Book Review

After reading Terri's moving real-life story, I understand the importance of organ donation. I will be an organ donor! The devotion and togetherness that this family had for one another is refreshing. Being from North Carolina there were so many details that were real to me. I read the book from cover to cover in one sitting. This book is a spirit lifting experience. - Crystal Ellen
