Loved it! Gerri never disappoints. Love all her books.
As always, Gerri Hill never fails to deliver an excellent read. Her characters have such depth. This is a beautiful story of loss and love.
Very well written
The story is a wonderful tale of two women and a young boy conquering their grief, brought about by familial losses. As the women grow closer the tension between the two of them practically makes sparks fly off the page. Well done!
What a great read......as usual.
