This is a powerful and moving story of mistakes and forgiveness. It makes you examine your own life to see if any forgiveness is due. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. A great read!
OMG I couldn't even put this down. I don't own this book but it is still on my wish list and I'll keep it there so I can own it for my library. You will laugh and cry when reading this book. Also want to mention that it is a clean book for those looking for clean.
This is my first experience with the reading of a book by Kristin Hannah. The book kept me interested all the way through, but I found it very depressing most of the time. Life is not always a happy party though, and a lot of issues covered in this book were very serious issues that parents of teenagers might find helpful. One review mentioned that it read like a Young Adult book, but I disagree...although teenagers might gain some insight by reading it. It reminded me of one of my favorite authors, Jodi Picoult who tends to write about controversial issues, and I intend on reading more books by Ms. Hannah in the future.
I read this book in one sitting. I loved the first half of the book. I found the characters interesting and the story believable and "relate-able." The second half, however, seemed a little rushed to me ending too quickly in a nice neat package. I would have liked to see that part of the story more developed and explored. Overall, a good book though.
I couldn't put it down. I really enjoyed this read from the beginning. I highly recommend it.
