Read in June, 2010

It was working together as a family that enabled them to overcome the adversity that came their way. Their father died as a result of hypothermia after rescuing a woman and her dog from an icy pond. Their mother was a diabetic and she died of insulin shock a few years later. The three boys were on their own and their oldest brother, Ty’ree, worked to provide for his brothers. Charlie was the rebel, the troublemaker, and he had been in a youth detention center for robbing a convenience store. They were fighting to survive the tragedies they had endured and to become the men their mother would rejoice in.

This book shows the power of love in a family that endures beyond death. The young men remembered their mother and the love she had for them and it moved them to press forward. I liked the book as it illustrates that love can conquer the evil that surrounds our children.
