I couldn t even get thru the first chapter It was slow and very difficult to read I found myself having to go back and reread paragraphs, b c I felt like I had missed something I didn t know when the author shifted between the past and the present I tried to give it a second chance and get thru chapter one, but it just didn t make the cut.

I didn t like this book at ALL I thought the message was good however I believe the characters were underdeveloped I felt like the story was missing several pieces The funny thing is I ve had this book for several years and could never get past page one and now I know why the book was HORRIBLE As for the message, I was touched but I coulda went to church and got the message Sorry but this book was not for me.
Okay book for the happily ever after genre.
For May Christian Fiction Weddings Woman starting her own business, falling in love again with childhood sweetheart A little disjointed and revealed backstory at strange times.
