Great message in this book. Leave the past where it is. No need at all to bring the past hurt into today's healing. The main character learned that the hard way but I'm very happy that things got better for her by the end of the book.

I loved this book. This book proves that what takes years to build ca be destroyed overnight. The main character reminded me of my mom.
