No, I haven't seen the movie...and I'll probably wait a while now that the book is fresh in my mind (I hate reading/seeing the same story close together, drives me nuts!)
Anyways, my good friend Jaclyn lent this to me after her disbelief that I had neither read or watched this, apparently I was missing out.
The premise of the story is this: Holly's husband dies at an early age, the book centres around the year that follows his passing. I know, it sounds terribly depressing. Who would want to read something so sad? Well you would if it was well written, which this is. Yes, there are parts to cry over, but there are smiles in here too. I liked it. I couldn't put it down really. I just love explaining to the girls at work that I'm not tired because my kids kept me up, but rather I couldn't put a book down. So thank you Jaclyn for brightening my day by giving me a good ole cry.
