Very good yarn that looks deep into our own needs and the selfishness that we don\'t like to admit we all have. Sad and though provoking.

This was a wonderful book. I couldn't put it down. Having just lost a parent, I thought it would be hard for me to read. But her characters were right on with what I was feeling. I'll have to read more of this author.

The first half is superior to the second half in my opinion, but it is still an overall impressive book about redemption, forgiveness and discovering the truth about what we thought we already knew.

I enjoyed this book. The story was deep and flowed well. I could really picture the characters and identify with them during the story. I recommend it.

An excellent well written book. Better than the movie. This was so poignant and real that it was painful to read at times, having gone through similar experience. Anyway great book!
