There's nothing unique or special about this book because very few I got sent this book in exchange for a honest review, all my opinions are my own and thank you so much to the publishers for sending me this book! It's one of those books that I will read to my future children, if they'll like it or not. And some have a much nicer style and structure, not even mentioning the language. The entire book, basically, occurs over the span of one night - just while highlighting what the future might be like and how the couple met in the first place.

But writers have the magic in their pens, using which they can take us back to that hallowed place. Children 'get' the poems because they describe these simple things as though they were being described for the first time ever, and that's obviously how children perceive the world.

Rubin claimed he didn't believe in the songs she had and she admitted that she felt the material was a little rushed. Emily and Noah are struggling and so are Kari and Ryan. It's a world that he finds strange and foreign. I have to say of the many books that Karen Kingsbury has written and I have read, this has got to be my favorite one. I suppose none of the things in this book that felt too much or far fetched would feel that way coming from someone who has heard humanity's worst.
