My Review: This is the first Robin Lee Hatcher book I've read - I know that's hard to believe for some people! I found the story to be very compelling. The author kept me on a roller coaster ride of emotions that I think would be a reality in a situation such as the one in this story. I loved the ending because it wasn't a perfect ending. The story stayed with me for awhile after I finished and really begged to be thought out in my own mind. I think there are few things worse than never having a way of really knowing with facts if something did or did not happen. Some say the unknown is always worse than the known. I guess that's where faith comes in - trusting in the unknown. Well, actually, trusting in the God of my unknown. That's the lesson I got from this heart felt story. Looking forward to reading another by RLH.
