First you should know this book has adult situations and language. With that said… The storyline is a ‘grabber’. By saying grabber, I mean it will grab you and pull you into the lives of Ava and Abby. You will find yourself visually astounded by the authors words as she weaves you completely into the story. Feelings of hope, courage, love, loss, disappointment, and protection overwhelm the reader. Though I did not care for some of the language use, I still could not stop reading and continued to the end. Oh… and the end is not the end! You will be on pins and needles waiting for the next book in the series…I promise you that!!!
