After receiving this book from the author herself, (and reading the book description)I dove right into it! I have to honestly say that it sucked me in from the very first paragraph. My heart was breaking, tears were forming and at that point, I was hooked. I completely devoured this book in one sitting!
I loved the characters in this book, starting with Milly. I really felt for her at the beginning of the story. Everything she went through as a child and all she lost along the way made her a stronger person. When Milly sets out on a new life journey (and a bucket list in hand) we get to meet Lacey, her sister from another mister who becomes her bff, the ever so delicious, farmer boy, Cree and his adorable daughter Annie, who will simply melt your heart. This book gives truth to the saying, "Sometimes good things fall apart so that better things can fall together".
A heart-breaking, heart-whelming, emotional, lovely story with a country twang! My kind of book! A stellar debut novel from HJ Bellus. Can't wait to read more of her work!
