This was a wonderful book and I read it in just over 2 days. I was so near finishing it last night that I read on until 2am before finally realising I better get to sleep as I needed to be up early in the morning. It was very difficult to put it down though!
I came to this the wrong way around really, having just read Casey Watson's newest book before it (Grooomed). Tyler was in that so I kind of new some of what happens-but it didn't spoil it in the least. Even though I knew, I didn't know all the circumstances leading up to it and so I was so moved at the end I was in tears while reading the final chapter. Tears of joy though-it does have an uplifting ending. There are many hard times and surprising events before this though.
I was totally gripped and will be reading more by this author. If you like books by Cathy Glass, Rosie Lewis, Maggie Hartley, for example, this has a very similar style: written from fostering logs from the many years Casey and her husband have been fostering. Emotional, moving, memorable-a wonderful read.
