An emotional rollercoaster that dips a long, long way and makes the reader feel the raw hurt depicted baldly but realistically. If you are looking for sugar coating during the journey then hard luck.
If there's one thing about life that this reinforces is that however painful the downs, you have to hold on to and rejoice the ups. If you want to believe in miracles, fine, that's your choice, I put my faith in people and their strength, and this story reaffirms that. But be ready to sniff a bit on the way!
The author manages to cut to the heart incisively without fuss or falling into the trap of overdressing the tale being told. To my eyes, there's a real talent here waiting to be encouraged and mined.
