I didn't care for this story I had read over half of it. In some ways it was too sad and simply reminded me how I had lost my 36 year old husband because of complications from an epileptic seizure. I knew about the pain that the had been portraying. This story just wasn't for me.
I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
