Jessie and BJ. The battles they face firstly her demons and then his. The reader not only identifies with the depth of the characters but also the depth of their pain. The line that showed Skip’s horror was “ and when did you last see your mother”. His answer was chilling.  Through the pain viewed and acted upon, strength persevered and the love developed between Brad and Jessie eclipes them all. I received an advanced copy of this book and recommend to anyone wanting to be a winner, not a victim.
