Noo! I didn't want this book to end! Even though I've finished it I find myself wanting to go back, read more. But there is no more... All that to say, this was an amazing book! I mean, how could you not love Willa? And poor Lukas! Even the side character was a joy to read about - yes you Margot! Sometimes I don't like it in books when they have a side character. I don't like how it pulls away from the main characters. But I loved it all! Roseanna is a truly gifted author. She can so easily pull you into a story, to where you feel what they feel. Feel the heartbreak, grief, and joy. Of course Lukas did get on my nerves some in the end, but oh well, at least he came around! And as always, Roseanna wove spiritual content in there perfectly, giving Willa her music. (Have to read the book to understand that reference.) There were also parts in this book that had me laughing out loud. I love Willa's spunk! So yes, if you haven't read this one, you must! And if you haven't read the first one in this series either, what are you waiting for?!
