Incredible story about love and addiction and finding your family

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was a bit apprehensive going into this book, given the nature of the story but I should have known that what I was given by Marina Vivancos would be so much more than just a book about addiction.

She weaves the reader so deeply into Dominic’s life that each of his hurts, each of his relapses, each poor choice and each fighting moment when it becomes too hard to keep going, become our own.

And then, as in each of her books, she brings hope, a found family, one with only kindness and no expectations other than the offering of love.

Dominic is an incredible character, Flor even more so, but Cat and Esteban, they’re the real heroes at the heart of this amazing journey. A couple willing to see beyond the addiction, beyond the prison record and offer up a way forward.

Not to take the steps for Dominic, but to give him a solid foundation to strike out against. A truly beautiful story.
