusing like some books I’ve read that moved around in time. There are actually great lessons for life even though it is a fictional novel. Great book and I’m suggesting it to friends and family!
