"I've read it three times 🤎"
"Wow what a book. Best book I’ve read in years. Can’t wait for the movie to come out next year. It’s gonna be amazing ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"
"For those of you who like reading before seeing the movie/tv show this book is *chefs kiss*. It’s based of a book in the Bible (Hosea) but you don’t have to read that before reading this. It’s so beautifully written and does at great job of showing patients and love. If you’re a fan of Nina Dobrev and Eric Dane are both in the movie. The movie comes out the end of January 2022! I’m so excited and I plan on rereading this book!"
"It is a classic Christian story—love and forgiveness "
