I really loved this book. It is a tear jerker. It is about a couple who go through the loss of a child. As I read this book, I felt as if I was sharing in their grief, particurally the mothers grief. Each character is coping in their own way. I cried at 3 different points in this book. I have never had a loss like this, but it happens, and even though this was a novel, it felt very real. Even though it is sad, the story ends the way that you want it to.
I had never read anything by this author and picked this book up to read only because the two characters were Samuel and Ann (my husband's and my names). Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed this story and am looking forward to reading more of what this author has written!
Loved this book - very moving.
Beautiful story that truly captures the struggles between a husband and a wife in real-life situations.
I love the "realness" of Nichol's characters in this book. They are imperfect people who find grace and mercy in Christ through a series of difficult circumstances. The Lord really used it in my life at the time I read it. Not fluffy Christian reading which I really appreciated!
