My Comments:

I love this book and I found that it's an emotional book.

The plot is simple but its so well written that I can't help shedding tears in some parts of it. Not much mystery in this as I could guess who is Jonathan's mother from the first few chapter.

I guess what makes this book such a good read is that it's based on two true stories combined. At the back section of the book, the author had also revealed the two true stories which leads to him writing this book and also a word of wisdom to his readers.

Thank you very much to Stephen Arterburn for writing this wonderful book.

For me it rate 5 stars out of 5.
