Rosy Chen: Omg, this book made me cry so much, it's so emotional but it's very well written! definitely recommend!!

Emily Kmack: This book has a great plot and storyline. But it requires editing for grammar and sentence structure. It can be a little sloppy but I think the author can improve greatly. It's worth checking out and reading if you doubt mind the grammatical errors.

jacqasiamcafee1: Such a beautiful story. Really helps to continually build your faith. With God all things are possible.
