My Review: This was a really good book that showed the power of love. Despite the fact that the whole thing with bringing people back to life was a little far fetched I did enjoy the book. It portrayed a beautiful picture of how sometimes loving someone is painful, yet in the end, no matter the pain love is worth it. I loved Ella-Mae’s character. She has spunk, she’s never afraid to fight for what she believes in, and she realizes her mistakes. In addition, her mother was a fantastic role model, who always stood up for what’s right. There was nothing objectional in this book and it was a truthfully enjoyable read.
