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.

Wanting more!!

Loving Donovan left me wanting more of this story. I thought, "it can't end like this!" Perhaps there will be another story to follow.

Really good!!

It's sad how people can plant seeds of doubt in an individual's mind. Instead of that individual going with their gut or how they feel, they go through hearing that person's word! Great story, but sad to see all the control one has on another.

Horrible Narrator

Wonderful book, but the narrator is awful. She swallows loudly, smacks her teeth. Disgusting . Very annoying when listening with earphones. Had to return the book. AWFUL.

Sad

Why wasn’t he honest with her. So much pain, sorrow, secrets. Be strong for others.

Great story

the story was very full. There were a lot of characters and there was so much detail give it to the characters you really felt like you knew them. The ending I thought was too abrupt I wish there was a little bit more closure.

Good Read / Horrible Ending

The ending was horrible, it left the reader hanging unless there is going to be a part II
