Absolutely beautiful! I read many a page with tears of emotion. A lovely book, I want to keep and cherish but it is too good and should be shared with a friend. If you are looking for a gift for a friend or loved one, this would be a great book. I was so very fortunate to receive this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

They have been advised to keep a gratitude ...more
