As I always rate the books I have read, this book was always on the list. I really wasn't sure about it but downloaded it anyway. And I am so glad I did. What a very heart warming, touching, inspirational, loving book. I fell totally in love with Julie. Admired her for the gutsy person she was and the woman she became. Did not see the ending coming until 2 pages before I was reading it. Beautifully written and well versed on so many levels. I could feel the emotions all through the book. Would recommend this book to anyone.
