To Live Again was a touching novel, full of determination, courage, and family. Readers who enjoyed the other Dawn Rochelle novels will enjoy this book as well. Although I don’t prefer to read this type of realistic fiction, this book was well written and conveyed Dawn’s feelings brilliantly.
I really like this book. It was very touching and made me think what people have to deal with in life. Also, I have a thing for books with romance.HAHAHA!
