A struggle with life? You can keep going.
This was a very touching story. I really enjoyed it and the journey. I too wish there was more depth in some places. The thing that bothered me so much though, and why I couldn't give it 5 stars, was that they jumped to the past and back into the story so often that I wasn't sure what time we were in many times. Maybe in print that came through better, but not in audio.

Not an Enjoyable Read
I really did not enjoy this book at all. The entire story is written in a woe is me, feel sorry for me, I am so great, I did/do so much, I get so little, frame of mind. Larissa continually reminds the reader how great she is. How she has done so much for Ian. How poorly she got treated at the time of the accident because she is not officially family. She pretty much throws a two year old sized tantrum throughout the entire book. We are constantly reminded of the huge sacrifice she made. The thankless job she wakes up to every day and goes to bed with every night. This book is exhausting and I could not wait for it to end. I find the entire story far fetched and hard to believe these are truly Ians words.

I am thankful this book was provided to me for free through the Christian Audio Review Program. I cannot recommend this book at all.

I recommend this book.
A very special and amazing true story about God's love mixed with human love to create a match made in Heaven. The way it's written will keep your mind well exercised because of its constant movement forward and back in time. The reader, while not Larissa, surely could be mistaken for her (she does it well).
