Will has to let go of the tragedy before he can begin to live again.
Curtis Edmonds did a fantastic job with this book. Well written with characters you want to reach out and hug. The story is heartwarming, tragic but full of love and hope too. Viewing this situation from the male perspective is a journey through pain, guilt and self loathing. Thankfully though, it comes out right in the end. I applaud Mr. Edmonds first novel and can't wait until he writes more.
I found it drags in places but overall it's terrific.
I gave this one 5 out of 5 cheers because the book moved me.
