    1. It took me less than a couple of chapters to fall in love with this book and clear my schedule of everything else in order to give it the appropriate attention I believe this is a book that anyone would be able to relate to Whether you are married, a parent, or a single person there is a part of this novel that is certain to touch you This book will make you stop and evaluate your life A very introspective novel, this is told from the point of view of Kelvin, a main character who is on a quest t [...]
