The review of this Book prepared by Megan

Katies love of her life breaks it off but leaves her a diary to help her understand why, as she reads the diary she discovers a wife and son she didn't know about. The diary is from Suzanne for her son Nicholas and her love for her son and husband, along this ride we find that Suzanne has a major heart problem. The ending is predictable but one of the few really beautiful books I have read in a very long time, it leaves you sad but knowing that life does go on, and sometimes (maybe most of the time) the story ends happliy ever after. This is not the type of bood I normally read, but have loved all of James Pattersons books so I took a chance, I started reading at 8:30a.m. and finished it by 11:00a.m. I never put it down. I think if you give this book a chance you will not regret it I have not had a book touch me like this one in years and years of reading.
