Oh my what a beautiful story Westlake shares with us. This was such an emotional read.
I loved the stories that were woven in as well as Westlakes story.
In a world where we need more grace so bad, this is a phenomenal book.
Just want to give you heads up you will need a box of tissues with this one. But you will also laugh and finish this book with a huge happy heart.
I gave this book 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by Wynn Wynn Media for my honest review.
