There was so much drama poured out no Gray by her mother, Maggie, so much feelings that were left hidden for far too long. I can only imagine how very different Gracie's life would have been if Maggie had sought grief counseling after her husband died. Instead all that burden was unleashed on her innocent daughter who because of her loyalty to Maggie let it hurt her over and over again. However I really loved Ms. Ashely Herring Blake's commitment to showing the importance of a mother and daughters bond. So while Maggie's bond with Grace was flawed it was still there as evidenced by the end of the story.

There was also that of Eva and her mom whom she lost but whose enduring legacy helped Eva forge new bonds with her guardian Emmy. And of course I can't neglect to mention the force of nature that was Emmaline who by shear will remained a steady rock for Grace who wasn't her daughter, for Eva who wasn't her daughter either and for her two own sons. Even though she herself lost her own husband to infidelity. What a remarkable woman, truly an inspiration and a role model.

Excellent read! The characters were all very well-developed and realistic, and I was very invested in wanting them to be ok.
