A mothers goodbye
This story hit me really hard. It takes a whole lot to bring me to tears but I found myself sobbing....what a sad but beautiful ending.
I'm not sure why I didn't know more about this author! This book was heartbreakingly amazing. I read The secrets we keep first and while it was a good book, it had nothing on this amazing story.
