OMG, OMG, OMG! I can't even explain how much I loved this book! I wish I had a blogger here so I could ramble and they would formulate my mess into a beautiful review! There are things I foresaw happening but it never tainted the story for me. As a mother and woman, Alix broke my heart! This book will stay with me forever! This is the story of Alix and Nick from childhood until adulthood.
“You can’t turn love on and off like a light switch, no matter how hard you try. All you can do is wall it off, one brick at a time, until you’ve created an impenetrable fortress around your emotions. And once that fortress is built, you camouflage it so well that even you can’t see it anymore.”
“Do you want to know the real reason I came back, Alix?” It was because of you. You’re my roots. Wherever you are would be home to me.”
