    emotionally charged

    Well told story of taking each other for granted and planning to connect later, but later never comes. Madeline Starling's ascension into heaven is stalled. Her death was ruled a suicide, devastating her husband Brady and their 17 yr old daughter Eve. They thought everything was perfect at home. This novel unwinds the details of Maddie's death while building a strong bond between father & daughter with the help of Maddie from above and Rory on earth.

    Well done

    Thought it would be predictable. It was anything but. Very good read.

    Loved it

    What a different story line. I thoroughly enjoyed the odd first person narrative switching between the varied characters. We certainly can not take for granted what we are told to be true...

    Must-Read

    A mother commits suicide leaving behind a self-absorbed husband and a teenage daughter who now have to try to figure out their lives without her. The story alternates between three narrators. Maddy, the mother, tells her story as she watches her family and friends try to figure out how to cope with her death. Eve is the daughter who is trying to figure out why her mother committed suicide, what is now important in her life, and how can she ever be “normal” again. Brady is the husband and father of Eve and he now has to take care of himself and take care of Eve. What I took away from this book is how much a person is taken for granted. A mother who takes care of her family seems unappreciated, a father who works hard to provide for his family seem unappreciated, and the daughter who is just enjoying life, learning how to manage life may seem to not appreciate anyone. Yet when one of those people are no longer involved in your life you realize how much you need them, miss them, and how much you need them. I finished the book and thought about the characters, the family, and their story. Eve, Maddy, and Brady stayed in my heart long after I finished their story. This is a debut book by an author that is now on my must-read list.

    Life

    At first this novel gives the impression that the ending will be the sappy happily ever after one expected, but still worth the read. The ending couldn't be further from the expected though. A story about grief and learning to keep going.
