First word that comes to mind - Heartbreaking. Followed by fantastic! Kathy Harris needs to put the warning label right on the front page -- You will get sucked in and you will run a gauntlet of emotions. Sera Taylor is that woman that everyone loves (well except the crazy religious socialite, Beverly). She is genuinely interested in everyone and how they are doing, forming strong bonds with many of the patrons of her music store. When her world is torn apart by a devastating illness, the bond between Sera and the people in her world become everything to her. As all the characters struggle to deal with mortality, love, and loss, you are going to be completely enraptured with the story that is being laid out before you. Husband, Bill, struggles to show his emotions while young singer Mack seems to have a new set of feelings. Best friend, Ruby, provides some sass while Tommy Lee provides the aggravation that keeps Sera going. When Kathy Harris approached me to do a review for her, I had told her it sounded like a heartwarming and heartbreaking story that I couldn't wait to read. It was just that. The characters are not always likable. They are raw and emotional and sometimes human reaction is just not good. They are, however, all based on their love for Sera and their true feelings shine through in the end.
I give this five stars and warn you that you will need to have the kleenex handy.
