I really enjoyed this book As someone who has gone through a divorce I can relate to the feeling of being branded with a big D and thinking I would live with that stigma forever Now that I am blessed with a wonderful husband and children I am thankful for second chances This is a wonderfully redeeming story that I would highly recommend, especially to those needing to know there is hope after divorce.
