Beautiful emotional novel

I resonated most with how hard itvis to get the voices of family members out of your head.

Thorny Story

I enjoyed the story and how their lives, were so in twined together, it made for a very rocky story of highs and lows. I would love to know what happened to Donovan.

An okay story

The story was very descriptive but slow and somewhat boring. It left much to be desired. The graphic nature of the sexual abuse was hard to listen to although necessary. A good story but by far not my favorite.

Joy and sorrow share the same cup.

Gibran said the same cup that holds your joy also holds your sorrow. This is a story of hope and hopelessness. One of the saddest books I’ve ever heard or read. Will read more of her work. Marvelous performance.

Realistic!

This was an amazing, realistic love story. I would love to have a part 2 of this book. Well written and narrated!

I hope there is a part 2 to this story!

Ending leaves the reader unfulfilled and just hanging with a bunch of questions about the main characters. The story itself was a page turner. there seems to be lots of male bashing which I am tired of reading
