I cannot begin to describe how striking this book is in its depth. A stark reminder that we are all human, this chronicles the tragedy a young woman faces coupled with joyous moments that cause sharp pains of guilt until at last she is freed by the knowledge that while things will never be the same all hope is not lost. I bawled, I admit that freely because some parts were just so emotionally charged and raw and they carried me back in time to when I lost my grandmother. She was my rock, my cheerleader, and my conscience; Much like Daisy was to Lily all her life. This is a moving novel that reminds us to never take anything for granted.
