This is a masterpiece of a novel. I love the authors voice and how well she writes this book. I’m always mentioning, when authors ask what I’m looking for in a book, that I want more books beyond the wedding. Perhaps it’s not as romantic, but I retally enjoy reading books that have life lessons and are realistic….books to which I can relate.
There are several things in this book to which I relate, the biggest one really is adoption as we adopted a child that required much time and care. There is much to love about this read.
There is a twist in the book that I still am not sure exactly what I thought. One thing in particular I didn’t like, BUT this book evokes so much emotion that I as a reader was totally invested in these characters ( and kids in a book- I LOVE that!).
The twist is really totally brilliant and skillfully done on the authors part…but it doesn’t feel so much that way on the readers part as the reader makes their way through the plot twist. If a writer can pull so many emotions from a story, though…it’s gotta be a good one. Whether the reader is perfectly happy with the ending or not, I just had to give my rare five stars because I was confused, a bit upset, yet somewhat happy at the same time…and those emotions have changed as I’ve thought on the novel. This is a book I will be thinking about for a long time to come. This novel is really exceptionally done!
I highly recommend you read this book…and I’m so looking forward to reading everyone’s thoughts on this read. I’ve never read a book like this one.
I received this book from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
