Samantha Crawford, An acclaimed storybook artist, seemingly had it all until losing the love she cherished most. Now fighting despair, she is obsessed with tracking down the murderer of husband. With no leads and no hope, Sam prepares to take her life until providence intervenes and she is reunited with her childhood friend, Joe Bradford.
Dying of kidney disease, Joe spends his last days serving fatherless children in an under resourced community. Observing Papa Joe's tireless love for "his kids," Sam begins to find new purpose until she comes face to face with her heart's desire. The innocence and hope of a child competes with the lure of revenge in an effort to show Sam how, even in life's darkest of circumstances, Love is above all.
A book based on a True story and also been made into a film, Was an amazing read and did bring tears to my eyes at some points. I couldn't put the book down from start to finish i just wanted to find out what was going to happen every time the page turned. I enjoyed that Joe looked after all them fatherless children and did everything for them, Loved them as his own really. I was happy to see Joe and Sam be reunited again and also hearing the stories about Joe and him being the samurai warrior told by Sam did make me giggle.
I dont want to give too much information away about the story so i would recommend anyone to give this book a go and read it. I will be seeking to see the film as well.
