really liked it

To hear someone talk about the day they died is a little freaky! However, the author did a great job of building this character that it was so believable! Then as she followed her family members through their lives, the one she would never have, it was so believable. Her father's pain, her sister's rebellion, her brother's hatred of his mother, the mother "finding" herself, the grandmother and her eccentricity. It all tied together and made sense.

When I read books like this, believability is a big factore for me. I found this book to be believable about what it would be like to look down from Heaven on your loved ones. It's sort of like the rich man who wanted Lazarus to warn his brothers.

Overall, I thought this book had a well developed plot, had great characterizations and the ending was perfect (and it's not often I say that!).

Love and Blessings!
