This is one of the best of  Kristin Hannah's books that I have read. The story showed very strong emotions, very realistic situations, and highly believable characters. This book looks some things straight in the eye, like poverty and teenage pregnancy, making the reader want to help those that are suffering from either. The story will make you believe in the power of family and the power of love, and it will more than likely make you shed a few tears. Not really a light read, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Great read! I love stories of love lost and regained. Details and descriptions plus learning about what makes each character tick is what I have discovered makes me really like a book. Kristin Hannah knows how to do this!

This book tugged at my heart strings. I felt like I had a lot in common with Angie one of the main characters in the book.

Lauren one the other main characters is living a life that I could not imagine. She lives in a bad area. Her mother is an alcoholic and is never around. Her mother is always bringing men home. Lauren is always being told that she is a mistake. How awful to hear that.

Angie and Lauren meet,something magical happens. In an instant their lives change for the good and the bad. They are wonderful together. Angie's family takes her in with such love.

Get your tissues out,you will need them. Kristin Hannah does an amazing job. I loved loved this book. I recommend this book for so many reasons. Its true the things we do for love sometimes we won't stop at anything. Enjoy!!!!
