“Sometimes…I think maybe you saved my life.”
This was a difficult read but one that I am so happy I persevered with it and finished it. The subject matter is very difficult but the author handled it beautifully and the emotional depth was something I truly felt. I really connected with Sean and Megan and was rallying for them the whole way,
It was a bit disconcerting with the age of Sean but once again, the way the author handled the story made you accept him and his past.
This book definitely had me thinking the next day. A moving and heartfelt story.
