    Oceans Apart

    In my personal opinion, this book is amazing. It is a very touching book that can be very inspiring. This book is mainly about a family who is composed of a father named Connor, Michele the mother and their little girls who are Susan and Elizabeth that live in Florida. This family is having problems with the two week vacation of a little boy named Max who is seven years old. This perfect family had never met Max and did not know about his existence. This boy was a result of an affair that Connor had in the past with a Hawaiian girl named Kiahna who died in a plane crash. In her will she clearly stated that she wanted Max to meet his dad and spend two weeks with him. This book teaches a very important life lesson. You need to forgive in able to love someone. Throughout the story you fall in love with some of the characters because the author gives very good explanations about their feelings. It also has a great ending which I believe make the book better.

    This book is a wonderful story about a little boy. Just when his life had looked so bleak he found love and acceptance.
    The author did a wonderful job of keeping the story alive and keep the reader wondering what was going to happen next. I could not put this book down until I knew this little boy was going to be ok. I loved all the characters, they all had such big hearts. I highly recommend this book. You are going to fall in love with this little boy!

    Touches the soul!

    This book is the best book I have ever read. It is gut wrenching and heart tearing, yet it touches your soul!. The love of a mother and the understanding of another is what true unconditional love is. This story embeds ideas to prepare for paths you may cross in your future.

    An inspirational tear-jerker!

    This book was wonderful! It is heartfelt, emotional, inspirational and believable. You can't help but get wrapped up in the story and in the characters lives and find yourself wanting it all to turn out for the best. For anyone who thinks they've got things rough, just read this story and see how God works in our lives and that he truly does not give us more than we can handle. I would highly recommend reading this book, just be sure you have plenty of time because once you open the cover, you won't want to put it down until the last page. VERY GOOD READ!

    Great read

    The book is wonderful. I was drawn in by the turmoil that the wife in the story must go through. Sometimes I was frustrated by her and her husband. You will not be disappointed by the writing or the characters.
