This is a beautiful book. When I first started reading this; I was thinking it was too descript, and moving a little slow. But, by the time I got to the end - I was wishing for more details and looking at how many pages that were left thinking the end was coming too fast. This book is fabulous. Although, it is a tear jerker...so beware. I normally do not read boo-hoo'rs (I didn't cry until THE PART; you will know when you get there) - and this is going on my favorite list with 5 stars - so you know the ending is well done. So, don't let that one minor detail stop you from picking up this wonderful book. You will not be sorry.
