I was able to review this book the past few weeks. I have opened it, read a couple of chapters, and then set it down. I like her writing style. I love her passion. Her history is heart warming and breaking all at the same time. However, I just couldn’t get into it. I do have friends with girls who have stated that it was the best book they have read in a long time and they are thrilled to have it to help them with their daughters. I’m not sure if that was the disconnect for me? Having sons? Jill Kelly’s story is wonderfully written. It will speak to your heart. I could have been in a funk when reading it, or busy, or with my cold. I really wanted to enjoy this book as much as my friends did. I will pick it up again.
“Heartfelt and honest, this book overflows with the deep desires and inspired longings I have for the two young girls I love beyond words. It addresses the common passion, hopes, and dreams that every mother has for her children.”
