  • I enjoyed most the character development of Samantha. The title hits close to home with those making their way back, such an immense story with great meaning.

  • It is great to read a love story that is so down to earth and shows a young girl who is like so many girls who are real life and trust God in all areas of life .

  • If you haven't read it, I suggest you do. Perfect book for those young girls making somewhat bad decisions in the relationship department. Might help to steer them in the right direction.
