4.5 Stars

I loved the writing is this little novel. Such a sweet story. Sad. Pathetic. Uplifting. Inspiring.

I am glad to know Lily, May, June and August. The Daughters and their wonderful approach to life. Tragedy begats Life.

The premise of the story is written on the inside cover of the book, so no need for me to repeat it. The story is life itself, so read and enjoy. Just like me. :)
