Thankfully this review is being written on a laptop and not paper, because after reading this story last week my tears are just now stopping enough to type. My heart is heavy with sadness. But my heart also has room for hope. This story hits close to home, as I have school aged children as well as a gun in our home. Of course, it is safely put away from these teen-aged children. This story really touches on a few different, hard to talk about situations. Situations we see in the real world. The names may have been changed but this could be a story about you, me or even someone we know.
I have read Montgomery before but never have I ever read such a well written story. Never has any of her books made my heart feel like it does now.
Please go buy this book, even if you can’t read it just yet. Have it waiting for you when you need to let your tears fall. Have it knowing that there is a fantastic story waiting when you are ready. You won’t be sorry.
