Review by CaroTheLibrarian
PLUS - * Beautifully written, with likeable, believable characters.* The front cover said it would make me cry and smile. It did both! * It's a story of loss and healing, anger and forgiveness, which could end up beng trite or sentimental but never is.MINUS - * Can't think of anything. Read it!OVERALL - * Highly, highly recommended. A powerful and ultimately life affirming story.
Review by rata
A very emotive book that gives you an insight into grief and grieving process of a family and friends affected by a tragic event. I liked the way the author introduced the various characters and their way of coping with this tragic car accident. Well written and enjoyable from the start to the end. Ending was great in that i did not expect Aubrey to stay with Gram, but liked the way the author finished the story with everyone's emotional needs being met to some degree.
