This book was beyond awful. I had heard so much about Richard Paul Evans and I was very excited to finally get my hands on one of his books... suffice it to say this will be the first and last book I ever pick up of his. I went into this expecting some type of Nicholas Sparks storyline... this pile of junk was ... not. This book was like a train wreck, yet I kept reading thinking, 'This HAS to get better' but noooo... it just continued to get worse. I hated myself for finishing this. And the ending? It was borderline offensive. I wouldn't recommend this book to a single person.
