If I tell you right up front, right in the beginning that I lost him, it will be easier for you to bear. You will know it’s coming, and it will hurt. But you’ll be able to prepare.
Someone found him in a laundry basket at the Quick Wash, wrapped in a towel, a few hours old and close to death. They called him Baby Moses when they shared his story on the ten o’clock news – the little baby left in a basket at a dingy Laundromat, born to a crack addict and expected to have all sorts of problems. I imagined the crack baby, Moses, having a giant crack that ran down his body, like he’d been broken at birth. I knew that wasn’t what the term meant, but the image stuck in my mind. Maybe the fact that he was broken drew me to him from the start.
It all happened before I was born, and by the time I met Moses and my mom told me all about him, the story was old news and nobody wanted anything to do with him. People love babies, even sick babies. Even crack babies. But babies grow up to be kids, and kids grow up to be teenagers. Nobody wants a messed up teenager.
And Moses was messed up. Moses was a law unto himself. But he was also strange and exotic and beautiful. To be with him would change my life in ways I could never have imagined. Maybe I should have stayed away. Maybe I should have listened. My mother warned me. Even Moses warned me. But I didn’t stay away.
And so begins a story of pain and promise, of heartache and healing, of life and death. A story of before and after, of new beginnings and never-endings. But most of all . . . a love story.
I loved this book didn't want to put it down at times. I wished there was a happily ever after ending but it was still a great book! I highly recommend!
This book has made it to the top of my favorites! The story took me to unexpected places where I often cried, laughed and felt all warm inside. I loved Georgia's character. She was fearless, innocent and so real I wanted her to be real so that we could be friends. Moses was a complicated character that even when I wanted to dislike him, his loyalty and love overpowered all other emotions. I highly recommend this book. You will all love it!
Love AL Amy Harmon books!
This book is AMAZING!!! Moses has my heart in every way. This story was powerful, touching, and beautifully written. Because of this book i'm going to start listing my 5 greats every time the world becomes too much. Everyone should read this book. Even though this book was an "other world" aspect, i don't consider it paranormal. Other than that one aspect, the book is completely contemporary. And the aspect is mentioned fairly early in the book so it won't catch you be surprise all of a sudden. Its actually hinted at the first few pages that we meet Moses. Everyone should read this book. Amy Harmon can do no wrong in my book :)
