I tried to like this, but it was immediately obvious from the first page exactly what this book was about, how the story would be told, and what the outcomes would be. It was also dreadfully mediocre sort of plodding along in a not bad/not good way - one clunky shoe after another. Just couldn't do it.

This definitely pulls at the heartstrings. My best friend was killed in a car accident where the driver had been drinking and just like in the book, charges were presses against the driver. So as I was reading I couldn't help but compare and wonder if the driver had gone through the same emotions and thoughts that Lexi had. And at first I thought Jude was being over dramatic with her grief, but it made me stop and think how I would be in her position and it made me change my view of her rather quickly. This book is one that will stick with me long after I've finished and one I will surely recommend.

This story was so captivating it was hard to put down however the punishment they wrought was too extreme and I felt the atonement was too little too late. Former foster child Lexi befriends affluent Mia then falls in love with Mia's twin brother Zach and all of them are strongly influenced by the twins mother.

I had been meaning to pick up a Hannah book for years now and had always, ALWAYS opted for another instead. Now...I am kicking myself. If all of her books are this wonderful, I am in for a real treat. No amount of a review can do this book justice, but I can say that this book will be passed around may family until it is dogeared, taped and smudged by tears. It will be talked about on facebook, the phone and around the table over coffee. Why? It could have been any one of us....

I loved this book. It...

I loved this book. It was my first Kristin Hannah book - even though I own most of her work - and now I can't wait to read another one. I cried - several times. I seriously can't tell you the last time I cried when reading a book and reading the last 2/3rds of this one, caused me to cry and cry. The first 1/3 of this book was just meh to me though. I will say that I almost couldn't Jude's mourning - how it carried on for years and years and the fact that she was so hateful about it. Also, I was glad for the way it ended - I could see no other ending and it would've ruined it for me if it was any other way. Anyhow, I will definitely recommend this one!! I won this book from LibraryThing.com - Thanks!
