What a gripping and amazing testimony to motherhood and the courage it takes to be who we are. One day a tragic event strikes and it will forever connect three mothers in a way that they never thought possible. They will probably never meet but their bond can't be broken. One mother is driving with her son, having a day off from school to just spend time together... Another mother is trying to get her life back on track after having a baby and struggling with postpartum... The last mother has a son with Asperger's and she is so happy that his life is starting to normalize and he's doing great in high school and headed to college...then she gets a phone call and tragedy strikes... How will these mothers cope? How will they know what to say to their children to make them understand? Such a powerful story that I advise every woman to read...it's an amazing depiction of what motherhood truly is...

The story line is really good. I like that it showed how three different Mother's handled the same tragic experience but I wanted more. I felt that the characters needed to have some type of connection with each other. It felt like it just stopped in the middle or even the beginning of what could have been a great book. I know that this is a short story, but there could have been more to the story without making it a full novel.
