Where do I begin? To put it simply, this book is amazing. After falling into to it, I could not put it down. It held me from the first page till the last. It gave me something different to see.
The plot line of this book is just wonderful. Looking back at this book, I must have wanted to cry from anger several times. Ms. Harrington gives the reader so much emotions, secrets a little bit at a time. It’s like following the bread crumbs down a road leading to something greater, better!
The characters of this book had my heart. I love that while the characters faced some real life tragedy, Ms. Harrington caught the redemption of the characters spot on. The reader clearly sees the growth and change of them, but also coming into a peace they deeply needed. I adored that the love interest feel so much deeper then what I expected but also gave me more. The way the love interest collapse and came back together had me smiling. I love that while the ending it not an all together “Happily Ever After”, but the characters are where they need to be.
Over all, this is an amazing book. I loved that it gave the reader a whole new insight of thoughts and feelings. The characters are realistic and are plagued by everyday real world tragedy. Do you want a book that will steal your heart away? Read this.
I give it 5 BITES!
