As the book goes on, she learns some things about her past that she doesn’t like. Things about her father, her husband, her mom and sister. As she comes to terms with who these people were to her, she must also decide who she wants them to be in the future. I found this story to be a great way to delve into such weighty topics, yet keep us rooting for Nell all the way through.
The only thing negative that I would say about the book is that there were too many times of taking God’s name in vain. I can put up with most any swear word. But take His name in vain and the fur on the back of my neck stands up. So I would caution you if that is something that bothers you. I won’t lie, it bothered me. But I did finish the book because I wanted to find out the truth about Nell– and whether it’s possible to really change who you are.
