    sassy, short read

    My biggest complaint about this book was that it’s a novella instead of a full-on read. I didn’t realize that going in and there is so much goodness that could have been explored but unfortunately there weren’t the pages. Gideon has lots and lots of scars, both inside and out, and I would have LOVED to get the chance to explore those more. How Daisy manages to break down his fences and get him to think about living again. How he manages to adjust to life after war. How he goes from giving up to trying for more. It’s such a compelling story and while we get parts of it there is so much more there that I would have loved to get to experience it. We do get to know Daisy a little bit more. The girl has grit, which she needs not just to make her way into Gideon’s home (and his heart) but also to expose the horrible conditions that veterans are experiencing at her local VA. Her husband came back from war suffering and she fought to get him the care he needed. It’s heartbreaking but she didn’t back down and you have to admire her for it. She takes that heart and courage with her when dealing with Gideon. While the ending is an obvious heart grab, it also worked and I really enjoyed how it wrapped up the story … if only I’d gotten about 200 more pages before I got there :) As long as you are OK with a fast (and somewhat cursory) story I think you’ll enjoy Adams’s story. I’m pretty sure if I’d gone into it with a different understanding of what I was getting it would have been so much more satisfactory since I liked what I got, I was just expecting something different. **Review given honestly and freely after receipt of a reader copy. This opinion is completely my own and was not influenced in any way.**
