I fell in love with Graham, the father who had MS. This book had great characters and their lives were so interwoven with each other thru the past and the present. It touches on a lot of subjects and really makes you think what you would do in those circumstances. Lots of life lessons in this book....how to handle things thru music and laughter and most of all love.
