Not knowing why someone is taken from us is a hard thing to handle. This novel touches on one family's experience with suicide, and how the people left behind deal with their grief and moving on. It is not easy being left behind wondering why.

Well told story of taking each other for granted and planning to connect later, but later never comes.

Madeline Starling's ascension into heaven is stalled. Her death was ruled a suicide, devastating her husband Brady and their 17 yr old daughter Eve. They thought everything was perfect at home.

This novel unwinds the details of Maddie's death while building a strong bond between father & daughter with the help of Maddie from above and Rory on earth.

I was absolutely enthralled with this story of Madeline Starling, who jumped to her death, yet continues to watch over and influence her daughter and husband. And the ending?? I didn't see that coming!
