A compelling read that is a little out of my normal reading wheelhouse. I really enjoyed the 1st person POV and the writing, in general. It was maddening, moving, and ultimately heartfelt. A great read.

A very good book, I cried reading the first chapter and then throughout the rest, until the end. A very good story!

This is one of the best book I read in a very long time, a page turner. An amazing and incredable story! Matt's love and his fight to save the baby from his brain-dead wife is far beyond the law and faith. A must read...
