Can they're love persevere, will Jake prove himself worthy of Abby's love, and will Abby finally be able to take down the walls she's been using as shield all her life. The only person to break through was her Nana, and now she's gone from her life.
This was me while reading this book:
Maybe I'm just a wimp, but dear God the stuff that happened to this girl was too much for my heart to bare! This story is a about pain, suffering and loss, but then the characters also learnt to forgive and let go of the past and live in the now. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it although I was a sobbing mess.
