This book was powerful emotionally. That is my first thought. The story of Lissa and so many other characters was a steady stream of emotions, learning, growing, gaining understanding, and so much more. Follow Lissa as she deals with the emotions of grief and loss due to the death of her mother. Follow her as she comes back from the brink of blackness. Follow the story of Ted Draker as he learns that the way to caring for your family can only be paved with stones of truth and honesty. Follow Silvano Rossi as he learns that the best way to help his family is to do it legitimately and without hurting others and stepping on them to climb the "ladder." Follow Katy Lynn as she finds forgiveness for others and a new way to live life even through dramatic changes. Follow Janelle as she journeys through grief so real it still hurts after 2 years. These characters are dealing with real heart issues and life issues and through it all we start to piece together how they are all ultimately connected to each other. It's a powerful story of the words we listen to and choose to follow in our lives - good or bad. I am typically not a fan of this kind of story, but I found it quite good and definitely worth the time. Hope you enjoy as well!
