So many times I have heard people talk about how a book has changed their life and just thought 'that's ridiculous' but now I truly understand that saying.

Karen, My Reading Corner
It is certainly an emotional journey, but one that is so adeptly delivered, that makes you feel more alive and grateful for having experienced it.
If this story doesn't pierce your heart and leave you looking at your nearest and dearest in sheer wonderment then, I'm sorry, but you have failed to appreciate the depth of emotion contained within its pages.
