I read this story a while back and never rated it because by the time I finished I was still sobbing. Here I am tearing-up again, trying to put the darn stars and now I'm sobbing again. I shouldn't have even liked this book. It has kids. It has a GFY hero, and for goodness sakes, it has a dog! All of those should have hit my tolerance level into a DNF, and yet it didn't because the lost love and sadness didn't come from the death of a marriage, it came from the loss of the most loyal friend. Sh*t, I'm sobbing again, dammit.
