“[I] recommend [this book] to anyone looking for vivid writing, layered, interesting characters, and a story that’s original, moving, and compelling.” J.A. Martinez
“Beautiful conclusion to a journey of a mother and her child. It is a story of dealing with deep hurts, healing, forgiveness, and hope. Though the central characters are the mother and her son Joey, every character is richly multi-dimensional. Each has flaws and strengths. I found myself cheering for and hoping for the person who in the first book had caused so much pain. This story also shows the love between siblings, and growing trust.” M.L. Farb, author
