Cafe Lily's Review:
Powerful. If someone asked me to sum up this book with just one word - powerful would be my choice. I had no idea what to expect when I started reading this book and I certainly wasn't prepared for the emotional ups and downs, but this book was impossible to put down once I started it.
This book made me think long and hard and many times, while reading it, I tried to put myself in both Dayna and Tamara's place. This storyline was completely believable and relevant and I appreciate that the author didn't overdo the emotions in this book, but kept the plot very believable. This is a story of unimaginable grace, love and forgiveness. I highly recommend it!
