Wonderful story..very inspiring! Story shows that even with death and sadness that the Good Lord has a reason for it, and will show you the way back to learn to live and smile yet once again. Very well written and will tug at your heartstrings....
A tender and heartwarming story of a widow who thinks she has no reason to live and of the man and child who give her the strength and reason to resume her life. The first novel I have read by this author but I will be looking for more of her books.
