I did read the letter that came from the author and was struck by his comment that the story was not Kim's but of the people who were left behind. Immediately the book the Lovely Bones came to mind which to me, was the story of all the people left behind after the death of the central character ....whose name escapes me! If this book even comes close to the Lovely Bones we are in for a treat!Happy Reading!
I agree with you! "The Lovely Bones" is an awesome read, one that still haunts me. I am hoping this book will be similar.

I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.
