I thought this book was fantastic. It is definently a must read. It shows you how even in the midst of horrible circumstances that God will always be with you. After reading Symphony of Secrets I was excited to read another book by Sharon Hinck, and though completely different the book was just as good. So check it out for yourself...and let me know what you think.
