"We don't want to tell you what happens in this book.
It is a truly special story and we don't want to spoil it.
Nevertheless, you need to know enough to buy it, so we will just say this:
This is the story of two women. Their lives collide one fateful day, and one of them has to make a terrible choice, the kind of choice we hope you never have to face. Two years later, they meet again--their story starts there...
Once you have read it, you'll want to tell your friends about it. When you do, please don't tell them what happens. The magic is in how the story unfolds."
The back of the book is exactly right--I don't feel that there's much I can tell you about this book without ruining the story and the way it all unfolds. I can tell you that it deals with hard subject matter, and wasn't always pleasant to read, but was also important to read because of how uncomfortable and sad it made me. Also, it was somehow still beautifully written through and through. I can tell you that I finished it in two days, and probably drove Justin crazy by carrying it around with me everywhere we went and reading it every spare minute I had.
Goodness sakes, I'm thrilled at how many awesome ratings I've been able to post recently. I've truly loved most of the recent books I've read in the past couple of weeks!
