My Review...

So I had postponed reading this book because I knew it was going to be heavy and oh! boy was it! I am such a fan of Charles Sheehan-Miles and like his other books they all have a deep beauty yet realness to the stories.  This one was so beautiful yet so heart breaking. Just re-thinking about puts me on the verge of tears. 

It is so hard to do reviews when you don't want to say to much because to get the depth of this story you really have to read it without any preconceived notions. 

The beauty and profoundness of Ray and Carrie is so awe inspiring. 
Carrie has always been the rock for her family and finally with Ray she has someone to take care of her. 

Carrie & Ray's love story was a very turbulent journey but for them love was enough. 
Then OMG did that really happen!!! (insert the ugly cries and loads of tissues they will be needed with this story)
This story was so heart wrenching yet poetically wonderful.  Without ruining the story all I can say is it was so beautifully written with so much emotion and love.

This story is part of a series but can very easily be read as a stand alone. I so recommend this book but make sure to stock up on tissue and possibly alcohol to help ease the pain. Thank you Charles for such an amazing story.
