This was a great book. I had just finished a REALLY great book right before picking this one up, so I found it slightly slow to start. But I soon got into it within the first few chapters. The writing style is very sweet and simple, I felt, and the descriptions let you really feel like you are there. The author does a fabulous job of getting the reader involved with the characters and feeling what they feel.
As a trigger warning, I highly suggest that any woman who has had difficult miscarriages and/or has had trouble conceiving think twice before reading this book. I can imagine that this would be an extremely emotional read for someone like that. Reader beware. It is sobering enough for someone who has never gone through that type of pain.
It’s actually a pretty realistic story, and gives the feeling that it could have really happened somewhere, at some time in the past. The neat thing about the ending is that it had a LOT of possibilities. The author did a good job of not letting you know what was up her sleeve for the end, and I found the last couple chapters somewhat anxiety-causing. Haha. At one point I think I did actually flip to the back (which I have a pretty strict rule for myself that I do NOT usually allow myself to do that) because I wanted to find out one particular detail that was worrying me.
Anyway...overall a great read. A sobering read. A lifelike story. Kudos to the author—nice job.
