This is the first book I have read from this author. She did an amazing job! I loved the story line and characters. When you realize the loss that was suffered and how much Kaye has to forgive, you can't but help fall in love with her. You realize in the end how much you have to forgive others since God has forgiven you! If you don't forgive, you let those who hurt you win. Life, love, and forgiveness are what you will get from this book!

It started slow but picked up enough to keep me reading. I was curious to see what had brought the heroine to the coffee shop so distraught. The early history dragged a bit. So much sadness and disappointment for poor Kaye. I had a feeling how things would end and I guessed correctly. At least she did get her happy ending.
