This is a story of faith and love and self-sacrifice. For years, May gave of herself to this boy who could give absolutely nothing back, which also points to the value of human life. She prayed for God to give him some gift, and she pressed on. And eventually her prayers were answered in an amazing way. I was awe-struck by this story, and moved to tears at times.
Unfortunately, this story was hampered by poor organization. There are several chapters at the beginning giving May's life story, which is interesting, but has little to do with the rest of the book. It feels like a completely different story. Just because something is interesting doesn't mean it should be included. The information shared about savant syndrome (those with subnormal intelligence with islands of brilliance) is thrown in the midst of the narrative. The chapters near the end switches back and forth from third-person narration to first person as the author jumps between the time she didn't witness and the time she did.Read more ›
