I was pleasantly surprised with this book. It makes definite, faith-based arguments for some very modern topics without being "preachy". It also tells the story of how a "perfect" family deals with their grief. This is my first book by this author, and I am inclined to look for more books by her.

This was a real good book. I got aggravated with the main character because of her narrow-mindedness; she could dispense advice, but she refused to follow it herself. She learned a lot of hard lessons along the way, and I found myself in her actions more than once.
Angela Hunt never disappoints me. This is another wonderful book about listening to that still small voice, obeying and maintaining the connection once you've established a relationship with God. Her books are always real and I can always relate to them in a very human way in some aspect. Super read.
I had read Angela Hunt's The Note, and was not impressed, but this book floored me! Ms. Hunt tackles some really tough topics in this book and does it in a way that leaves you wanting and wondering for more. I never thought I would even be tempted to go down certain paths, but this book made me wonder ... I found myself hurting and yearing with the characters. Very well done!
