This book was amazingly put together. Four women, one goal, all with secrets. The suspense of that alone pulled me to the story. But once I sat down to read, I was immediately hooked from the first page. I wanted to keep on reading and reading until I got to the end to see what happened to these 4 new friends. This book has so many struggles that are dealt with, ranging from grief, to depression, to longing and hope. The four women in this story, set out on a journey to South Africa and are immediately met with people who have even bigger problems than their own, like AIDS and HIV. Through this book, I was actually able to feel as though I was on this mission trip with these ladies, feeling what they felt and seeing what they saw. I cried, I smiled, and I prayed. But most of all, I felt God's love through this story and to know that there is hope in everything....no matter how hard life may seem. This book has a little of something for everyone, from love, to friendship, to suspense, to God's loving grace. I highly recommend this wonderful read with a 5 star praise!
