I enjoyed this book though I didn't love it. For me, sadly, there were a few too many kicks to the face and not quite enough picking up until the very end of the book.
Every time things started to look up for Tommy and the kids, life kicked him in the nuts again. And while I knew that all would work out in the end I was kept feeling unsure for pretty much the whole book. It was kind exhausting.
Yes, this book is about hope, trust and overcoming. It's about honestly good people. It's about the strength of family and self sacrifice. It's about love.
Bobby and his mother were wonderful people. Tommy was rough around the edges. And I liked them all.
I just didn't love anything.
But that's okay. It was a good book, just not for me.
