“A place for everything. Everything in its place.”
“Chasing his past at the cost of his present.”
“Maybe sometimes making a difference wasn’t even about doing some huge task to help someone or change their life. Sometimes it was enough to help them not feel alone.”
“There was a whole lot of living ahead. New memories to make.”
The best part about this book? An ARC sharing group, the Book Expedition Crew, shared this with our group to get us started. This book has traveled from Illinois, to New York, back to Illinois, onto California, all the way to Virginia, then returned to California where it was finally sent to me in Missouri. The journey of this book and the notes made in it by each reader is amazing.
If you read this book, I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
