Rice uses 8 main characters to look at how we struggle with emotions which hold us together at the same time that they push us apart. Terminal illness is the catalyst to explore how we behave when those we love either don't live up to expectations, or exceed our expectations. This book is an emotional roller coaster while it entertains and satisfies. If you've ever lost a loved one you might recognize yourself here. Although medical details seem unlikely, the relationships ring true. I really enjoyed this book and am about to go look for more by Luanne Rice.
A tightly paced story that is hard to put down...Rice's message remains a powerful one: the strength of precious family ties can ultimately set things right.
I found this book extremely sad. It is about a woman who has had cancer and starts to rebuild her life. She falls in love but her future is very uncertain.
Sucks you in and won't release you - Excellent!
This was a real tearjerker so grab tissues once you get to the end! Was a hard book to put down. Love books that make me want to read non-stop & this was one of those books!!!
