Cassandra Webb’s every waking minute is devoted to being a great mother and wife. She takes five-year-old Noah to the library each week, volunteers in his kindergarten class, and even coaches his soccer team. She makes sure her husband’s uniforms are always laundered—even though he hasn’t worn them the last six years—always has his game day snacks on hand, and meets him for date night every Friday—which consists of one sided conversations at his bedside and watching his favorite take out remain untouched.
Pearl, a mysterious visitor at the care center, suggests that it is only Cassie’s love still tying Devon to Earth when he has been ready to move onto Heaven for quite some time. If Cassie will but open her eyes and heart, she will discover the path she should travel, one that will bring relief to Devon and much joy to her own life. But Cassie vowed never to give up on him. She never has and she can’t now, even after meeting hapless, single soccer-dad Matt.
I was really excited to read this book because I love all the other books I’ve read by this author. I didn’t read the summary of the book before starting to read it, so at first I really wondered where the story might be headed. The main characters in this story face some very difficult circumstances. Circumstances I would never want to be in. They face their circumstances as best they can, with a little help from Pearl. I enjoyed seeing how the story evolved and the growth in the characters. I admired how they handle their situations, even if they didn’t always handle them perfectly. This really was an interesting story idea that was well played out. I loved all the main characters, and the boys added a beautiful added dimension to the story.
Rating: 5 stars – I loved it!!!
