So, I'm not even sure what to write, exactly!  This book was not what I thought it would be yet so much more than I expected.  This book left me thinking about it long after I finished reading it - to me, that makes it a remarkable tale.  This is a beautiful story that had me anxious to turn the page to find out what would happen next.  There were a few surprises - I actually gasped at one in particular!  There is sadness, joy, anger and love.  Josh, a police officer recovering from a near death experience, reconnects with old childhood friends.  The turn of events from that point on are uplifting and real.  I was cheering on for his friends to stand strong and, of course, for Josh to find his true soul mate.  This is the first book I've read of Ms. MacLean and I am more anxious than ever to read more of her works, because this one had me thinking about it long after I finished reading it - to me, that makes it a remarkable and wonderful story.  Don't Miss This One!!  (Received copy for honest review)
