A story about love, but mostly a story about family.

Crick fell in love with Deacon when he was just a little kid. Deacon was his hero and his family, and later he also became his crush. Crick's mother married a bigoted man and life at home wasn't well for Crick who was part Mexican and never good enough. Deacon and his father took him in on the weekends and became his better family. When Crick came out in his early teens his biological family threw him out and he moved in on the farm with his better one permanently. After waiting for a lifetime for Deacon to love him a simple misunderstanding makes Crick sign up for the army. Two years apart takes a toll on both men, in ways neither of them could ever have anticipated. Despite the strain new friendships are made and the family that started with Deacon and Crick grows bigger, because no matter the hardships what they've always have had plenty of is love.

It is a wonderful and heart breaking book. It encompasses everything life has to offer, sweet love, blood boiling passion, bitter tears, spilled blood, terrible sickness, the miracle of birth, the grief of death, the taste of fear, inexplicable hate, and everything in between. It shows the importance and power of family, whether one created on your own or one given to you by birth. It tells a story about how good people are rarely rewarded enough, but how when they are it's sweeter than anything else in the world. IT shows the importance of never giving up the fight, and the value of keeping your promises. This book really makes you believe in the power of love.

Very lovely, very much worth the read!
