This book is a gem. It's not the normal happy romance novel. This book is deep and powerful and it will move you. I could feel Charlotte's pain with the decisions that she had to make. It was heartbreaking and yet beautiful at the same time. This story isn't just about love between a man and a woman, but it is also the love story between a mom and her child. Charlotte made some choices that sent her on a difficult path in life. As humans we all make the wrong choice sometimes and things will get difficult, but we must keep living and try to make things better for ourselves. This story will touch your heart in many ways. As sad as the story was, it also had happy moments and made me smile. It was well written and a beautiful story that I had a hard time putting down. You will love Charlotte as well as some of the other characters. I would easily recommend this book.
This book went above and beyond of what I expected! It is a heart wrenching story, but beautifully and passionately written! The characters grabbed my attention quickly and my heart went out to Charlotte! Truly reminds me to be thankful of what God did for us by sending His Son!
I have to admit, I started this book and put it down for several weeks before trying again. Once I got about a fourth of the way into it, that's when I really grabbed a hold of me and I finished it by the next afternoon. It's not your everyday historical fiction with your typical ending. I think that this writer is talented and brings a fresh perspective to this type of book. Worth the read.
