My Thoughts -
This book would make a great book club selection. There is so much to talk about! I read it in one day, I just couldn't put it down. That says a lot because I am a very busy woman.
Katie was very likeable and my heart went out to her because she wanted a baby so badly. Just when you 'think' you have this book figured out there are a few twists and turns in it for you. I highly recommend it!
