This was an enjoyable read - nothing deep or exceptional though. I can see this being converted into a movie - which i think would be worth seeing as well. It's a book about second chances, miracles and letting go. Good summer read!

This is not the kind of book I would usually enjoy. It sounds syrupy (and it kind of is) and it had deep meaning (and it does). But I loved this book. The writing is... well... it's lyrical. I read this one quickly, couldn't put it down. This is actually the first book by Ben Sherwood I've read. I think I'll have to seek out that 747 one I hear a lot about...

Definitely a must read book. I think it's one of those "it's nice to think that way" kind of thing. For me, the story was just really well done. I will say I saw the Tess thing about 3000 miles away ;)

Read this one!

I really enjoyed this book; it wasn't depressing but certainly sad in parts. It is well written and quick reading.

This was a great book! One of the reviews on the back says "mystical and magical" and that is exactly what it is. This books give you a magical look at how our loved ones reach out to us after they have passed away. It's a great way to comfort someone who has recently loss someone close. It is a great fantasy nove. I would highly recommend it to everyone.

This book caught my eye in the bookstore after I had seen the movie trailer on tv. I wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading but I was curious as to how the story would unfold. The story is about brothers and the bond they share... their relationship seems a little too perfect but maybe it is just the ideal. As Charlie grows up the story becomes more about loving and living. The more I read this story the more I enjoyed it!

Note: If you are Nicholas Sparks fan, read this book and get the Nicholas Sparks feel on a whole new level!
