This is the type of story that grabs the reader on the first couple of pages and doesn't let go. As I read further and further, I kept wanting to find out more about the main character and the sub-characters. I was moved to tears a couple of times. I think this story is well told and well-written. Worth a read to all.

The book was recommended to me so I gave it a try. I was surprised by
the author's ability to describe feelings so well. He also grabbed my
attention quickly. It was one of those books that you look forward to
settling in with each day and returning to the characters. Either he has
had many experiences or has a vivid imagination to encompass so many
life styles. I wonder if some of this is autobiographical. In any case,
I recommend reading this book to all readers. You will probably find a
character who reminds you of someone...perhaps yourself.

An unusual format, I wondered how this book would play out...whether or not it could keep my interest til the end. I was delighted to discover the series of vignettes compelling, emotional, challenging and very well written. The book introduces the reader to the main character and then one by one, to a dozen or more characters whose lives face challenges and require serious decisions and choices. The reader will have to determine if they agree with each choice but will most certainly agree that they will find at least one character with whom they can identify.
I heartily recommend this book to everyone. But have a care...tears will probably fall.
