WHAT I HAVE TO SAY:  Normally I am a fan of Karen Kingsbury...I have read several things she has written and really enjoyed what I have read...However, this one started off rather slow.  I was not enjoying it at all...I made myself keep reading it so I could post an honest review...THEN, all of a sudden, something I was TOTALLY not expecting happened!!!  Who knew that was the direction it was headed - I was like the mom in the story, saying there is no way, it can't be true!  Once I read that key part, I couldn't put it down.  Turned out to be a really great story!!
