    I kept waiting for this book to gain some momentum & then it abruptly ended. The premise was good but in the end it didn’t do it for me. Found the narrators voice annoyingly unpleasant which made me dislike the main character entirely.

    This book is amazing. It s such a heartfelt genuine story that touched upon many subjects as to what is really important in life. And nails the truth. As I lay in bed on Mother's Day with 5 kids I hear making noise, I listened feeling no aches and pains, only held on tightly to the authors words. Now I'm sad the book is over. It will be a hard act to follow. Angie in Atlanta.
