My rating of the book, F- [worst] to A [best]: B+

Description: When the pain of loss shatters two people--one from the inside out and the other from the outside in--how do they find their way to faithfulness, grace, and love? Only over time and distance will they eventually discover that it is through turning to the One who is faithful, whose love never fails. Lenore and Daniel have a cozy home and a wonderful son, a mirror image of his father. Lenore loves her life and wants nothing to change--except for one thing. As innocent as it seems, her request is the beginning of the end, and their life together unravels. Lenore takes little Scottie and begins her quest for meaning, purpose, and a new start--as far away from those bittersweet memories as she can get.

Review: Overall, it was pretty good, for a Christian novel. And when I was able to get into it, I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. While the book didn't have a typical storyline that Christian fiction tends to have for the most part, it did have a fairly typical ending to the book. Overall, it was quite enjoyable. I don't know if I will read it again, but it is one that I would consider reading again.
