    " Liked it in the sesne that it is like a Pay it Forward premise except it's red gloves. This story was about reuniting with a long lost dad who was now in the military. Of course he was sent on a deadly mission and would they ever get to reunite kept it "captivating" until the end....Delilah. "

    " It's quite embarassing but I actually cried in this book. This book's main theme is hope. Hope that God can help, that he will help. I loved every single bit of the books, especially the pictures, I want a husband that will love my daughter as much as Mike did for Hannah in this book. "

    " This book was fairly easy to read and I didn't feel very realistic. It is supposed to get you to have faith but I guess I didn't feel that it got the point across. Cute story. "
