My Thoughts...

A mother and son who will never be the same after this life altering mess. This was such an emotional read and as a mother who lost her only child I was drawn in and could not turn the pages fast enough.
This is a must read for all mothers. You will not put this book down until you have rad the very last page. You will still be thinking about the Mother and son long after you finish reading this one.
4 stars and one I recommend.
