This is definately the most emotionally moving, suspenseful, gut-wrenching, romantic, spiritual, tragic story I have ever read. This one has it all! It seemed as if the author herself was right there next to me, reading it to me, taking me with her as she lived those experiences. **WARNING**- this book had some in-your-face, raw human tragedy and loss! BUT it also had a deeply spiritual love that balanced it all!
