I love reading Angela Hunt. Her books always center around issues that we don't often talk about enough. This book deals with gambling and mental illness (bi-polar). The main character is a writer/author so you also get some great writing tips sprinkled throughout the storyline. LOTS going on in this novel; actually, a novel within a novel. One of the few novels that I've wanted to read with a highlighter in my hand.
If you are raising teen to early 20's children this book may hit home! It is a unique story in a story that really helped me to feel I am not alone in this child rearing process and that God is still in control! I thoroughly enjoyed it!!
