Holding on to Hurt"If you do not cry while reading this book, I suggest you get check for a pulse. :) I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys true-life love stories. It's not a romance per se, but it's a story about the greatest love of all - the love of family."
When I’m not ‘mom’, I spend all my free time writing what readers call compelling, fun, and loving stories. You will often find me at Starbucks, sipping Lattes, laughing or crying with my characters.
