It’s not often that a book can move me to tears, but what struck me as rare was the author’s ability to not just evoke one emotion at a time within me, but her ability to have me feeling multiple emotions at once – smiling like a fool while I was crying, having my heart ache while feeling such hope, or feeling dread at what I knew was coming while being optimistic at what the future would hold.
Thank you Donna Fasano – this book is by far my most favorite read of the year and a true reminder of what is important in life and the fact that even though we may experience sadness, there is so much to be truly thankful for if we just open our hearts and minds to what is around us and live in the moment.
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I'm really glad to have been given the chance to read this book!
I loved reading this book! The story captivated me and warmed my heart so much (get the tissues ready you're definitely going to be needing them!)
Every moment from beginning and especially the ending is absolutely beautiful! I fell in love with the characters it's so hard not to .. especially the little girl! (what a charmer she is! lol)
The characters "Christy, Aaron, and Izzie take you on this absolutely amazing journey about a father doing everything he can for his daughter and a woman who was in the right place at the right time willing to help them out!
Beautiful, very well written, and it's a book I will definitely love to read again and again! I hope this review is helpful and that my fellow readers will enjoy this book just as much as I have!
There are many elements in play with this story, and not all of them are happy. Aaron has been both father and mother to his daughter Izzy for the past few years after her mother died. While that would be enough to tug at your heart: his determination to give her everything that a child with 2 parents would have, and trying to see she is well-adjusted and happy, Izzy is battling leukemia and does not have a particularly positive prognosis.
Izzy is just amazing, at eight years old she has had more piled into her life than most adults, and while she has those moments of worry and fear, her outlook and her attitude are incredibly positive. Smart and clever, with a nice side of ‘beyond her years’ Izzy has one big worry – what will happen to her father after she is gone. She wants to see him happy, with someone to take care of him, and she thinks that she can move this along with her wish – a ‘family’ Christmas with a ‘pretend’ Mommy and family to share in the day. Aaron is so delightfully determined that he speaks with the staff in the pediatric oncology unit to see if there are volunteers who will step up to give Izzy her wish.Read more ›
I started reading this book by Donna Fasano and it touched my heart because I can connect with the characters in this story.
The story is about a father, daughter, a wish list and a caring nurse. Izzie is very ill with cancer, she is an avid list maker and she has asked her father for a family Christmas with a make believe mommy as she lost her mum 2 years ago, and this is where the story starts with Aaron (the father) asking the staff at the hospital if anyone can help him give his daughter (Izzie), the family Christmas she wants. Christy (the nurse) steps forward and offers her assistance, to help Aaron help Izzie to tick off everything on her list.
I have to congratulate Donna Fasano on the compassionate way she has written this sad and beautiful love story, I read it in one sitting because I was drawn into this book. Emotion and love comes alive in these pages.
