This is a beautifully written debut novel. It is two stories that eventually merge into a poignant conclusion. The main character, Matt, has an essence of goodness and a heart that makes the book unforgettable. My only regret was that this book ended. I will remember it for a long time, which is surely the measure of a truly good book. I look forward to reading more by this very talented author.

Good story but a frustrating ending that brings more questions than it answers. Disappointing.
