Marci has given her readers another beautiful story. This story continues Carol/Caroline’s journey of grief, pain, love and forgiveness. You will need a tissue as this story will take you in an emotional journey. Fantastic book - cannot wait see where the next book in the series takes us.
There just aren't enough stars in this world to give this book. Five just doesn't cut it. This book was an emotional rollercoaster for me to read. I found myself putting it down for a few minutes here and there because it was too hard emotionally to read. My heart just shattered. Carol's relationship with her mother, Judith is so similar to my relationship with my mother. Marci has a way of writing that is so close to the truth. Carol's journey into healing is raw and gut wrenching but, is absolutely beautiful. To watch her heal and try to repair her relationship with her mother is beautiful, real and one of the best reads that I've ever read. Just as good if not better than the first book. A book that will leave you drained but satisfied. You won't be disappointed. So grab a tissue box and follow Carol of her journey.
