My first thought after finishing this book was I wish I could give it ten stars. I loved this book so much that I read it in a single sitting. I love Catherine Ryan Hyde books and have read everything she has ever written. I would read a grocery list if she wrote it! Please don’t read too much into the blurb, it’s not really about a survivalist, it’s about what it did to a five to eight year old boy emotionally and how a nearly broken Anne helps bring him back and how he also healed her. in his own way. Anne and Remy really grow and learn from each other.

This one is from two points of view, we have five-year-old Remy and his foster to adopt mother Anne. Remy’s situation broke my heart but by the end of the book he and Anne and their family helped put the pieces back together again. It was such an emotional story, it was intense and sad but also very compassionate. I will be thinking of this story for years to come. I hugged the book when done.

Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the Advance Readers Copy.
