This is a well written story with a lot of growth by the main characters. It grabs your heart and you will want to keep reading. I’m so glad this is just part 1 since I want to learn more of what happens.
The narrator, Anne Marie Damman does a wonderful job. Her narration helped me to really feel what the characters were going through.
