In 2022, I’m setting monthly reading goals and have the goal to finish at least one book each week. So far, I’ve mostly been able to stick with that!

Verdict: 4 stars
Any time I can read a book that will better help me understand what it’s like to walk in someone else’s shoes, I want to read it. This book is the very honest story of one mother’s…
