My Review: * * * * *
The author, David Tillman, shares the story of the first two years of being a widower and newly single dad to Kayly following the death of his wife, Minda, to cancer. The story is well written with gentle honesty, and I found myself nodding along in understanding, awed by the author’s parenting, and at times laughing out loud at the humor in a single sentence. The story is told in such a way that I felt as if I knew the characters. I have no doubt that Kayly will grow up to be just as beautiful a person as her mother. I will definitely be reading more from this author in the future.
