This book took a while to grab me but when it did, I couldn't put it down. Well worth reading! For anyone who thinks they have problems and that life isn't fair, meet Jane Howard.

This is one of the best books I have read in a long time! Very realistic story of love and loss - what a person goes through, what they feel. anything but predictable, extrememely engrossing with plot turning and twisting to the very end of the book. Extremely rich, deep, thought provoking. I might compare it to Jodi Picoult or one of those authors who really makes you think about life. an amazing book and story!
