But when a women, Delora, moves into the house across from his and becomes preoccupied with him she ends up being his saving grace.
This is a book about the depths of depression, the strength it takes to return to the search that had previously taken everything away from you. The spark that one person can give you just by holding out a hand of friendship and allowing you to take your time to accept it.
A book which reminds you why you are alive. That no matter how bad things get there is a way to improve them. Even though Ben lost everything he is able to find himself again and reconnect with his musical past.
A fantastically written book with a great flow and a great plot. Please read this book and you will learn so much about pain but also so so much about healing.
This book has action, mystery, love, hate, joy, pain, thrills. This is a book for everyone and anyone.
