    I LOVED this book This book was not what I thought it would be, and did not turn out as my brain expected after reading the title It s a wonderful inspiring story I picked it up at the library one day, and thought, Hummmm A quick read to make our lives better to encourage us to let love change our hearts and sustain us, by following the example of Jesus Christ and the love he shared with all.
