This book is a MUST read! I keep saying to myself, “Once I get to the next chapter, I will go sleep!” After several hours, I couldn’t stop and I finished the book that night. Each character is beautifully crafted to speak to your heart and mind. This book will challenge you to examine your thoughts and actions because each direction will lead you down a pathway! Lastly, the book made me realized how grateful I need to be for my Beaux! Thank you Kira Cheree for sharing this gift!!

This book is an AMAZING read. It was hard to put this book down once I started reading. I initially thought this book was geared towards women exclusively, but to my pleasant surprise, there were so many practical and spiritual truths for men as well such as myself. If you have experienced loss, grief, love, restoration and redemption, all of these elements are creatively woven into this incredible redemptive story. KUDOS to the author. MEN, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!!
