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!
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.
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.
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.
You cannot read this story and not be affected by the story and characters Impact of this book will stay with you for days to come after you read it. Highly recommendeed
