This book is real, that is the best way I can think of to put it. There are a million words floating around in my head right now, it's so hard to form coherent thoughts. Amazing, gut-wrenching, fantastically written, down to earth, full of love and adoration, redemption, honest. The character of Beth just exudes strength and confidence. To have endured everything she did, and to come out of it like she did. I know the fact that she had people she could trust and lean on, but for the most part, it was all her. Everyone should have a Tommy in their life, and especially a Ryan. I cannot wait to see what this author puts out next, as I will be first in line to devour it!
