I loved this story on fanfiction. It was unflinchingly brutal and honest. The only thing that disappointed me was that when it was published I found that the story got watered down and lost its edge.

In the original fanfiction edition, the last part of the story (after they split up) was gutwrenching and graphic to say the least, but it was so real and you totally understood why Sophie was so messed up. In my opinion, the story lost some of what made it great in my eyes.

So I've finally finished these series ,took me awhile but it's not because I didn't like the books but simply because of lack of time to read .
This last book was very good,you can see a lot of character growth in both Sophie and Elliott,the ending was very hopeful and inspiring in many ways ,overall good conclusion to the story. Definitely putting these on my favorite shelf !
My only issue - I really felt like both of them already had to deal with so so much pain emotionally and physically so th

A box of tissues will probably be required for reading the emotionally charged fourth and final book in N.K. Smith’s Old Wounds series, Where All Things Will Grow. Picking up from the end of the third book, Weight of the World, troubled teenagers Elliott and Sophie are still taking one step forward and two steps back in their relationship, with both finally admitting they love each other even though they are still very broken individuals.

The appealing cover, showing a fresh new shoot, gives hop

I love this series! I was hesitant to read the last book and I waited a week or two after read the others to finally read it. The subject matter is hard, but so real. Although the particular issues Elliott and Sophie had might not be real, but it reminded me of some very real cases I came across as a former psych nurse both pediatric and adults. I hurt for both Elliot and Sophie. I was so happy that they had "time apart" to work on their issues independently. I cried at their break through momen ...more

Oh the emotional rollercoaster this book was! I felt so happy for them but at the same time a part of me just wanted to scream at the end. Actually, of the whole series, this book seemed to almost frustrate me. Maybe I just simply wanted them to have some good times before all the craziness but I felt the same way Sophie did towards Elliot...that the poor boy could only take so much. I guess I just figured they had enough obstacles to work through and then halfway through the book...well...I won ...more

So the first book got me hooked on this series the next three I read in one day. I couldnt stop avoided all the house work the kids well not totally but my mind was on the books for sure. This series left me crying and feeling heartbroken but at the same time joy. Joy that i know my kids dont have to go thru what Sophia and Elliot went thru. Yes i know that the story was made up but it was so believable that my heart ached every time some new information came out and my respect for therapist tha ...more

This was a brilliant end to a wonderful series.

Even though the subject matters were very heavy I really liked reading them and glad to see that there is a light at the end of their very dark tunnel.

Wow! This series is simply amazing. I love how the books bring out so many emotions in me and that it tells both Elliott's and Sophie's story. I have never experienced so much pain and anger, but also happiness by reading. I loved it. I really, really loved it.
This book was better than book 2 & 3. I forced myself to finish the series. I'm glad I did. Tough story line, but not the worse I've read. The series did remind me to keep my eyes open in my line of work.

I found this final book in the series very intense and at times found it hard to read and was pleased that it wasnt the normal happily ever after finish. I did enjoy this series but i'm ready for a bit more of a light read.

Liked how she expanded and was more detailed in the ending but was disappointed she didn't take the same angsty raw path to get there, it was kind of anti-climatic to me
