My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As the tears flow and the emotions roll through me, I try to come up with the words that can adequately describe how this book made me feel. So many things come to mind: pain, sadness, darkness, confusion, sorrow, beauty, survival, love, acceptance, growth and always remember to grab whoever you love and dance. When the tears flow hours later, mourning for the life that could’ve been, grieving for the loss, feeling the pain but also the strength of the two men still not only here but thriving, loving, living…that’s when I know that a story has truly touched me. Years from now when I’m asked what books impacted my life – this book will definitely be on that list.
