While this isn't one of my favorites by RJG, it is still a well-crafted, deeply emotional and personal story worth reading for her fans, fans of the genre, or those experiencing a similar situation. The beginning of the book felt rushed, as Erin learns of the first of her father's strokes and quickly travels to his side. Jump to a year and a half later, we witness Sierra and Jordan's wedding before Erin learns that she must rush to his side again following a more devastating stroke. From that point forward, the book settles in to a better rhythm, showcasing Erin's struggles during her father's last days.

Part of my "problem" with the book probably lies in my age, which is definitely below the target. I most likely would have waited longer to read it had it not been connected to Sierra, and those passages didn't disappoint.
