At first I almost put this book down and was going to forget it because it is so sad at the beginning. I'm glad I didn't. I ended up really enjoying it and it was definitely a diversion from the murder/mysteries I usually read.

This book by David Baldacci was quite a departure from others I have read by him. This story was truly what I would call a tear-jerker and I loved it. There is love, tragedy, sorrow, defeat, and hopelessness but in the end there is love again and a family moves on. It was very enjoyable to read.

Another amazing book by David Baldacci! Not his normal venue, or mine for that matter. As much as I would never admit it myself, you might find yourself tearing up more than once during this story. But one of the best reads for me this year regardless.

I enjoyed this book. I've also read The Christmas Train by this author. I enjoyed the character's in the book. Especially Mikki. It had a twist of events in the story which made it a page turner for me. Look forward to reading more of his books.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am a big fan of David Baldacci and this one is a totally different kind of book for him to have written. It was more in the line of Nicholas Sparks, another great writer. I hope David Baldacci will write more books like this one. It is a sensitive, family story that will have you from the beginning to the end.

I don't read Baldacci's usual genre so I can't compare it to any of those books. It's not on the same level as Wish You Well. Not a bad read but a little too Nicholas Spark's like for me.
