I read an ARC of this book and it is truly a masterpiece! It is great on so many levels! The characters are real and extremely likeable. Raymond has so many wonderful qualities, and Mrs. G is a gem. Their relationship is precious, and it is easy to fall in love with the supporting cast. The setting and plot are relevant and they ring true. Catherine Ryan Hyde shares so many valid messages and reasons to feel hopeful during these trying times. Although I have read it once, I have pre-order the e-book, and will listen to the audible version as well. It's that good! My new favorite by this remarkable author!
