What would you do if you found out that you couldn’t win against cancer? Would you tell your family how bad it was? How about your children? What would you tell them and how? Not quite an easy answer, and one Megan has to fight with herself over.
This is a very emotional read that had me crying through most of it. I usually give warnings toward the end of the review, but this one needs to be explained at the beginning. This book had me hooked at the very beginning. The writer kept me guessing while dropping hints of what the problem was without being too vague. I knew there was a sickness and had a good idea, but the author was talented and pulling me along. The story was not so much about the sickness and the reaction to it. This was a story about people and all their multi-colored facets.
The characters were extremely interesting. They drew you in and made you feel their pain, fear, and love. You were one with them. You were in their heart and souls. That alone had me not wanting to the put book down.
In a way this book is also a mystery. Each of the characters slowly reveals their skeletons hidden in the deepest parts of their closets. For years they have carried heavy burdens that has caused heartache and pain. Those skeletons have been the guiding force in many decisions made in their lives. With the death of Megan, those skeletons rattle deep within their souls. Though most stay hidden, they will not remain silent. Megan’s death will not allow them to.
A great read that you’ll a box of tissue or two as you read it. If you need a feel good story that has your emotions pulled in every direction, this is a book for you. The perfect read for the winter months coming ahead.
