What I loved about this story...  
After reading her first book, Pieces of You, I was very excited to to read this new story.  Like with Pieces of You, this story does have a very large 'emotional pull' to the story.  It just pulls you in and you really feel for the characters, especially the main character Molly who is diagnosed with an life changing illness that for obvious reasons changes the way you think about life and relationships etc...  Right from the beginning I have to admit that I was hoping that Molly and Ed get together, which is the one question that doesn't really get answered until nearer the end of the book.  I didn't particularly warm very much to Sam, Molly's husband.  There are obvious reasons for this but won't go too much into that because of spoilers.  What I also enjoyed was that not only do we follow Molly and her story we follow Ed and his story.  His story was just as emotional as Molly's.  

Ella has a way of making characters feel real and the plot so addicting with plenty of twists and turns along the way.  I loved this story and can't wait for her next one!!
