When I read the dedication, I know this story is going to be amazing. A story for all of the mothers in the world.
Rattled perfectly conveys the emotion a mother had gone through in making a decision for her child. It was so difficult and heartbreaking.
When Kelsey had to put her daughter for adoption, she believed that it would be the best for the child. Brady would be cared and loved with a better chance of future. It had been six years but Kelsey still remembered the feeling of holding her baby for the first time before letting her go forever.
She wanted to make a tattoo to be reminded of her baby. She had been saving up some money and finally she got it.
Alex never expected the girl he resented to be the one whose body he had to draw on. He had to get the job in Reeds so he convinced her to allow him to be her artist
There are always two sides of coins. Alex saw Kelsey as the girl who abandoned her child while she saw him as the boy who doesn't understand.
Throughout the story, the horrifying past of these two souls were revealed and they tore my heart. There were sadness, grief and pain in it. But the most beautiful thing in it was Kelsey's abundant love for her child. I got to know what Alex felt and I can't blame him for feeling what he did.
To show love through art way also hooked me into the story immediately.
