I'm skimming through a lot of this book cos frankly, not much to hold my interest. I've already thought about putting it aside (on page 119 currently) or at the least, picking up another book to read between readings of this one. You'll excuse me if my head hits the table?

Hugh and his wife Laura lost their only child - young Michael. He got hit by a vehicle as he was getting off the school bus. This story is a day in the life of Hugh and Laura as they struggle to make sense of it all. This story
A very in depth look at heartache and loss. Bret Lott is a talented author! Glad that I made the effort to get this hard-to-find book.
