I really enjoyed the first three stories in this book. The last one was a bit more difficult for me to get into and had several grammatical and spelling errors, which bothered me a bit. Overall a great read!

This book consists of 4 short stories. It is a lite read, but still heartwarming. There was only one story in the book that I didn't really enjoy. The book is filled with a lot of editing errors that can be distracting. But because there were poignant nuggets of truth woven into the stories, the editing can be overlooked.
