Really a great book on learning to forgive. However, it was written kind of weird and it took me about three chapters into to figure out who was talking, and who they were talking about. I also did not like the main character - I know she was going through a hard time, but she was still very annoying about how she dealt with everything. Also, it was an LDS book, but I didn't even know it until I was several chapters into it.

maybe it's just because I am expecting, but I had tears rolling down my face as I read this book. I haven't had a lot of true grief, especially not the traumatic kind, but the author does a good job of using the points of view of many characters to create this story. I really liked it an thought it was well-written.

This is an LDS author. I'm not saying it's a bad thing, just letting you know.

Now that I have finished this book I will say it has many of the reasons why I do not like to read LDS authors who write "doctrinal" novels. It wasn't as mushy as I expected but I really hope the next book the book group has lined up is not from an LDS author.

Recommends it for: LDS; people who have lost a child
Nicely done. I felt like the multiple viewpoints in the story were basically all saying the same things; I would have liked to see more plot twists and varied points of view. But it felt good to read, and the characters all have a way about making you care about them. And I admit to getting weepy at the end. Deals sensitively with some tough subjects.

Pretty good story about death of a child - LDS perspective - looked at how it affected multiple people. Not the best-written story, but it did get to me emotionally, too.

This writer definitely has potential. The story was good, just needed full editorial work. The typsetting was lacking as well. Boo to the publisher.
