★★★★★ Whoa. I’d heard this book was very good, but it surpassed even my expectations. There is so much more here than meets the eye. The characters are nothing out of the ordinary – at first. But as I turned the pages they developed a depth and uniqueness that is not often found in this type of publication. Yes, I’ve heard the set-up before; nevertheless, Ms. Dolan managed to make these characters have their own distinct personalities and experience individual growth after spending time with one another. Truly a story of the power of unconditional love. I cried in two places and gobbled the book down whole last night in one sitting.
Definitely a book for my keeper shelf. I’ll be looking for more by this “new-2-me” author.
