A Must Read! You'll Be Glad You Did! As with Judith's first book, Long Time Coming, I could not stay away from reading it until finished. The plot is so captivating that while reading I truly wanted to jump to the end of the book to read the outcome. Okay, with great restraint I refrained! Judith's depiction of issues so relevant today motivates me to want to do more to improve our environment, the lives of our animal friends, and those struggling in life with physical and mental health issues. There were times I actually had goosebumps while reading, times of tears, and times of smiles. I am only sad that I have finished reading the book, but I anxiously await another. An excellent read that I highly recommend. Read more
