There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I enjoyed the book tremendously and was able to get past the secrets. But the book emphasises the love Alex had for her daughter and the friendship, love and compassion they all had for each other. There is no way a dying woman was not going to make sure her daughter was taken care of. I realize it can happen, but not based on the character description of Alex. This was a huge let down for me.
This was the first book that I have read of Betta's, enjoyed it very much, have another book in my Que to read in the future. This book takes place in New Mexico, Kentucky and Colorado.
I try not to be political in my reviews. But, in this book, I must be. If there is anyone out there who is considering an Abortion, especially using the reason of possibly having a Mentally Disabled child, you certainly need to take the time to read this book before doing so. Ok, I will get off of my Soap Box.
This author takes the subject of Abortion, and beautifully shows it from both perspectives in a very diplomatic way that certainly gives her readers something to think about for a very long time.
You basically have 4 women who have a very touching and long lasting bond to each other, and in the middle of this bond is a very loving Mentally Disabled Child, who you will wrap your arms and heart around.
I have to say the Betta certainly surprised me with the last part of this Saga, I didn't see that happening, I definitely thought it was going to take a different angle, possibly a lesbian relationship, I certainly was wrong!
I guess the only Con I saw about the book, was that it seemed to me to be pretty long in parts, not that I was bored at all, but took more time than I expected to get from some steps to others.
I am blessed to have a relationship like Bridgette and Alexis had. As I get older I have learned to appreciate that relationship more and more.
This book is certainly much different than some of the same ol' same ol' books out there, certainly worth the money and time to read it.
She heads to Colorado to visit her grandmother but only stays for the holidays before continuing her journey for enlightenment. Driving through Kentucky in a raging rainstorm she finds herself going off the road and into an old creek. Her car is partially submerged and she has to climb out the window and claw her way up the bank back to the highway. With no traffic about she decides to walk back to a small diner she had passed. Of course by the time she gets there she is soaking wet and very bedraggled and the diner is closed. She peers in the window while knocking on the door. Finally someone answers and listens to her story. She immediately made her come in to get dry and warm. The woman’s name is Alex and she appears to be the answer to her prayers. She invites her into her home for the night and even finds clothes for her to wear after her shower. She promises to call the garage in the morning to have her car taken care of. Alex’s household also contains her 10 year old daughter Eden and long time friend and companion Eda Mae. These people change her life and help her find answers to the questions that drove her from New Mexico.
What those questions were and how these ladies helped her you will find out yourself when you read this wonderful book.
Bridgette will be tested and lose what she finally found. She has to fight to get back that peace in a place she finally calls home.
It's A full circle and Bridgette keeps a promise that helps her move forward and return to the writing that she loved and was afraid of.
A beautiful gift from her once in a lifetime friend.

The good- beautiful cover, A beginning that grabbed my attention and kept me interested to find out what would happen next, believable characters, the bonds of true friendship,a nice setting with the diner, small town....😊
The negatives- the discussion about Bridgette's abortion, with Alex didn't ring true. When Alex said "you did what you had to do" more than once, it wasn't in character with how she had been portrayed. Bridgette did have choices, it wasn't something she HAD to do.
The part when Alex knew she was seriously ill but STILL did nothing to legally insure that her daughter would remain happy and at home in case she didn't live, also did not ring true. Why would she continue to remain married to a total jerk like Cal, knowing he had little interest in their daughter and her future? That really seemed far fetched. That would have been priority one, if I had allowed myself to end up in a similar situation.
This story could have been wonderful and memorable from beginning to end. Unfortunately, it fell short on believability in several ways. That for me, ruined it.😕
An Absolute Must Read for everyone. LOVED IT!
