Review: "Raw Edges" by Sandra D. Bricker

About the Book:
Grayson McDonough has no use for teal ribbons, 5k runs, or ovarian cancer support groups now that his beautiful wife Jenna is gone. But their nine-year-old daughter Sadie seems to need the connection. When Annabelle Curtis, the beautiful cancer survivor organizing the memory quilt project for the Ovacome support group, begins to bring out the silly and fun side of his precious daughter again, Gray must set aside his own grief to support the healing of Sadie s young heart. But is there hope for Gray s heart too along the way?

My thoughts:  
I'm a big fan of this author, and I really enjoyed this sweet story about Jenna, her daughter Sadie and her husband Gray.  About a year after Jenna passes away, Sadie and her father receive a card in the mail from Ovacome   (a Cancer support group in their area ).  Sadie wants to join the group and help with the memory quilt that they are making, and when she and her father attend their first Ovacome meeting and meet Annabelle..they both realize how much this support group will help them. 

Sadie really likes Annabelle, and I like the way that she forms a friendship with her right away.  
The author combines the topics of Cancer, losing a loved one, moving on with life and making a memory quilt into a heartfelt story that will leave you smiling, laughing and maybe shedding a tear or two...

I loved the journal entries and Bible verses from Jenna to Sadie at the end of each chapter, they are so sweet and uplifting!   
I recommend this book to everyone that loves touching heartfelt stories!

I received a copy of thsi book in exchange for my honest opinion.
