“Vivi Holt is a wonderful author, her stories are full of adventure, surprises, and clean tender love. I’ve never read a book by her that I didn’t love.
This one was so well written, a balance of tears, holding your breath and sighs. I love how she takes her readers on a journey one you can’t wait to turn the page to see what happens next and when you reach the end, you don’t want it to stop! Ed and Hattie’s story is perfect. It was fun having a front row seat to their relationship. A pure pleasure to read, I’d give it a 10 star if I could.” – Amazon reviewer
