Goodreads|Amazon This book was beautiful. As with a few of Beverly's previous works in this world, it had the emotional destruction followed by the beautiful healing. I cried and debated just giving up, but in the end it was a beautiful journey and it was worth it to see Hope's ending. Sometimes you start a book and you think you know where it is going to go. You know who is going to end up with who and the likely how. I SWORE I had it all figured out with this one. I did. I was wrong. and then maybe right. You'll see. When the curve ball got thrown, my whole idea of where the book was going crashed. I held my hope, but until about 40% in, it could have gone either way. Hope had such healing to do. So much to come to terms with and to figure out. Then throw Antonio into the mix and he had just as much to let come to the surface. I loved how he treated her during this journey. It was beautiful. I can't say enough good things. If you want a book that leaves you filled with Hope and love, then read this. It is a journey about being true to yourself and taking a chance. Overcome the hurt and grow from it.
