"Forever love" is a powerful statement that sums the tale of this novel. The story is so sad at times, comfortingly humorous at others, and warming to the heart at others. I really enjoyed this read. The child who has no last name and who doesn't know who he is is an innocent who loves sincerely and without restraint. Mitch becomes his father by default when Leonard's mother disappears. He finds himself growing increasingly attached to the boy whose eye problems stem from being born prematurely and become more serious as he grows. Mitch learns to be a father through experience guided by the love of a small boy who grows under his tutelage into a sensitive teenager and later, a man with a family of his own.
