Bring out the tissues, ladies, because you are going to need them. This novel is heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time. You will root for Rachel and hope that her dreams come true. The characters are so real and relatable. I really enjoyed the way Ross wrote this novel. It was the perfect plot line. The dialogues were good and not too revealing. You will be sitting on the edge of your seat, cheering Rachel on, and biting your nails to find out what her future holds. The descriptions were spot on and very inviting. I could almost picture everything in my head as I was reading it. I would definitely read it again and again. A very good cover, too.
